New Additction

I knew there was a cult following of Downton Abbey so presumed it was good. It premiered in the UK fall of 2010 and in the US early 2011. I finally decided to invest some time and used Sassy's Netflix account to watch the first episode. I am now officially addicted and on episode five. It's fantastic - the story, costumes, ensemble cast, everything! As usual, Maggie Smith is extraordinary. The story starts in 1912 with news of the Titanic sinking critical to the plot. I love how the lives of aristocats and servants are juxtaposed. I'm late to the party as usual, but definitely a follower.
