My favorite show is DOWNTON ABBEY. It has taken Masterpiece Theater by storm. Maggie Smith plays Violet Crawley, Countess of Grantham and she is superb. I don't know how I missed the first two seasons but when I discovered the series I watched season 1 and 2 on Hulu and then starting watching the current season on PBS.
People are copying the costumes in everyday life and this is set in the 1920's.
They now have a cookbook "Edwardian Cooking-80 recepies inspired by Downton Abbey's Elegant Meals" by Larry Edwards. I'm ordering it for a friend for Mothers Day.
This past week I heard a news reporter announce which character she was from the show.
Today I found a quiz @http://www.weta.org/tv/picks/downtonabbey/quiz to find out which character you are!!!!
Well, I turned out to be Robert, Earl of Grantham.
Catch the show on PBS on Sunday night if you like period shows with lots of drama!!
