Midway Review: Downton Abbey
My family has been watching Downton Abbey. It is a British show on the BBC. It's a period piece with a sort of Gosford Park quality to it. It focuses almost equally between the "upstairs" life of the family at Downton Abbey and the "downstairs" servants. Both my family and I are enjoying the series. Although it has a fair number of obvious manoeuvrings, it also has a lot of unpredictable twists and turns. Sweet, slightly humorous, and well written. I am only about halfway through the seven-episode series, but I find it to be thoroughly enjoyable.
