    no americans did not think this was a documentary… it was shown on a public broadcast channel which normally showed documentaries, but we werent that dense.

    I loved this series and the writers had a way of allowing the viewing audience to be a part of this family. British writers are excellent. The production values are the best. Watching the program, I never understood the class system in Great Britain. I have a better understanding now since watching this program. great period piece

    My favorite show, (have it on VHS and DVD) but there were a couple episodic clunkers along the way. I guess it makes you appreciate the others all the more.
