    Downton Abbey: The London Season


    Season 4 of Downton Abbey might be my least favorite (though it’s still 5-stars to me) but I think this “Christmas Special” was a very wonderful finale for the season. We get to see a new location, get to see Shirley MacLaine’s wonderful return, we get introduced to Cora’s brother played by Paul Giamatti, and we also got some great set up for the next season.

The “America” sequence has always been my favorite number from this musical and this iteration did not disappoint. As for the performances, all but one (the expected one), were so great. Rachel Zegler will be a star, her Maria…
