    KILLS me to wait for this on Netflix. And Downton Abbey.

      I've heard a bit about it-- not seen it though; not really had much of an opportunity. I've certainly liked other things Maggie Smith has been in. But I still wonder if it's my kind of show-- whatever that means with my rather broad, perhaps not very picky, taste in entertainment.

      Rumor has it that the second season didn't live up to the promise of the first. Heh, I think most of what I've learned about the show I've gleaned from watching The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson-- which I resort to watching from sneaky YouTube because CBS can't quite figure out international copyright law or something like The Comedy Channel and MSNBC have.

        can't say I'm a great fan.  It just doesn't ring true.  They way they treat their servants is all wrong, the way the servants speak to the butler - and each other - is all wrong.

        Maggie Smith is good.  She reminds me of my great-grandmother who had that same biting, even mean, sense of humor.

        Perhaps I am just too picky.  But I adored Upstairs, Downstairs (the 1971 version, not the latest one) and re-watch it every chance I get.  I was terribly upset when James committed suicide. :(
