Downtown Abbey S5 — Lord Grantham STILL an Idiot

The Crowleys survived the Great War and the Spanish flu, but season five opens with a much bigger threat. This time, marrying a wealthy American half-Jewess or your poor relation cousin who is the actual heir won’t be enough to save Downton. It’s 1924, and omigod–THERE’S A LABOUR GOVERNMENT. The peasants are revolting! They are also leaving “service” for jobs that pay actual wages and have set hours. Lord Grantham is expecting a siege at any moment from people “devoted to the destruction of people like us and everything we stand for.”

To see the rest of this exciting, hysterical and hell yeah SNARKY recap of a show you probably saw months ago because of the intertubes please go over to Happy Nice People Time because they will give me money for writing and you won’t. Then come back here and look at more of my stuff, or better yet, just go here and buy this book which I wrote under a pen name because it’s SO GOOD I was embarrassed by my own unworthiness.)
