Downton Abbey is a really nice show to watch if you want quality British drama. Looking at a number of talented actors, I don't need to say that the acting is amazing. It's also very well filmed, and even though it is a drama, it's still realistic and historically accurate, it's not over the top which I really appreciated. The characters are real, grounded, and the show is funny and heart warming. I just had a blast watching the show!

Was "Downton Abbey" a good show? Not really. Especially as it progressed, it was all cliched characters and, frankly, pretty dumb writing. And yet, it was incredibly watchable. And GIFable. I don't think I'll ever rewatch an episode, but I could stare at Maggie Smith GIFs for hours.
