The Best of 2012: Television (British)

One of the many items [old and new] enjoyed by Burbank Public Library staff during 2012, recommended for your consideration:

My husband Paul and I very much enjoyed watching the BBC's Downton Abbey, seasons 1 and 2. We can't wait for season 3 to come out on DVD. (We usually don't watch TV.) I have shared with many others, and everyone loves this show. We now own Seasons 1 and 2, of course!

The description from the library catalog: Set in an Edwardian country house in 1912, Downton Abbey portrays the lives of the Crawley family and the servants who work for them. In the drawing rooms, library, and beautiful bedrooms, with their tall windows looking across the park, lives the family, but below stairs are other residents, the servants, as fiercely possessive of their ranks as anyone above.

Seasons greetings,
Chris P., Circulation Clerk
