    ^^Ha!

    People would be indifferent to that show if Maggie Smith wouldn’t win that 2nd Emmy for her role and Michelle Dockery & Jim Carter were not nominated constantly over actors considered more deserving. Not to mention its Best Drama Series slots.

    Thankfully it can stop taking up Emmy slots. 

    S1 was delightful, but after that? Hell no.

    Let’s be real. That teaser trailer is corny as well. WTF is that song? Completely out of place for a period piece.

    To the other comments on here…come on. I HATE period pieces that are more about pretty costumes and art direction than interesting story, but Downtown Abbey has been great. It’s extremely unique. Watching season 5 (a great season), it felt like the show was reaching its natural conclusion, so I’m happy they are going out on top (something I hope The Good Wife does this season as well).

    I’m going to need a new show to hate-watch.

    Y’all know Downton Abbey’s final season is winning that Emmy, right?
    So all the haters better start rehearsing their mean posts.

    Very good show in it’s first season, pretty good show in it’s second, fine in it’s third and then just not good in it’s 4th and 5th, so we’ll see how the 6th season goes. And with all the nominations they got, they couldn’t even get Laura Carmichael in for the 4th season, the one good thing about the season and imo one of the most deserving performances of the show.

    Glad we agree, who tf is gonna miss this bullshit? And with this ending along with Mad Men, (this is wishful thinking), maybe my Empire can fill up that soap spot.

    Downton will always be far superior to Empire. There are so many drama series (‘The Americans’ for example) that deserve to take Downton’s spot instead of it. I think it is a bit sad that you guys go onto a show’s thread just to share your hate.

    Can see this sweeping the Emmys next year for its final season! I’ve enjoyed being a fan of a show that recieves so much hate yet so much love from the voters.

    Oh, and Downton is wayyy better than Empire.

    I’ll take the first sentence as a joke. OK? And boo hoo, I didn’t consider all of the fans’ feelings on what is now a terrible show. People are able to share less than stellar opinions if they want to for a show. If it sticks to your ass, that’s your fault. Stay pressed or get over it.

    Take the first sentence as whatever you want that doesnt make you any less delusional. There is a reason why Taraji is Empire’s only major nomination. I didn’t say you couldn’t share your opinions and I don’t expect someone like you to care for feelings. I just said that it was a bit sad that you felt the need to put hate on a show’s thread when you could be doing much more necessary or pleasant things with your time.

    Lmfaooo,delusional? Because I don’t care for your precious Downton Abbey? You’re reaching to the sky. “When you could be doing much more necessary or pleasant things with your time”. If you have San issue because not every response is butterflies and rainbows, you’re the real delusional one and need to stop being so sensitive. As I said, your feelings or “concerns”, mean zilch. You could be doing something more good with YOUR time instead of getting offended because I don’t like a boring and ho hum period piece. *plays the world’s smallest violin*.

    You are delusional because you think Empire is in any way better but don’t worry that is just my opinion. If you actually bothered to read what I have been saying I don’t have a problem with the fact that your opinion doesn’t agree with mine I am just pointing out that it isn’t necessary to post it in the malicious way you chose and on this thread. Also, calling someone out for being unnecessarily unpleasant on a thread doesn’t make me sensitive, as I couldn’t care less about your actual hate remarks, it just makes me not a dick. Before you try and continue this tedious argument, which so easily could have been avoided by you deciding no longer to spread hate on show threads, I suggest you actually read my comments this time rather choosing to read what you find easier to argue against.

    So calling someone delusional isn’t just as “malicious” because they don’t share the same opinion with you? And me saying “Good Riddance” and calling the show terrible makes me malicious? Get over yourself and grow up. This isn’t elementary school where you throw a bitch fit over someone not liking the color green and saying “YOU ARE A MEANIE!!” Wah wah wah. You ARE sensitive, you ARE insecure about the way I said how I didn’t like the show. Get over it. You’re pathetic and cushy attitude isn’t worth my time anymore. And BYE.

    Ugh whatever. Once again you didn’t read what I said so I guess there is no helping you.

    With an 8.7 rating on IMDb, it always suprises me to see how many people dislike this show. 

    I absolutely adore this show, every season, especially 1 and 5. The trailer is heartbreaking. I hate to see it end.

    Maggie Smith not only deserved both of her Emmys, but also the one she was supposed to be nominated for this year. The ensemble acting on the show is superb, but Dame Maggie steals the show (like Cookie on Empire, but in a more sophisticated way).

    I’m a fan of both Empire and Downton. I probably like Downton more because it has been with me for six years now and seeing it end is very sad.

    I don’t understand all this hate too. I loved the first three seasons and I found that the fourth season took a fallen in the quality of the series, but it was soon recovered in the excellent season five. I will really miss the series and characters, mostly Maggie Smith.
