Re: Downton Abbey - Am I Missing Something?

It struck me as a variation on Buddenbrooks. Maggie Smith makes the show watchable, otherwise, it's as exciting as watching paint dry. The tribulations of a bunch of posh tossers really doesn't engage my interest here any more than it did in Buddenbrooks.
