Downton Abbey – How I Will Miss You

The season finale may have aired in Britain, but Downton Abbey offers a reprieve for its American fans by airing the 2011 Christmas Day special as the last season episode tonight on the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS).   Robert Bianco notes in ‘Downton Abbey’ Provides a Satisfying Sendoff  for USA Today that…

“We’ve grown accustomed to finding a weekly safe harbor where civility is still a goal, formality is not a crime, and even the worst behavior is cloaked in good manners…”

And a few more deliciously witty quips from Maggie Smith: “You’ll find there’s never a dull moment in this house…” before the family drama takes a sabbatical.
