Every man and his dog has been recommending Downton Abbey to Rachel, so finally she caved and borrowed the first season on DVD from a friend. And what a surprise! What a delight! The show is a costume drama set before and during World War I, but unlike many period dramas Rachel has seen, this one is laugh-out-loud funny. It’s not slapstick, but the witty script had Rachel chuckling along as she fell in love with the characters.
Downton Abbey is no longer showing on television, but it can be picked up on DVD for a reasonable price. The third season is set to come out in September.
