Down On Downton: Why The Left Is Torching Downton Abbey

My husband chops down trees and loves Downton Abbey. It is good cinema, anyway you slice it. I wish people would quit with the noise about cultural and economic differences. It takes the fun out of everything.

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....
