Downton Abbey is about an aristocratic family in England and their house staff. I may love the house staff more because they are more relatable to me, but it's all so good.
I watched all of season 1 on Netflix between Wednesday and Sunday. I finished in time for the season 2 premiere Sunday night.
I had heard many good things about this show and finally decided to give it a try, and I was immediately hooked. It's totally riveting, with good story and good characters, those you love, and love to hate. Even Brady, who only watched an hour of season 1 with me and the season 2 premiere, said it was a good show, and "not boring".
I highly recommend it.
