I know at least one person out there who’s trying to make her way through “Downton” Abbey before the new season starts in less than a month (and I know her because she’s got my DVDs). For those struggling to find the time to catch up (as if you’ve got something more important to do), or for those just wanting a taste to enliven our waiting, here’s a very jolly five-minute recap of Seasons One and Two. Can. Not. Wait.
(And yes, I know I could watch it online anytime. But then I’d have to keep quiet about it, for all the people waiting until January and, well, it’s just easier to wait.)
