Manor House

Though I already really enjoy PBS, their reality shows have been vastly superior to any of the garbage I've seen on most other channels. From Frontier House to Surviving the Iron Age, they've been both thoroughly entertaining and informative.

The latest is Manor House. The premise is a great one and, to me, thoroughly British. Take a middle class family and move them into an old manor house, where they act as one of the nouveau riche in 1906. Then add a group of volunteers to be their servants. You just KNOW something's going to happen.

It's really been great so far. Watching it, it's hard to believe that this was going on less than 100 years ago. If you missed the first episode, I believe they're rerunning the entire 3 part series next week, so don't miss it.
