Downton Abbey

Thanks to the extra push by Courtney, I finally watched the first episode of Downton Abbey which completely trumps the Super Bowl.  How did it take me this long?  This show is fantastic.  I love how dastardly some of the servants are and how likable many of the family members are.  Totally wasn’t expecting to despise (yet be completely obsessed with) many among the ‘sympathetic’ lower classes.  The secrets, the scandals, the inheritances gone awry!!!  And to have some wonderful twisty moments in the very first episode is impressive – I didn’t realize how invested I was until shit hit the fan and I noticed myself gasping out loud.  Plus, the cinematography is gorgeous, the writing is way above the bar, and the acting is on point.  Go watch this show!!!
