“Mr. Selfridge” enters its third season, as Jeremy Piven continues to impress the hell out of me. The season starts off sad, as Selfridge’s love Rose has died. His daughters are getting married and an old rival is gaining power. What’s this American in England supposed to do? Leave it to Selfridge to find an answer.
The show is a nostalgic romantic fantasy, but we need one. While people love “Downton Abbey” for its costume drama elegance, why does such a sweet show get ignored? Well, it misses the usual airing cycles that keeps attention on shows like “Downton Abbey” and “Sherlock”. We’re training people to watch PBS for quality entertainment again, but schedules a bitch to line up.
The Blu-Ray comes with a featurette as the sole special feature. The A/V Quality is quite stunning for a recent PBS release. The 1080p transfer pops for a WWI era drama. The DTS-HD 2.0 master audio track is dialogue supportive. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase.
