Don't tell my wife, but I'm getting her season 1 on DVD for Valentine's Day. I figure I should watch from the beginning. My wife just started with some summary show after season 2, and is hooked.
If you love Merchant Ivory films, then absolutely you should try it. If Merchant Ivory made a TV series, it would be Downton Abbey.
It's melodramatic fun, the casting is imaginative (they go more for characters than pretty people) and there are some great storylines. Not precisely plausible in some aspects (my UK cousins groan over it a lot) but still quite entertaining.
I'm surprised, but pleased, that my Dh watches with me.You do have to start from the beginning, though. I know at least the first season, if not seasons one and two, are on Netflix. Then you can catch up on Season Three on PBS.org
