Sarah and I thought the first episode was a snoozer but things picked up in Episode 2 . . . though perhaps not the way we would have liked. Oh, and by the way . . . our last episode was incomplete. Sarah and I cheated and watched the British episodes of Downton Abbey when they aired, and the American premiere was actually two episodes combined together. So the second half of the show was not included in our “premiere” recap, but can be watched here.
