    Yeah, I’ve had a couple of spoilers for this show, since it finished in the UK months ago. I just hope nobody dies this time, we had enough deaths last season. I don’t know why 7 pick & choose which shows to fast track. They won’t fast track this show or Revenge, but will fast track others. So much happens in Revenge it is impossible not to get spoilers. I already know who shoots Emily, which is the basis of the mystery for the first half of the show. It’s really frustrating when they won’t fast track the right shows.

  2. S4 DVD has been out since late November. 7 take so long with Downton and let’s not forget that during it’s season I’m sure they will have some announcements like ” Downton will return in two weeks time”.
