I don't get it. I watched the first two episodes of the first series and the first episode of the new series and it just isn't clicking. I constantly feel like I am waiting for something to happen, even though its quite evident that things are happening - between my extreme viewings, a butler has managed to find his way to prison for murder and the estate has lost its fortune on railway stocks. But something just isn't clicking. Despite the broader trend for higher quality television series in recent years, I now find myself with zero must-see-tv. Fortunately, the cinematic features have more than made up the slack, and there are many good films still on the 2012 calendar. Another upside is that the absence of decent tv offerings encourages me to do something a bit more engaging, like reading a book, doing a spot of sport or exercise, or write a general, meandering blog post like this one here.
