My new time killer, a WWI era drama show. I’m not really certain why these British shows interest me. Maybe the larger than life characters who spend time drinking expensive wine and women who try to flirt without showing skin are couple of reasons. The bottom line is that after Doc Martin it was hard to find something interesting to watch. If you are looking for characters with money and integrity this show is full of them. That is definitely something that you don’t find in shows these days which thrive on non intelligent humor and racial sarcasm. Downton Abbey engages you in a moral battle in simple yet less than ordinary plots involving not a single character you can associate with but instead you end up empathizing with all of them whole heartedly.
