Everyone in my family, in my workspace and my friends are watching: Downton Abbey. I finally caved and watched season one AND season two in the last ten days. It is a nice break from my husband’s favorite channel, the History Channel (I call it the “war channel.”) And a nice break from the grey grey skies of the Pacific Northwest.
What is it about Masterpiece Theatre’s hit from across the pond?
Treat yourself, travel back in time to the early twentieth century and visit Downton.
