'Edith With Googly Eyes' Is the Only Good Thing About Downton Abbey at This Point

The third season of Downton Abbey, ITV's counterrevolutionary paean to inequality and feudalism, is currently airing in the United States, where it will disappoint and frustrate the fans who are still sticking around in the hopes it might recapture some of the magic of the first season. Spoiler alert: it doesn't, and as with the second season I highly recommend that you don't invest any time or emotional energy in this new one, which doesn't even have a crowd-pleasing Christmas-special payoff.
