Though the first and second seasons are already available in separate Blu-ray sets, PBS has just released a limited edition set that has both seasons packed into package. Whether you're a newcomer to the series or a die hard fan, it's a great two seasons of TV to have on your shelf.

We're giving away five copies of this limited edition Blu-ray set and to find out how you can win one just keep reading.

After a tragedy at sea claims the life of the presumed heir, Lord Crawley is faced with the possibility that the house he’s loved his whole life might someday belong to a distant cousin he’s never met. But before that can happen he must deal with his scandalous daughter, Lady Mary –considered by many to be the rightful heir to Downton. Even the staff has opinions on the family’s affairs. And while most are devoted to the Crawleys, there are others whose selfishness and scheming do more than simply disrupt the well-oiled inner workings of the estate. As the servants’ mischief escalates, even the most faithful employees begin to imagine a different life.

As the Great War rages across Europe, discord is sown even into the serene Yorkshire countryside. Simmering tensions behind the gates of Downton Abbey are beginning to come to a boil as the men and women of Downton do their part on both the front lines and the home front. What’s more, the brutality and intensity of war seem to inflame more familiar passions – love, loss, blackmail, and betrayal – leaving family and staff alike to struggle in an ever-changing world, against a host of new demons.
