PBS has made the first season of Downton Abbey available on the web (their own site, not Hulu) until the end of the month. We watched the first ep tonight, and I am in awe on the writing.

Hypothetically historical, incredible costumes, watch with kids only if wiilling to explain Victorian era anti-sodomy law.

You had me at sodomy.

I've been hearing a lot of people talking about this show lately. It's definitely going into my Netflix queue of things to entertain me when the semester ends and I have nothing to do but gestate for the following two months.

Just watched the first two episodes. Now I'm going to have to watch them again with B. so I can get her hooked.

So how is it as calming (but enjoyable and entertaining) bedtime watching? I've been using B5 for this, since Chris is out of town most of this month, and am realizing that part of my problem is probably that second season, with its pervasive foreshadowing of Big Scary Things Coming, is really not setting a good mood for sleep.

I think it'd work pretty well. The biggest, scariest thing to happen in this show so far happens before the start of the first episode.
