Downton Abbey Season Two (quick TV Review)
Whew, they sure upped the drama with Season Two, didn’t they? I guess a World War will do that.
When I briefly talked about Season One, I mentioned plot points that were telegraphed by a mile, and this season had that in spades. Did anyone really think Thomas wouldn’t wind up working back at the house by the end of the season? That Matthew would never walk again? That Matthew would marry Lavinia? That once Lavinia became ill, that she would live? And so on. And I haven’t seen any of season three yet, but jeez, stop picking on Bates, Downton writers! Still, it’s a good show, and I maintain that the theme sounds a lot like the theme to The X-Files. Or maybe it’s just that they’re both in the same key and follow a similar chord structure.
I’m only seeing Season One of Downton Abbey on Netflix Instant, so I guess we’re out of luck for now.
