Downton Abbey Season 5: The stars reveal fantasy endings
When "Downton Abbey" returns Sunday, the year will be 1924 and change is everywhere; here come the Roaring Twenties.
Mary tries to living in the present, rather than continuing to mourn the tragedy in her past. The customs of well-bred courtship seem to be undergoing revision. Mary suggests to Anna (Joanne Froggatt) that courting couples could test out the physical side of things before marriage. Later, Tony Gillingham (Tom Cullen) suggests a weekend away-- with adjoining rooms.
Daisy is tired of seeing the world pass her by, she intends to pursue an education in case she really does have to run a farm someday. Lady Rose is pushing to get a wireless (radio), but for now, Lord Grantham is holding the line.
A couple of the "old duffers," notably Molesley, are worried about aging.
Not only is the government now led by a Labor Party prime minister, a shock to the old way of life at the grand manors, but the threat of more intermingling between the upper crust and lower classes can only be a worry to Lord Grantham and his set.
"The nature of life is not permanence but flux," Mr. Carson (Jim Carter) wisely observes.
"Things are changing whether we are sad about it or not," observes Mrs. Hughes (Phyllis Logan).
Maybe the pace of the drama is more rapid to signify the hurried pace of the more modern world. Or maybe the production is running in fear of losing its momentum. It appears to calm down after the first hour.
While change abounds, some things remain the same: Downstairs, Barrow is still a bully, while Bates is still hiding a secret; upstairs, Branson remains torn between his humble beginnings and his current elevated status, while Lady Edith (Laura Carmichael) is tormented by the fact that she abandoned her baby to the couple living on the Grantham property.
Luckily, Lady Violet (Maggie Smith) still manages to get the last, best word:
"Principles are like prayers, noble of course, but awkward at a party."
This season's guest stars include Richard E. Grant, Anna Chancellor (a riot as randy Lady Anstruther), Rade Sherbedgia, Harriet Walter and Peter Egan.
Even when it's slow, "Downton" reunites us with favorite characters in a distant time of manners and dressing for dinner. The prettiest soap opera on TV continues to offer a refuge from the present while mirroring contemporary attitudes and evolutions. Really, it's all about change.
House of Cards Returns for Third Season February 27th on Netflix
The third season of Netflix political drama House of Cards, featuring Oscar winner Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly and Michael Gill, will be available for streaming on Friday, February 27, 2015. The third season is comprised of 13 new episodes, bringing the total to 39.
House of Cards was adapted from BBC’s miniseries of the same name and based on the novel by Michael Dobbs, and tells the story of Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey), a Democrat from South Carolina's 5th congressional district and House majority whip who, after being passed over for appointment as Secretary of State, initiates a plan to get himself into a position of power.
House of Cards helped put Netflix on the map. Netflix doesn't reveal viewership numbers for its original series, but an unofficial estimate from Procera claimed that 5 percent to 15 percent of Netflix subscribers watched at least one episode of House of Cards Season 2 on its opening weekend. We may get a better sense of viewership soon, as Nielsen will start measuring streaming services starting this month.
House of Cards received nine Primetime Emmy Award nominations in season one, becoming the first original online-only web television series to receive major Emmy recognition. Season two resulted in 13 nominations (including Outstanding Drama Series in both years). The drama, to-date, has won four Emmys.
