INTRODUCING the latest soon-to-be beloved characters to grace the halls of Downton Abbey…
Lady Bridgee of Bladder Wrack and her lady’s maid, MissTitmouse. Where did they come from? Why do they lookalike? Why does Lady Bridgee insist on drinking out of the finger bowl? What will O’Brien and Thomas do to make Miss Titmouse look stupid? Why is Matthew Crawley such a sap? Why did he give all that money to keep stupid big Downton Abbey open? Mary isnot that alluring, is she? She’s kind of scrawny. That other house was just fine. Why couldn’t poor Edith just marry the old dude? Should she run off to Italy and shack up with some swarthy lothario? It’s time for some bad behavior from that girl. Nobody has done anything bad since Mary murdered by sexual encounter the good-looking dude in the first episode. Helllllllloooooooo! We need something exciting to happen!!! We’re losing interest over here!!!! Let Bates out of jail and have him run off with Mrs. Hughes. That psuedo cancer thing was really stupid. And what about Violet? She used to say hilarious stuff at every opportunity…now she’s paying the way for the Irish to come to England. That’s just crazytalk…and not in a good way. It’s time for Daisy to have a wild S & M affair with Lord Crawley or perhaps Mr. Carson. Luckily there is another war coming in a few years. That ought to help with the drama a little bit. Someone needs to become a flapper. It is the 20s,isn’t it?  Time to pump it up, Julian!
