I'm happy to report (without any spoilers) that it remains what it has been for years - a pretty melodrama, whose characters we've come to know well, grounded in a thought-provoking historical moment.

The final Downton season is satisfying, engaging and nostalgic. And if there is, at some point, a movie? You know we'll be watching.

Downton simply continues its sharp observations of human behavior among fundamentally decent people, as animated by some of the loveliest faces, voices, and cinematography on the tube, it still has much to offer.

The characterizations are beginning to get cartoonish.

An air of change and the sense of an era ending threads through the first episode... a terrific hour that winds up several long-running stories while stoking a few new ones as the series marks its final run of episodes.

Even when the series drifts towards the boring or trite, its exemplary cast and the endearing characters they play are enough to hold our attention.

The sixth and final season of the series delivers happy endings all around, as if rewarding viewers for their devotion to the lives of the wealthy and the service classes alike.
