About this deal

Ali has been covering TV and movies for more than four years, all while wrangling Digital Spy’s social media and video channels - for which he received a PPA 30 Under 30 award. Recently he's begun collecting Star Wars interviews like Infinity Stones and has spoken with The Mandalorian's Pedro Pascal, Andor showrunner Tony Gilroy and the creative team behind The Bad Batch.

This Blu Ray DVD Set includes all the episdoes of the first four series of the popular ITV costume drama, following the lives and loves of the staff below stairs and the family upstairs in an English stately home. It's funny, I grew up thinking all British TV had the "soap opera" look, from watching shows on PBS as a kid, until I learned that it was merely an artifact of the PAL-NTSC conversion. I can do the math part, but I just don't know enough about video editing and the software to put it all together. Home to the Crawley family for generations, it is also where their servants live, plan and dream and they are as fiercely jealous of their rank as anyone.Lord Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham (Hugh Bonneville) sees his family heritage, especially the grand country home Downton Abbey, as his mission in life. The new Universal sets, though also has 21 discs, are NEWLY PRESSED EDITIONS with different special features and episode breakdowns (with the new Universal format menu and all). I've also bought a few TV BDs direct from the UK that were slowed down to 1080p/60 24fps, like The Lost Prince, and I've read that the UK BDs of Life on Mars and Pride and Prejudice are similarly slowed down. All 52 episodes of the award-winning ITV costume drama following the lives and loves of those above and below stairs in an English stately home. Both “Behind the Drama” and “BAFTA Celebrates Downton Abbey” are available on YouTube, so I think this new set should be the definitive set.

Since PBS had the original set and aired in edited in the US, they likely had to distinguish that they were the original versions, not their edited versions.the black and white box is slimmer, but you have stacked discs, similar to how Paramount and Universal have been releasing their complete series DVD sets.
