Downton Abbey

I recently started watching Downton Abbey on Amazon Prime Video.  Yes I know it’s a pretty old show but strangely enough I find two story arcs to be very compelling.  The first story is the one that follows Mary Crawley.  The writers so far has made her out to be a selfish, strong willed, stubborn, cold and calculating yet petty as only the rich can be.  But despite all that, I can’t help but want to root for her to prevail.  The second story that I find fascinating centers around Anna May Smith. The writers have made her to be loyal, honest, and compassionate.  In some ways, she represents the complete opposite of Mary yet at the same time, you see how both women support the people they care about in their own ways.  Aside from these two main story arcs, the servant political intrigue is pretty amusing as well as the bickering between Isobel and Violet.

This show is supposed to last for 6 seasons and I’m already on season 3. Egads!
