This show is great. I always think it's going to be slow and boring, but then I get swept up in the Downton mythos. Last night, I ended up rooting for the wrong new character. I thought I was going to LOVE Nanny West because of her shade abilities. Then she showed her true colors. She was a blast while she was there, though.
