Parade's End is a more focused and darker story than Downton, as it gazes into its characters' twisted souls and their self-contradictory attitudes.

The story pivots on a triangle, with unrequited love dangling like an elusive fourth Super Bowl appearance by the Jerry Jones-owned Dallas Cowboys.

The miniseries is engrossing in its portrait of two people stuck in roles they need to cast aside, but somehow unable to make the break.

It's a welcome gift to those who miss Downton.

It's a terrible disappointment, given the talent.

Parade's End has been a compelling, thematically rich and fiercely intelligent drama, as frequently moving as it was unexpectedly comedic.

Parade's End is one of the most accomplished and impressive productions you'll see on TV this year.

As the seemingly endless opening two hours of Parade's End droned on and on, I kept flashing to one of my all-time favorite Monty Python sketches.

The five-part miniseries moves as slowly as the Dowager Countess walking to a country picnic.
