Downton Abbey has become an indelible part of pop culture. It’s been parodied by Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert, as well as Sesame Street and Saturday Night Live.  It has been the topic of countless social media posts and Tweets, while the cast has graced the covers of Entertainment Weekly and TV Guide, and appeared on TODAY, Good Morning America, and The View. I believe you won’t be disappointed with Season 6. It’s been described as “marvelously sustained” (Wall Street Journal), “delicious as ever” (New York Daily News), and “the perfect way to begin the New Year” (Los Angeles Times).
