'Downton Abbey' Cast Previews Season Four | 'Downton Abbey' Preview

Not sure if I will be able to see Season 4 until it hits DVD. But if they actually show it on PBS and I can find it via Roku, I will definitely watch it during its initial american broadcast. Until then, this clip should soften the wait.

I've been watching Season 4 since premiere night, but I haven't had the time to post anything about it till now. Won't go into any episode reviews like before. But I will comment on a couple of things. As for the first episode, the big bombshell is that Siobhan Finneran who plays Mrs. O'Brian is off the show. Since I don't follow the ins and outs of the series during hiatus. So yeah, this was a pretty big shock for me when they mentioned it in the opening 5 minutes of the first episode. Her being MIA hasn't harmed the show (so far), but she will be missed because she was the catalyst for a lot of 'bad' things happening down below in kitchen-land.

The other big thing that happened in Episode 2 was the **** of Anna. I NEVER even thought of the show going in this direction. It's not that I have my head buried in the sand and that stuff like this didn't exist during this time. Of course, this has been around since the dawn of time. I'm just saying that I never thought something like this would be on Downton Abbey. Really curious how this plays out and if and when Mr. Bates finds out about it, is he gonna snap that f*ckers neck like a twig? Remember, he is on parole and will have the law looking at him very closely. That's why Anna is keeping it a secret....to protect him in more ways than one.

Episode 3: How f*cking awesome was that seeing Mrs. Hughes play Edna Braithwaite like a fiddle? I can't stand her (she is turning out to be the new Mr's O'Brian). So, I naturally took joy in her getting reamed by Hughes over Edna's "pregnancy". Game. Set. Match. Speaking of Hughes, when is she gonna hook up with Carson? They have been doing the mating dance for quite some time now, however subtle it is. They need to get their swerve on, even as old as they are.  ;D

Didn't realize that I already had an existing thread for Season 4. Consider them merged.

Episode 4: Man, it was torture waiting for Mr. Bates to find out what really happened to Anna. I was relived that he made his intention known to Mrs. Hughes that if she didn't tell him what happened, that he would be handing in his resignation effectively immediately and leave Downton Abbey once and for all. The tension between Bates and Anna was thick enough to slice and it was becoming unbearable to watch every time they were in a room together. I also think that I just need to see Bates kick the ever-loving-sh*t out of the Valet. Bring it on!!

Episode 5: Awesome episode. Why the f*ck wouldn't Alfred want to tap Daisy? Dude, work on your game and go for the girl that wants you...not the girl that has already rejected countless times! Ugh! Love the scenes with Carson and Moseley. It was awesome to see Carson still f*cking with him by refusing to hire him. Hahaha. Maggie Smith was awesome again. She is comedic gold and the scene involving the "disapperance" of the knife is proof positive that she has perfect timing. Props for the 'Ragtime' Easter egg by Elizabeth McGovern, which ironically was the first thing I ever saw her in.

Episode 6: The episode was okay for me, but I just don't like Rose at all. She may be the "life" of the party, but I think she's boring. Even her bi-racial story isn't cutting it either. I did like Violet Crawley's (Maggie Smith) little story line and how at the end of the day (after being looked after getting sick) she was "gracious" enough to play cards with Isobel. But the big moment comes at the end when Anna's rapist comes back to Downton Abby and Mr. Bates gives him the stink eye because it appears that he has put two and two together. Bring it on! Kill him!!!

Episode 7: Most of the episode was okay. This one was about new beginnings and letting go. Courtship. Mary has two dudes trying to lock her down with a third also in the mix. You have Isobel being pursued as well. And the oddest hookup and the one that makes perfect sense is Mr. Moseley and Miss Baxter. On the flip-side you have Jack ending it with Rose and you have Daisy sending Alfred on his way. Really not sure why she did that since she clearly has a thing for him, even if he did ask someone else to marry him (and get turned down....again). Not a good time to be Alfred. Ouch. So, Mr. Green is dead. Apparently he was killed when he got run over by a bus. Of course the writers don't show us anything so that the viewers are left wondering if Mr. Bates had anything to do with it since he was in New York at the time.

Episode 8: This was billed as the season finale, but I suspect that there will be one last 'Special Episode' which has been the case in previous seasons. As for this particular episode, I was not a fan of. It wasn't that it was horrible, but it was 2 hours long and 95% of it was just about the 'rich' hobnobbing with the richer. This was the very thing that I dreaded before watching the very first episode of the series. So, to see nothing but dancing and characters taking their wealth way to serious kind of deflated the episode for me. At least the episode had two things going for it. The first was having Paul Giamatti joining the cast. It remains to be seen just how much of his character we will see beyond the Season Finale. The other thing that saves this episode was the final shot of Mr. Carson and Mrs. Hughes wading in the ocean, hand in hand. Are they gonna finally get their swerve on?  ;)

The Special Episodes are usually Christmas Episodes, which is a common thing to have happen in the UK, and the don't count as parts of any series, typically.  I imagine that's the case, so... you're going to be waiting for a while before you get any more new Downton.

I kept thinking about whether I should pick up the new season or not.
