Netflix Recommendation: Downton Abbey Season 1

February 20, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

If you’re a fan of Gosford Park, you’ll love this show. Granted, I’m a latecomer to the party, but better late than never, yeah?

It’s set in the early 1900s, during a time in England where the aristocrats still employed household employees to manage their sprawling estates. The workers have as much drama to deal with as their employers, and it’s all very scandalous for the time. An example: An unmarried woman could not even share a sandwich with an unmarried man without it looking “inappropriate”. My, how things have changed šŸ˜›

Season 1 is on Netflix. Season 2 can be seen on PBS’s site. AND, glory of all glories, PBS has an app for the iPhone and iPad since we can’t use Flash to view videos. I’m in heaven šŸ˜€
