Sir Chaos, it is Lord Order that you are speaking to, let us not forget our manners. I wouldn't go so far to say it is a "smashing show", but it does bring about a certain diversity to our American screens.Indeed my good sir, that is a rather smashing show. Alright then, good day sir, cheerio!
Then they fell back in to the abyss of boring story lines that were nothing but a history lesson on servant hierarchy.PO
Maggie Smith is the only thing worth to watch it. They also had an interesting story line that they did not follow, a gay story.lol (no doubt after realizing americans are becoming big fans. Yanks are not ready to see two men kissing lol)
They made a 'duke' gay, and he was making out with Thomas-- a handsome foot man servant. A duke? A duke can be immediately eligible to the throne. That is the only scene I ever watched. Maybe they should have me write for them.
Actually, I think the portrayal of butler Carter is accurate of all the performance. Historically, most House master slash butlers, behaved exactly like him. Because he stands top at the hierarchy of the servants, he tends to exaggerate the importance of aristocracy and your place in reference. Everyone wants to feel important, to Carter he needs to be a slave mentally in order to maintain his status. He is genuinely loyal to his master. Its totally a dependent relationship. Thomas and O'Brien are wicked. They are little bizarre couple that need prayers more than anything. O'Brien has the delusions of thinking Thomas gives her attention because one day he will propose to her ugly irish face. And Thomas is a hustler who always is upto something. I am surprised they don't give him more parts. That part has the potential to make the show amazing. Lady Sybil is an idiot. Running away with the house chauffeur? R u serious? I find that offensive and very very anti romantic.
Blimey I couldn't have said it any better. These bloody yankees don't give it some welly about quality telly programme I tell you.Sir Chaos, it is Lord Order that you are speaking to, let us not forget our manners.
