What a hokey soap. It's an upper class Coronation street. I dragged out watching until the end of the 2nd season, which took me six weeks to do it and it amazes me the English obsession with class, The goody two shoes earl, etc., etc., etc.,

Well thanks for that important update. I'd also suggest that Americans (if that is where you are in fact from?) are just as obsessed with class and social status as the English, with the added factor of heritage thrown into the mix. Downton is more successful "across the pond", afterall. Enjoy the guilty pleasure.
