I’m a new and complete convert, possibly relating to obsessive tendencies, to Downton Abbey, the fabulously produced Masterpiece Theatre hit. I watched Season 1 in its entirety in one sitting, fascinated from the first scene and amazed at how quickly the Abbey’s family, Grantham, the Dowager, Mary, Mr. Bates and Mrs. O’Brien, to name a few, became part of my vocabulary. Twenty or so, fleshed out characters, with skeletons and futures and hopes and faults. I’m equally fascinated with the setting and time period. What Cora and her daughters wear to entertain and for everyday and how the British aristocracy lived and what was important to them.

In contrast, let’s turn our attentions to Jersey Shore. There’s JWOWW aptly named for what men holler out when she walks into a bar. Described as ‘impulsive and spontaneous , a party girl with zero self control.’ Could this be Mary of Downton Abbey? Is Ronnie the stateside version of Thomas the scheming, footman? And certainly a fashion maven like Snooki would not be outdone by Edith or Sybil.
