downton withdrawal.

are you feeling the loss of downton abbey, which doesn't begin airing again until '13 in America?

watch secrets of the manor house online - it's a pbs documentary on the whole upstairs-downstairs thing, which i find fascinating. it talks about the reality of the servants working in english manor houses, which helps give context to downton and other shows like it. i even understand "the entail" a little better now, as well as the political subtext on the show.

watch now.

and while you're waiting for downton to return, go rent these great movies: gosford park, remains of the day, age of innocence, and mansfield park.
