For those of you in the UK that have been following Downton Abbey verses those of you trying to learn more about what is going on with Downton Abbey, it seems that the storyline and the twists that go with it are setting peoples hearts on fire (and not in a good way).

Julian Fellowes, the creator to Downton Abbey has defended his stances in a very heated development. Recently, after Sundays episodes, 60 complaints were received by the network shocked over the apparent rape of Anna May Bates (Joanne Froggatt) on the show.

There was outrage over the thought that something exciting or shock worthy would effect the show that much. What people don’t realize is that real life situations do occur and things don’t work out merry for people. People cannot hide behind a veil in a world where things like this don’t happen.

Although as I have stated on this blog that I am not a watcher of this show. This has intrigued me and set a fire burning within my chest to start watching this show. I don’t care if I piss people off. As a mini psychologist or at least like to call myself one. It’s important to travel down the roads that most people never want to travel. It’s important to learn and experience the emotional feeling about situations that do occur in real life. So I commend the creator in this respect for taking a chance.

People should look at this shoe with respect and the intentions behind “why” the showing of the rape is important. There is nothing good about a rape unless the assailant is stabbed profusely during it and the victim is victorious in getting her revenge. But we can’t hide behind curtains. So I think people, especially the older viewers should look at this as a learning experience.
