We are grateful to have Downton Abbey in our lives, but our devotion to the show is the very reason we're so irked at how it progressed this season.
Although we've come to terms with the loss of Matthew (Dan Stevens) and Sybil (Jessica Brown-Findlay), it doesn't seem like the writers quite know what to do in the wake of those deaths. So much of this season felt either forced or false or just failed miserably. Has Downton Abbey lost its charm?
Before launching into the season as a whole, let's go over the highlights of the finale, shall we?

This week of television included lots of moving and shaking: The Oscars proved that an awards show about movies is no place for dancing. House's Wilson frolicked as a woodland nympho, er, nymph. The winds of change came to Big Love. A suicide bomber went splat on 24. And the gifted players of Modern Family mimed their way to the funny. Welcome to Top Moments: Bodies in Motion Edition.
