That thing when you’ve had a long couple of days and you’re like, “I don’t know what I’m in the mood to watch, but I must watch something,” and then you realize Downton Abbey Season 4 Episode 1 is a thing that can be watched.

Hoping to prove that neither England nor PBS have a monopoly on wealthy people in corsets embroiled in soap opera scandals, NBC has drafted Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes to recreate that sort of heightened costume drama Stateside with The Gilded Age, an “epic tale of the princes of the American Renaissance, and the vast fortunes they made—and spent—in late 19th-century New York.”

America steals everything. Yes, I will watch this.

I BET YOU THEY WILL HAVE YOUNG CORA LEVINSON AS A CHARACTER AND SHE WILL BE A BUCCANEER OVER IN LONDON IN A SUBPLOT AND IT WILL BE FELLOWES VERSION OF A CARTMEL PLAN TO SNEAK THAT PREQUEL STORY INTO CANON WITHOUT ITV HAVING TO FOOT THE BILL.

Oh, look, Downton Abbey wound up handling the tricky politics and vague moralities of the Irish War of Independence with such nuance.

I think…

…that instead of writing my Crush of the Week for tomorrow, I’m just going to write an epic Downton Abbey: The Next Generation fan fic set in 1939. Matthew and Mary are the Lord and Lady Grantham. They have three children, Robbie, who is a natural leader, but who has poetic ambitions, Reggie, who is secretly gay, and Lizzie, a spitfire tomboy. Robbie is clearly Mary’s unspoken favorite and Lizzie Matthew’s. Edith is a famous novelist whose passionate romance novel, The Other Heiress, is being turned into a movie starring Laurence Olivier, Errol Flynn, Greer Garson and Myrna Loy. The house is run by Thomas, or Barrow, who is the head butler, Anna, or Mrs. Bates, who is now head housekeeper, and the head cook is Daisy, or Mrs. Mason. Various trouble-making maids and staff are below them. The show opens with young Sybil Branson visiting from Oxford—she’s a history major at St. Hugh’s—with her capricious friend and classmate, Lady Margaret Harville, Sybil’s beau, a middle class Marxist, Joe Buckley, and Joe’s friend, a Charlie Bryant. Cora and Isobel are still alive and living nearby and getting into tiffs. Oh, and World War II is going to break out at the end of the pilot.

Boom. I’m brilliant. GIVE ME ALL THE MONIEZZZZ.

okay fine i’ll do my crush of the week….

Watch out people! I might be bringing this back! So, if you’re not into potential series 3 spoilers, unfollow! Or, if you never knew I did this…I did this.
