Downton Abbey Season 5 won’t Disappoint: Episode 1 Review

Downton Abbey is back and the opening episode of the period drama’s fifth season does not disappoint, placing numerous long-running storylines and a plethora of new subplots into the chute and setting them off.

The sense of permanence that supplies Downton Abbey with much of its gravitational pull is front and center in this feature-length episode.
