I loved the Downton Abbey series! The sets and costumes were amazing! I would love to see this exhibit!

Folks, I will be honest with you, I cannot for the life of me get it how people confuse art with life. The swooning over Downton Abbey series went to such extent that it seems all we want is to go back to that. Are you nuts? This was a time when English working class was addressed as “the great unwashed” and that was a big part of how this country was founded. They bought a ticket and sailed across the big blue ocean for a better, repeat, better life! Yes, those were your great-great-great grandmothers who scrubbed floors and cooked meals. And your great-great-great grandfathers who served as valets and footmen. If you think any differently, guess what, descendants of Lady Mary are still tending to their horses and gardens in the Old Country. No one of us has anything to do with any of that. I don’t get it what the fuss is all about! Aren’t you happy we have left all that behind?

The worst thing to me about this show is the story lines. I think they got the ideas out of a book called “Soap Opera Plots for Dummies.” It was super soapy/sappy.
