I’m going to assume you’ve already seen the first two seasons (err… series) of Downtown Abbey, because the thought that you haven’t is just unthinkable. If you’ve only seen the show in its edited PBS form, though, here’s your chance to explore the first two runs of the show (along with the 2011 Christmas Special) and a handful of nifty extras before the third seasons begins its run on this side of the Pond (or, if you can wait a little longer, makes its Blu-ray debut uncut here in the Colonies).
Today only, Amazon has the Downton Abbey Seasons 1 & 2 Limited Edition Set – Original UK Version Set on Blu-ray for an amazing $25.99. That’s 60% off the list price for the five-disc set (or, if you want to save two more bucks, you can pick it up on DVD for $23.99).
The set includes:
Season 1 Bonus Features:
– “Making of Downton Abbey – A House in History”
– “Great British Heritage Pass, a promotional spot for British tourism.”
Season 2 Bonus Features:
– Downton Abbey Christmas Special (full episode)
