    I had never seen Jeremy Piven before I watched the show but to me (and I'm no authority on acting) he was absolutely horrendous. I'm not generally bothered by acting quality, but I just thought he was completely unbelievable, over the top and made it really hard to watch. I think you're right about it being another joint production - they've maybe realised they're onto a good thing with Downton and are trying to replicate it.

    Agreed. The best episode so far has been the one where

    Spoiler

    . I like Agnes and Frances O'Connor (Mrs. Selfridge) very much, so I watch for them. Plus, the plotlines have been interesting.

    After listening to my mom and sis rave about DA, I finally started getting it on Netflix. Needless to say I'm hooked! I finished Season 1 the other night and am anxiously awaiting the next disc. Totally jealous of all those who have a new episode to watch tonight!

    I love how the servants just wander into the dining room and start talking to the family members. In your dreams, Fellowes.

    ETA: I wish Branson would get over the identity crisis already. It's getting boring.

    (Also, how cute is that baby?? )
