My Latest Obsession: Upstairs Downstairs

Image via PBS
I am dying for the new Downton Abbey season to start and meanwhile, I have become hooked on Upstairs Downstairs.  It's very similar to Downton Abbey; however, it takes place in 1936 and deals with serious issues like fascism in Europe, death, dark family secrets, and of course, the whole drama that involves family and staff in a wealthy household.

It's definitely filling my Downtown Abbey void and season two of Upstairs Downstairs just started this past Sunday. If you've never watched this show, you can check it out through the PBS website.  Season one is on the website this month and there's only three episodes, so it won't take long to get caught up.  

Sadly, I hear season two is the last and final season.  I've heard many fans critiquing season two's unbelievable story lines, but nonetheless, Upstairs Downstairs has definitely kept me entertained and I'm a fan!

Have you ever watched Upstairs Downstairs? In my opinion, it isn't as good as Downton Abbey, but I'm definitely fascinated by it and the time period. Are you a fan? Let me know your thoughts.

  1. I have never seen the original series (which helped inspire Downton Abbey) but I have seen season one of the new series and thought it was good (but not as good as Downton Abbey). I'll likely watch season two when it is out on DVD. I'll definitely be purchasing it for my library.

  6. Sounds like an great show (dark family secrets? I'm in)! I just wish I had the time to watch another TV show, I barely manage keeping up with only a couple because of my schedule. I'll try to check it out though. Thanks for the link! :)

  7. Ah...Upstairs, Downstairs. Good times, no?
    You should probably check out the older Upstairs, Downstairs because as someone mentioned above, it did have a lot of inspirations for Downton Abbey and in my totally biased opinion is a wee bit better then the newer version.
