You’ve just started the thread.

I’m going to be paying attention, but Dalton Abbey has a lot of fans here.

Lots of little...and big...story lines happening simultaneously.Perhaps you can borrow the DVDs from your local library.

Netflix. Get the first season and watch them all. Then get the second season.

I think Hulu has the second season, while Netflix has the first. Then your cable On-Demand should have the current season.

Will have to click past some adpages, though.

Warning: I run a linux system. It will help to have a good flash player installed (go to mozilla.org to install Firefox -free- if not), and I am not aware of any malware or virus's due to the nature of My system, so you are warned.

Feedback is welcome.

A lot of things are happening simultaneously. It really starts somewhere in the 1910’s prior to the Titanic. I bout the first two series and they’re now on series three. It’d be worth your while to buy series one and two from like Amazon and watch them. I’ll be buying the next series when it comes out. It’s a great period piece, nicely done. Perfect in every detail.

Minor spoiler alert:

I just saw what I think was the latest episode, and as a strong supporter of family values, I was disappointed (though not surprised...).

'Downton Abbey' Offers Sweetness ... and Sour Similarities to Age of Obama
Count me as one of the millions of ardent fans of “Downton Abbey." Light years beyond a drawing room soap opera, this finely lensed and brilliantly written and acted drama fashions such a rich tapestry of human interaction as to stagger and awe this happy viewer.

I watch it like a rabid football fan, aching for my favorites to move the heart forward; and booing the villains’ interceptions, fumble recoveries … and scores.

In "Downton Abbey" love is the prize and avarice the opponent. And when the yearning yields past pretense and love inevitably shines through, as it does even within this stilted, formal and pre-patterned hierarchy ... it’s absolute magic.

And startling so, without the usual cable compliment of car crashes, shootouts, stabbings and titty bars. What "Downton Abbey" does have is an anachronistic quality that is so sorely lacking in almost all productions on television or movie theaters as to render it a precious gem beyond value. That quality … is "sweetness."

Easy to understand...

Downton Abbey is outstanding but,except for issues of a technical/cinematic nature (thanks to a much higher budget),cannot hold a candle to Upstairs/Downstairs.I must say that Maggie Smith is the shining star of the series.
