I watched the first season of Downton Abbey.  I thought it was quite fabulous.  My main objection was the cliffhanger ending, but that should be resolved in the next installment.  I hope.

Downton Abbey is a historical drama, set in England from 1912 and on.  The cliffhanger ending is the announcement of war.  This is not a spoiler for anyone who knows a modicum of history.

The acting is good, the characters are interesting, and the scenery is quite lovely.  It’s worth checking out, that’s for sure.
