So I guess we can all agree, both liberals and conservatives, that Downton Abbey is great. Some watch/discuss with liberals and some with conservatives but we both love it. It's odd that the author of this piece wants to use it to divide people.

The first thing to do is to admit that I’m a Downton Abbey fan. In fact, I’ve watched every episode twice. But in my defense, I counterbalance my Downtonviewings with at least one hour spent with my chainsaw for every hour tuned into Masterpiece Classic.

One of the first things one notices, if one is a regular viewer of BBC productions, is that Downton is unusually ideologically and religiously balanced. One of the other effects one notices when one watches a lot of BBC is that one starts referring to oneself in the third rather than the first person....
