Downton Abbey (2010-2015)
I have been wanting to watch this for a long time, and I guess it was meant to happen in Australia, in a binge watching spree. What a lovely show for those who love everything English. So many meaningful themes and messages. The biggest take away were CHANGE and LOVE. Wealth, though a backdrop, seldom made it ahead of those two. Starting from the sinking of the Titanic in April 1912, navigating through World War l and ending in the Christmas of 1925, it was a pleasure to watch the trials and tribulations of the Crawley family, their help and all that happened to them and through them. I will miss them, but I hear a film adaptation is in the offing? This one, I won’t object to.
