Upstairs Downstairs

If you are missing  Downton Abbey, you will love  Upstairs Downstairs currently playing on PBS's Masterpiece Theater. Laura Linney returns to introduce the series.  All the drama and eccentricity one can take are here for the watching. One observational note: Lady Maud, if your monkey, Solomon must sit on the table while drinking sweet tea and munching chutney, he needs to wear pants.

I recorded Sunday night's first episode and will watch it one night this week when nothing else is on...can't wait! I loved the first series 40 years ago.

Hi Rosemary, I did not watch the originals back in the 70's as my interests were elsewhere. However, I really enjoyed Sunday's first episode...runs parallel to DA, for sure. Hope you enjoy as well!

I was so excited to hear this was coming to PBS. I was born in Scotland and remember watching the original with my mum. The first episode did not disapont.
