Better Than Upstairs Downstairs
3 August 2003 | by (Shawangunk, N.Y.) – See all my reviews

To a veteran Masterpiece Theatre viewer the caption borders on heresy but I'm afraid its true. I really can't improve on the comments the other reviewers have offered. If you have seen Upstairs Downstairs and liked it, then you owe it to yourself to see this series.

I taped my copy ten years ago from Bravo's 'BBC Showcase'. It is formatted as a series of distinct one-hour episodes as opposed to 'blending' three episodes into one. Without having seen the 'blended' versions, I would think that having the episodes presented seperately is better if for no other reason than that is the way we all saw them originally back in the old days. Let's face it, nostalgia has a part to play in all of this. While I am on the subject of nostalgia, when those who have the rights to this series get around to producing a DVD, it would be good if they could find a way to include Alistair Cooke's appearances as well.
