This is a mini-series airing on PBS. I just started watching and I'm hooked. The cast is terrific; the plots within plots are intriguing; and the settings are just beautiful. Anyone else watching this one? http://www.suite101.com/content/downton-abbey-new-itv-period...

P.S. Maggie Smith is deliciously sharp!

I don't remember much of that show, but I think the comparison is valid since the story revolves around the aristocracy (upper class) and the household help (lower class). It's difficult to say which one has the worst schemers. Rolling my eyes.

Upstairs Downstairs was a BBC Masterpiece i think from the 70's
