My "love" for Downton Abbey stems from why I usually like a TV show: I like the characters (well a few kind of "love to hate," lol). And the setting doesn't hurt either; real-life Highclere Castle is pretty amazing, and its history is rather interesting. I'm not wishing for the return of such class distinctive life, but watching a show about it is pretty entertaining! (Well except for a certain moment .... won't say more just yet.) And yay Maggie Smith, usually, ha.
