As elegant and terrific as in previous seasons. Much credit to the writers for great storylines and character developments.

July 2, 2014....This show just keeps getting better and better. The sly comments and diplomatic mind games, the tragedies and triumphs, and we mustn't forget the COSTUMES! Right now, this is my favourite show ever. Can't wait for Season 4, although with all the holds on it, I guess I'll have to. Should give me something to look forward to when summer is over!........July 2, AARRGGGGHHH, just finished watching the end of season 3. How could they do that??? I'm almost heartbroken. sniff.......Note: Sept 9, just now starting to watch Season 4!)

The drama always verges on being over the top, but Julian Fellowes keeps it all together.

Series continues to be outstanding and historically interesting.

Dialogue in season three is painfully sappy. The story has become like being on a treadmill. Skullduggery, misunderstandings, happy resolutions...more skullduggery, more misunderstandings, more happy resolutions, ever more skullduggery, ever more misunderstandings... on and on. Lovely to look at but getting very tiresome.

I hate when they preview the shows before airing them, as there is always a bigmouth giving the story away before the rest of us get to see it. PBS needs to stop with this as I like to wait until the season show finally comes on, as I don't want to know ahead of time. I didn't much care for season two, found it a little slow and boring. Don't ever berlieve I'll ever get to the point of liking Mary or her grandmother, the dowager countess. Love Maggie but hate the dowager countess, she is always sniping at anyone less than she is, can't keep her nose out of other people's business and I wish Cora's mother in season three would have very much put the old hag in her real place. What nerve to talk about someone and thinking or else not caring whether they heard her comment or not. I give this five seasons at the most, getting kind of tired of it all anyway, need to move on to something more stimulating and exciting. Enough with the deaths Mr. Fellowes, that in itself is starting to get very very old and dated. PBS has really done a bang up job of running season three into the ground with it's constant repeating over and over just to lead up to season four. Can't stand Mary, don't think I ever will like the selfabsorbed snob. Can't stand the old dowager either, what a bunch of nonsense! Robert seems to have gone through life with his head in the clouds and in doing so the estate has suffered from it. They don't appreciate the Americans but don't mind marrying in to their riches just to save their asses. What a useless bunch of British aristocracy!
