Downton Abbey

We have to decide if we want to watch the new season which continues to be as addictive to its fans as smack. We were hooked in the beginning but stopped watching after three seasons  when the piety of Bates the saint became intolerable. “Just kill him,” someone wrote on the internet. Our way of agreeing to that was to stop watching. Has there ever been a character outside of Dickens more easy to hate? But the fanfare around the new season is weakening resolve. If you are a fan of British acting, which is light years ahead of our native thespians, subscribe to Acorn. It costs us three bucks a month.
