Upstairs Downstairs, Series 2

Post by princess garnet » Tue October 9th, 2012, 10:58 pm

Anyone watch the start of season 2 of "Upstairs Downstairs" on Sunday night? With that, the new season of "Masterpiece Classic" has started here in the US too.
New faces are at 165 Eaton Place as well as the return of last season's cast.

This must only be airing in the U.S. I had no idea there was a brand new Upstairs Downstairs series with a new cast! I hope it's out on DVD. Was series 1 any good?

I've watched both series 1 and 2 and enjoyed them. A little more serious than Downton Abbey I would say. They don't have a Maggie Smith! :D

Enjoy it while it lasts as it was cancelled after the second series! I enjoyed the first series but thought the second one was boring and gave up on it. I loved the original series.

I'm with Madeleine today's version can't compete with the original. I have DVD's of the original and prefer to watch that than the latest version.
