‘Downton Abbey’ Season 3 Is Finally Here

PBS has returned the ‘Downton Abbey’ series to us loyal fans who have been waiting nearly a year for Season 3. It seems unfair that we wait a year for seven episodes each season, but I digress. I am still excited that my weekends will be filled with English nonsense.

If you haven’t tuned in to Masterpiece Theatre’s most popular series, seasons 1 and 2 are available on Redbox, Netflix, Amazon Prime and on iTunes. It’s a period peice that begins previous to WW-one, just after the sinking of the Titanic in 1912. By Season 3, it is 1920, post war.

If you haven’t watched the first episode and don’t want to read my review with some spoilers, stop here.

The first episode begins with preparations for the wedding of Lady Mary, to Matthew Crawley. Mary’s younger sister Lady Cybil arrives withe her husband (the chauffeur she ran off with to his native Ireland) much to the chagrin of all but Matthew and his mother. The Earl of Grantham, Robert Crawley has lost the family fortune in a bad investment. Mr. Bates is still in prison for being accused of killing his ex wife Vera. His new wife, maid Anna, continues to search for evidence to free Bates, believing he was wrongly convicted. And finally, Shirley MacLaine, whom I adore, joins the cast as Cora’s (Countess of Grantham) colorful mother.

So far this season is off to a great start. I am only sad that there are only 6 more episodes.
