Once again I have to stress that the editing and writing for this series is brilliantly done (bravo, Julian Fellowes!). The way script and scenes cut back and forth between the Crawleys and their servants is seamlessly, resulting in a fast-paced, thoroughly engaging viewing experience. It drives home like no other movie I can think of at the moment the intricate balance and connection between wealthy families and the servants who make their lifestyle possible. The entailment issue that throws the Crawley family into turmoil does not exist in some sort of aristocratic vacuum. Anything that impacts the Crawleys matters deeply, to some degree or another, to each member of their household - and the servants are not shy about taking sides or forming their own alliances. The result is riveting television. I cannot WAIT for Part Two this weekend!
