Brilliant show from PBS Masterpiece theater. I don’t love the show because I yearn for the kind of grand life depicted on the show, I love it because it has a great story plot, great characters and superb acting. Some people call it a soap opera or think it overly sentimental. I don’t think there is anything soap opera like about it, soap operas often lack strong characters and good acting. I’ll greatly miss this show, I can’t believe it will be over this year.
