Too many things in one post. Break it up.
If you have any proposals, we can look at them.
Hmm that is perplexing. I’m surprised they would have such a big discontinuity.
Nice inserting unnecessary political spin on the topic.
I’m neutral. The actor is great, but the character isn’t that likable or that deserving of sympathy.
Glad to be of help... 😉
Maybe your friend has Thomaphobia — aka the irrational fear of the name Thomas, Tommy or Tom.
I would seek treatment immediately.
It’s fictional, so technically anything’s possible. However, the Brits and especially those controlling the peerage are very stick-up-the-butt, so any scenario where Mary could get any title is unlikely.
What doesn’t matter is expecting formal relations to be enforced in every conversation... in many cultures older people are routinely called auntie and uncle with no relation whatsoever. So to call such things an error could just be enforcing one’s own standards on situations where it is unnecessary and unimportant.
However, if you can produce a quote that happens in a context where it is inappropriate, there may be some validity to the error argument. Otherwise, it’s just commentary looking for validation.
Some quotes might help. Otherwise it is unclear.
Why not both?
Lots of stuff that happens in the series isn’t covered in the movie, so only a few spoilers exist in the movie.
I’m sure Julian Fellowes had ideas for a movie after season 6, but he knew he needed to make the ending okay without it.
I thought it was quite good. Pacing was good, if a couple relationship developments were a bit rushed.
Downton Abbey on the big screen felt appropriate and comfortable. The production was at a very high standard.
I’m a bit sad that this will probably be truly the last we see of the characters and places we’ve come to love, but it was a fine send off.
I do wonder how it will play for those who didn’t follow the show, but the one person I saw it with (who doesn’t even really watch period pieces) thought it was decent even though they didn’t know half of what was going on and was a bit puzzled by some of the dramatic moments.
It was a fine film.
They just didn’t want to be left out since it was s group thing.
Would appreciate if you post photos... you can take pic from neck down, if you want some anonymity.
Was going to see it early, but now seeing it this weekend... someone I’m going with never really watched Downton Abbey, hoping to tease them mercilessly about stuff they don’t know.
That’s quite a binge... there was a chance I would get to see an early showing, but it turned out to be on a bad day for me.
