The Gold Box Deal of the Day presents the five-disc set at 60% markdown from its SRP price.
Downton Abbey tells the story of a complicated community. The house has been home to the Crawley family for many generations, but it is also where their servants live, and plan, and dream, and they are as fiercely jealous of their rank as anyone. Some of them are loyal to the family and committed to Downton as a way of life, others are moving through, on the look out for betterment or love or just adventure. The difference is that they know so many of the secrets of the family, while the family know so few of theirs. But for all the passions that rage beneath the surface, this is a secure world, serene and ordered, and, at first glance, it seems it will last forever. Little do they know, family or staff, that the clouds of the conflict that will change everything are already gathering over their heads.
Note: Blu-ray.com reviewers Jeffrey Kauffman and Brian Orndorf have reviewed the individual Season One and Season Two releases here and here.
I really wish the individual season sets would drop in price. I prefer to own the individual season sets as opposed to these combo season sets that the UK shows seem to do. In the UK they are just the individual season sets in a box which I do not mind. But, this set is way more compact.
