Set in the fictional Downton Abbey, stately home of the Earl of Grantham, early in the reign of King George V, during the two years prior to the Great War and commencing with news of the sinking of the Titanic, an event that triggers much of the storyline. It follows the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants.
This list will not make me popular, but it's the truth. These are TV shows everyone is buzzing about, but for some reason, I (and my husband) just can't get into them. We've tried at least 2 episodes of each of these series before deciding to stop tracking. Is it the storyline? The acting? The popularity? We loved Dexter and Breaking Bad so why don't we like to watch these?
