Around New Year, PBS television station showed the entire first season of Downton Abbey in one day. At once, I was captivated by the storyline and the characters. I have been following the drama ever since. Recently, I finished watching Season Two, absolutely love this British Drama. Every character, big or small, servant or master, each has their own stories to tell, flaws to face and obstacles to conquer.
As a viewer, I enter into their world, experience their joy and sorrow, hope and helplessness. This Drama is beautifully filmed. The storylines are intriguing and moving. The characters are realistic, vivid and memorable. It makes a simple kissing scene extremely elegant and sexy. The booming popularity of Downton Abbey shows the world that a solid story and believable acting are essential to a quality drama, and the mass public has the ability to recognize such gem.
