    Downton Abbey - First Episode Season Six

    Great episode, but I thought they resolved the blackmail issue with Lady Mary a little quickly. Very good start to the final season overall.

    Yes, I agree....a very good start to the final season. Did you happen to watch the 1 hour program before the first episode? They mentioned that Season 6 is all about "resolutions" to all that has happened in the prior 5 seasons! I can't wait for next week!

    I am late to the Downton party, so watching the special presentations was helpful. It has made to want to watch the earlier seasons. I really started watching in Season 5. So I missed out on a lot.

    i think it's a great start, too... but it moved very quickly overall... hard to absorb what was happening

    Yes I agree about the blackmail settlement. I wonder if there will still be an issue with it later. There are a lot of loose ends to tie up! I hope Edith ends up with a happy ending.

    I watched the last episodes online. So sad to see it go. But there is always something good on Masterpiece.

    Watched it and will watch the rerun on demand......also watched the pre-program....kind of strange to see the
    "characters" in "real life"--- I must say, some were more attractive in character. Also watched the story of the actual castle afterwards..very interesting...love the history of England......so grand.......let's see, what's coming back again soon!

    My dear, dear hubby actually came in and tried to talk to me about 5 minutes into the program. First time in 32 years I've told him to be quiet!

    The problem was that if it went on with time, we we all end up mourning the lost of Violet. People didn't live into the 90s back then. Lot of interesting rumors going around. It is going to be enjoyable. At least they ended the you know what that just seem to go on for too long!

    Me too but I'm enjoying watching them again. I pick up details I didn't notice the first time.

    I meant I watched the ending season on line. I don't like to have to wait for weeks to watch when I can watch it all.

    Yes, I watched it as well as the show before showing what's to be expected. Its nice to know the real names behind the character they play. Also interesting to see what these folks really look like in real life compared the to drab looking character some of them play.

    My DVR decided to take a nose dive so couldn't record it but I preordered Season 6 a couple months ago so will be able to watch them again later. Went back to watch all the previous seasons 1st just to bring me up to speed again.

    I absolutely adore the love story between Mr. Carson and Mrs. Hughes. I agree the Mary "problem" was resolved way to soon. It would have been fun to see Mary go after her blackmailer in full Mary fashion.

    Mr. Barrows seems to have taken a shine to George and Marigold. The horsey ride was classic!

    Yes, me too. So we both know how it all turns out.

    I have wondered why Mary is so cruel to Edith and the parents let it continue. Lady Mary seems to always have her parents make things easy for her.

    I enjoyed it too. I watched the before show. I also watched the one on Highclere Castle where it is filmed. I think it was a repeat last night because I watched it a while back. Anyway, I told Mr. Stitchnripper I found it very satisfying.

    I guess what was resolved was the Mr. Bates and Anna threats of being arrested again for Mr. Bates' former wife's murder. A person confessed and there was a witness. Also, resolved the blackmail of Mary which her father paid off the blackmailer.

    R.I.P Downton Abbey. Last ever episode, a Cristmas Special, just watched by my family. Winter will never be the same without it!

    I checked with the library, about season 1 to start. It is on hold right now, and when it does become available, I can only check it out for 3 days. Doesn't sound like a realistic amount of time to watch an entire season.

    It was the murder of Mr. Green (Anna's rapist) that was resolved.
