Downton Returns to North America Day. Excuse me while I wash my hair and brew the tea.
Even though I love the show, I'm not sure how I will like the new season. I expect this first episode to be a little grim for a stretch. Have tried to stay spoiler-free but have learned a few plot points, one of which I cheer (on tonight's show), one of which I jeer (coming in a few episodes). We'll see how well the (many!) new actors can fill the gaps of departed characters and story lines. And be alert for story lines that are not integral but sensational.
