When last we left Downton Abbey, the Crawley family was teaming up to rescue the Prince of Wales from a royal scandal, while Paul Giamatti was making his first appearance as Cara's boorish brother.

Now, The Hollywood Reporter has a first glimpse at the set of the British drama's upcoming fifth season, currently shooting at England's Highclere Castle.

From the looks of it, the British drama is about to enter its P.G. Wodehouse years, with the ornate finery of the pre-war era giving way to a more casual definition of elegance. (That means tweed. Lots and lots of tweed.)

Game of Thrones's Red Wedding & More TV Nuptials Gone Bad

Originally posted 04/11/2014 05:15PM

Ready yourself, Game of Thrones fans. It's wedding season again in Westeros. Soon Margaery Tyrell will walk down the aisle to join GoT's top twerp, King Joffrey, in holy matrimony.

The HBO show's last set of nuptials, better known as the Red Wedding, cut through the heart like a hot blade of Valyrian steel, leaving many wary about what will happen when Joffrey gets hitched. (No spoilers, book readers!)

Weddings are said to be joyous occasions, but TV doesn't always follow the rules. In preparation for Game of Thrones' next "celebration," here are the TV weddings that went horribly wrong.

Good Luck, Good Wife: 13 TV Shows That Survived Killing off Major Characters

Originally posted 03/24/2014 12:00PM

Killing off a main character in a television show is a risky move: You're upending the show's world (and putting a coworker out of a job) in the hope that the shake-up will lead to something greater down the line. And guess what? Despite the ministrations of fans, who claim that they will never watch their favorite show without [insert character name here], it often works!

Below, 13 shows that did the same thing The Good Wife did Sunday night, and not only survived, but thrived.

Downton Abbey Finale: A Reassuring Ending for a Turbulent Season

Originally posted 02/24/2014 05:30AM

Sunday's Downton Abbey on PBS Masterpiece brought a nice, gentle close to a difficult, unsatisfactory season. At the end we got to see Mr. Carson and Mrs. Hughes on a rare day off, at the English seaside, wading into the water and holding hands like two children afraid of being carried off by a wave.

This may even have hinted at a growing, sunset intimacy between the two. Given all the misalliances on Downton, what could be better than the prospect of a romance between the two characters with the best hearts?

Considering last season's brutal finale and the sometimes ridiculous swings of the show's plot, this could very well mean that Carson winds up like poor Mr. Pamuk, smuggled out of a bedroom wrapped in a sheet. Not yet, anyway.

Downton Abbey Recap: 7 Simple Truths About That Silly, Shocking House Party

Originally posted 01/13/2014 11:45AM

While you were watching the Golden Globes, Downton Abbey was having a house party – a regal, riotous, weekend-long marathon of poker games, opera performances, formal dinners, and shocking revelations sure to reshape the remainder of the season.

Seven key takeaways from last night's gala event (warning, spoilers ahead):

1. Sullen Lady Mary Has a New Suitor. When an old family friend, Lord Gillingham (Tom Cullen), attends the party, the sullen Lady Mary finds herself possibly, maybe having a tiny bit of fun. On a horse ride, the two bond over the burdens of death and taxes. While Gillingham is technically engaged to a woman chosen for him by his parents, he seems rather smitten with Mary, even after she runs away in tears after realizing she was dancing to music played on a gramophone that belonged to her beloved Matthew.

Is there life after Downton? Jessica Brown Findlay has certainly made it work and things are looking up for Dan Stevens, but a new Funny Or Die parody proves that moving on might be a bit more difficult for Michelle Dockery.

In the fake trailer for the made-up TNT drama "Tough Justice," Dockery stars as a no-nonsense cop alongside The Shield's Michael Chiklis. Or at least, she does up until the moment that her Downton breeding kicks in, and her badass policewoman transforms into a genteel Edwardian widow. Come for the elbow slams, stay for the parasols.
