After it swept the Emmys, and was the all around highest reviewed thing in a long time, I started watching Downton Abbey. I’m loving it so far.
It’s just SO BRITISH! Oh my, how British it is. The scandals! The quick, dry wit! In the last episode I watched, a woman dared to wear pants. Pants! Incredulous!
It’s on Netflix (which I only discovered after downloading the first few episodes) and, as with most British TV, it’s short (only 7 episodes in the first series). Maggie Smith dominates in every scene she’s in.
Check it out, if that’s your cup of tea. Get it? TEA!?!?! British!
