Downton Abbey - Season 3! - Page 3

post #41 of 51

I am also a Downton fan as is my 7yo son and my mother.  DS is already pestering me about season 4, which can't come soon enough.

 

I knew Matthew would not be around for Season 4 so I assumed the worst.  My mom watched it before me and emailed me "don't let DS watch the last X minutes" so I was braced for it.

 

I like the way Branson has evolved over this season.  I suspect he will take a bigger role going into season 4.  I was glad Mrs. Hughs showed that maid the door.  I hated the way she was making him feel bad about his position in the family.

Gossip/Potential spoiler:

According to the internet, the actress that plays O'Brien doesn't want to come back for season 4.
I don't get why these actors want to leave such a successful show.

I wouldn't mind seeing O'Brien hit by a truck.

 

FIREdevil.gif I said it, and I"m not sorry.

During the last episode, there were hints she seemed to want to go to India with Shrimpy and Wife.

DD and I finished watching Season 3 tonight. Someone gave us the DVDs and we quickly became hooked. We've had a great time watching. Maggie Smith is priceless. I love how she can steal a scene with just a look and a single line.  

 

We like watching some of the smaller moments that depict life in the early part of the 20th century. Things like the butler trying the new telephone or the maids and footmen flirting in the servant's hall.

I know this thread is a couple months old but I just finished season 3. I was NOT impressed with Matthew dying, but should have seen it coming with how cheesy he got in the last episode, heck the whole season. I didn't like him much in season 3. 

 

I think Obrian should leave. She's done so much and has been involved in so many plots on the show that I don't what else they could do with the character. 

 

I love how honest Mary is about her being bitchy. Hehe.

I'm pretty O'Brian will not be a part of season four for the whole thing - if I recall correctly, three of the actors didn't resign their contracts for season 4, Matthew being one them. I think she'll end up taking a job with the Scottish lady where they went for the hunting party. They seemed to be laying the groundwork for that in the last episode. 

 

Can't wait until season 4 starts...

I just watched the past 3 seasons in a little over a week... though I had already seen most of the last episode of season 3 earlier in the year on TV so I knew what was coming... I can't wait for season 4!!

Same here. It's not supposed to be available in the US until January, but I think resourceful folks will probably be able to watch in September or October. :-)

Yes, this! I've done the fan thing with lots of shows (and books and movies), scanning for news about all the actors, and what's coming in the next season. I'm just enjoying this one as it comes.

However, thank you Kitchensqueen. I'll let dh know to keep an eye out for the show, starting in September...
