I admit, I might be one of the few that hasn’t been awaiting each week for the next episode of Downton Abbey. Crazy as it seems, I’ve yet to read FIFTY SHADES OF GREY. Why? I guess I was never much for being a follower. I don’t have much more of an explanation than that. But, when my “boyfriend” bought me season one of this brilliant show for Christmas, how could I refuse? So, I watched it. And, by great surprise it took very little time until I was finished and needing to see the next season. And the next season. Actually, I’m only on season three at the moment, but since it recently had a finale, I thought I’d blog about what a gem it was to find and enjoy.
Who could disagree? If you’re into character development, you’ll love the bouquet of people this series has to offer. I’m certain that no matter who you are, you can identify with either someone from the upstairs or someone from the downstairs. And, I’m also certain that you can compare at least two or three of these amazing characters to people you know. You have the deceitful footman with the cunning maid; on the flip side, you have the valet with all the integrity of the man of the house with his girlfriend, the housekeeper who you just want as your best friend.
It’s been awhile since a show has held my attention as this one has proven to do. It’s worth a watch. It’s also free if you have Kindle Prime. Win-win!
