I have to say that Downton Abbey has become one of my new favorite TV shows. This PBS Masterpiece Theater show is rich is historical drama and witty humor. Maggie Smith as the Dowager Countess brings wit and humor to the screen with her old fashion views and unflattering comments. It follows the storylines of both the servants and the Crawley family of Downton Abbey. The beautiful depictions of English country life pre-WWI and the changing time period in both technology and woman's rights are done so well that it feels like you're there back in time with them. I recommend this to any Jane Austen fans and those who love period dramas. Not to mention I enjoy seeing all of the costumes for the time period.
