You know how people are beginning to say to you 'Oh, well, if you like "Downton Abbey" you simply must...' and then they finish that sentence giving you an idea you just hate?  Well, try this one on for size -- if you like "Downton Abbey" you simply must try "Upstairs Downstairs."  No, the new series may not be as good as the original, but the original is an antecedent of "Downton Abbey" and an entire style of drama (or, at the very least it popularized a style).  So, give it a shot tonight, it has British people and some of them are rich and others are the servants.  See?  Just like "Downton."  They're even both on PBS.
