Written and produced with impeccable taste, and the winner of an armful of Emmy awards...it seems sad that America has nearly forgotten that it fell in love with UPSTAIRS DOWNSTAIRS when it aired on PBS...Co-creator Jean Marsh heads a cast of stellar British actors in telling the nearly thirty year saga of an English family above and below stairs...If you have not met Rose, Sarah, Mr. Hudson or Mrs. Bridges, you have missed one of the most remarkable shows ever aired on television...this is not to be missed.

40 years ago I watched Upstairs Downstairs and finally was able to purchase the series. Yes it has stood the test of time, it is as magnificent as it was 40 years ago. Mr. Hudson the butler, played by the late Gordon Jackson is still the best butler ever and staunch Scottish person. Mrs. Bridges the cook was played beautifully by Angela Baddeley who passed away while the series was running in the United States. Rose the head parlor maid played by Jean Marsh, also one of the series' creator, is still with us and her character is still strong. Upstairs people are just as strong in their performances: David Langton as Richard Bellamy; Rachel Gurney as Lady Marjorie Southwold Bellamy; Simon Williams as James Bellamy son and heir; Nicola Pagett as daughter Elizabeth Bellamy the rebel. All have done a wonderful job of bringing the Edwardian era to our shores, along with a little history. The series times period runs from 1901 thru 1930. From King Edward thru the sinking of the Titanic, the First World War and the roaring twenties. I gave the series to a cousin to watch as she never watched the series and she is watching it every day and enjoying it. She sees the strength in each character and the actor portraying the part. If you have never seen this series try it you will like it.

An excellent, well-acted, well-written, series that keeps you interested in the characters and their fates, while providing an wonderfully entertaining and accurate overview of times in which they live.

This British series was an international hit -- in the US and on the continent -- when it was originally shown and would have the same response if shown again today.

This series is as wonderful now as it was in the '70's! How class distinctions have changed over the course of time. It also seems that many of the issues of rasing children today are not much different from that time period. This is particular to miss Elizabeth & Ms. Georgina. As the years pass, you get a glimpse of how tragedies such as the Titanic sinking and WWI affect this family & their servants. This is history & entertainment at it's best.
