Downton Abbey

Being a huge fan of anything British, it was no surprise that when I discovered Downton Abbey I was hooked. I burned through all seven episodes on Netflix in two days, and am glad to hear that the next season is being filmed right now. This show far surpasses anything on television (yes, even Mad Men!) with quality of writing and production. Even if you are usually bored by the whole "upstairs downstairs" genre, this series will alter your opinion. Please check it out, and if you already love it let me know. If I had the ability to time travel, with money being no object, 1912-era upper-crusty Britain would be my first destination, either upstairs or down.
