If you like the period dramas that were the fare of Masterpiece Theater in its early days, you will love Downton Abbey, presented on Masterpiece Classic. It is a richly produced story, focused on the upstairs and downstairs life at said Abbey in 1912, just prior to the outbreak of WW I. Season 1 is now available via Netflix streaming (Netflix link). You won’t regret watching.
