    To be honest the trailer hasn't grabbed me. Probably because I'm team Edith and it looks like there's not going to be much for her to do.
    I do wonder if they will bring up that Queen Mary would go to people's houses and steal anything she wanted.

    Ouch! Forgotten already? You were just down ther
    I'm normally not interested in this kind of show but I absolutely love it. One thing that I like is that, with a few truly vile exceptions (Mr. Green, the original Mrs. Bates) the show largely doesn't have any straight up heroes or villains. Everyone is trying to be the best person that they are capable of being at the time. Now, in some cases, their best isn't very good at all, like Thomas' attempts at arch-villainy or Mary during her bitchier moments. But even then, they come across more as human than as evil.

    Every time I see anything set during WWI now, I can't help but wonder where Matthew, Thomas, and William are during all this.

    I don't think that it will capture any new fans but I just think it's lovely seeing them all again.

    At one point, when we saw a steam train and some envelopes, I thought, will this movie be about Marigold getting her Hogwarts letter?

    The UK Trailer, which has more plot, more dialogue, and more Violet being Violet. :)

    Wow, that's a much better trailer than the American version.

    Also, can we just rename the film "Violet Being Violet"?

    I too will be waiting in line for a ticket.

    Downton Abbey is my happy place.

    Yes and yes.

    I'll watch the Downton movie when it comes on T.V. if it gets half decent reviews. Not exactly the kind of spectacle that demands been seen on the big screen.

    And Trek ? TOS movies 1,2, 4 and 6. Maybe 3. I could happily live without the rest.

    I'm delighted Thomas has finally found some happiness.

    I'm going Friday evening (when it opens here in the US). I'm in the process of binge-watching the show to review/catch up (because I never got around to watching Season 6).
