Have you been watching Downton Abbey? I'm a little late to it (it aired in the UK last fall and the first season already aired on PBS in the US) but I finally gave in to the hype and watched the first three episodes this weekend.
Oh. My. Word! So, so good. It's set in the early 20th century at the ginormous country home of the Crawley family and mixes historical events (the Titanic sinks in the first episode) with the day to day life of an aristocratic family and their servants. I've always loved a good British period drama, and this one is heavy on the drama. Plus: killer costumes and sets.
Really, if you haven't watched it yet, hop to it! You can stream it online via Netflix or Amazon in the US. Hurry, new episodes start in January!
