    This answers a lot of the questions I had about the setting for the Series. Enjoyable. Also, I have to call out C Caldwell's 1 star review. It's ridiculous to give a 1 star review of a show you have NOT SEEN because of an issue you have with how iTunes displays reviews!!! To add insult to injury, his issue is based on his/her opinion that he can't make an informed decision on purchasing this show given the current way reviews are presented when his/her baseless 1 star review skews the rating and makes it harder for everybody to make an informed decision. Reminds me of the Yelp reviewer who gave a local brewery a poor review because they don't drink beer....

    Loved the setting for Downton Abbey, but I was wanting to check out the ratings and it won't let you see the lower ratings. Why? I wanted to see what others said about it -- when you look for the most unfavorable it doesn't let you see anything but the 4* -- there were other 2 and 3* comments and they never showed up. Just thought that you need to let people see all of them so they get the full picture, otherwise it is only letting people see the positive comments and not the others that might give insight into what might be something important to those considering buying the video. I just like the real story...not the preferred version that doesn't show all sides of people's comments. So I gave it a 1* on the viewing of the comments until this is changed. I can't make a real decision about something until I can see the whole report. I liked and enjoyed the Downton Abbey series and watched them all, but I would have bought this video if I had been able to see all the comments. Just my thought on the matter.
  • A "must see" for any true Downton Abbey Fan

    This show is a great introduction to the castle and a lot of the history ties into the story line for Downton Abbey.
  • So cool to watch!!!

    After watching all the chapters of Downton Abbey, now the settings, the Castle, the history and everything shown seems just looks like home. Most interesting and endearing.
