I've been frustrated by the latest season of Downton Abbey. It began with the edited out wedding in episode one, was enhanced by too many Edith romance story lines and then the loss of Lady Sybil? Unforgivable.

While I don't know if I can keep watching Downton Castle Emoji anymore, I am, of course going to keep watching it. Who am I kidding? It will be terrible, and I will yell at it. That's my prediction for Season Four.
