The Beav and I watched the first season over a long week and liked it a lot. It helps that the villains are so incredibly mean-spirited and that the Dowager Countess is so funny. But at root, it’s the appeal of watching a poor middle-class sap learning how to live like nobility in a castle while the family bumbles around trying to marry off a spoiled brat of a daughter who suddenly has no money. Good stuff.
