Forever an Anglophile, I have fallen in love with Downton Abbey
, a British television period drama series on PBS. Beginning in 1912, with the sinking of the Titanic, it tells the story of three daughters of an earl who cannot inherit their family's estate, unless through an arranged marriage. But more importantly, it tells the story of the relationships between the Crawley family and their servants, and the era's dynamics between the young and old, the elite and the poor. After all, they believed that there is "nothing worse than a maid serving a duke" and that after marriage
, a woman's "husband will tell her what her opinions are." So why would I want to live in this time? Well, the fashion
is incredible, and I'm enthralled with the importance of family loyalty and inheritance being of the utmost importance. So while a very difficult time to be a woman, a very intriguing one.
It was also the time when cinema was being born, and I think it must have been amazing to see your first moving picture. After all, look at the excitement that The Artist has brought back to movies.
