Still, after watching a couple episodes (I'll write them up in a later post) I know why Downton Abby is so darn popular. That and I read this article a friend sent me from the BBC on The US Cult of Downton Abby.
- Nothing's changed in terms of mannerism or social interaction since the ever-popular Regency period.
- The drama is as real today as it was 100 years ago as it was 200 years ago. Let's face it, human interaction is always fascenating especially if done right and Downton Abby does it right!
- The clothes are gorgeous and worn very well. Not everyone can pull off period dress!
More when I start writing up my thoughts on this series.
