ABC News Shared: Julian Fellowes delivers must-see TV with an Americanized spin on his beloved “Downton Abbey’ and creates a feast for the eyes and ears. Is it more playful than profound, more froth than substance? Maybe. It’s also perfectly irresistible.
An Audience Member Shared: I watched until almost the end of the first episode and will go no further. It is tedious. I generally like period dramas – I loved Downton Abbey so I had high expectations.
