Have you ever watched a show and thought everything was perfect…the actors and actresses chosen for the roles, the characters, the story, the period, the cinematography, the locations, the costumes…everything?  That’s the way I feel about Downton AbbeyDownton Abbey is a British television period drama that aired in the US on PBS Masterpiece Classic.  The series is set on the fictional estate of Downton Abbey in North Yorkshire and begins with news of the sinking of the RMS Titanic.  Downton Abbey is the home of the Earl and Countess of Grantham and their three daughters.  Season One covers the years 1912-1914 and Season Two covers the years 1916-1919.  Downton Abbey beautifully captures the transition between the 19th and 20th centuries.  If you love Masterpiece Theatre-ish things, I encourage you to checkout Downton Abbey.

History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days.
