If you liked Upstairs, Downstairs, you will love Downton Abbey. A superb cast, excellent plot development, and wonderful scenery. I think season two is much better and far more intricate than season one. Enough people to love and hate, very poignant and emotional at times. Beautifully crafted and executed. I could not wait for the next episode. Illustrates how much class changes occurred after World War II, and that society would never be the same again, for good or ill. Films like this make me wish they could last for many years to come. It is so much better than what passes for television entertainment now. Why can't we have more quality programming like this all of the time?

How much do I love Downton Abbey? I'm addicted and obessed. While season two is not quite as engaging as season one (there are a couple of plotlines that go nowhere and are rather ridiculous and cringe-worthy)--overall spending time with the Crawleys is a wonderful experience. Lavish sets and costumes, brilliant performances and, forget Matthew and Mary, give me Anna and Mr. Bates! If you have not discovered Downtown--start--NOW. You won't regret it.
