Yesterday, I blogged about excessive violence from Hollywood and its influence, along with a host of other contributors, to our extremely violent society. If you would like to watch the complete antithesis of violence on TV and be thoroughly entertained by exceptional acting, amazing costumes and beautiful scenery, then watch Downton Abbey, a Masterpiece Theater contribution from England on PBS. The series is in Season 3 here in the US, but I am told it is Season 5 in England. Rent or buy Seasons 1 and 2and the first three episodes of Season 3. Start at the beginning with episode one of Season 1; it will help immensely. I have been thoroughly entertained so far with the aristocracy upstairs and the extremely enjoyable story lines, personalities and antics of the servants downstairs. Downton Abbey is on PBS every Sunday at 9 PM. The previous week's episode then is shown on Sunday at 8 PM. Season 1 is a little slow in starting but it picks up pretty quickly. Enjoy!
