Upstairs, Downstairs

I was only four years old when it first appeared on American TV, but my mother tells me she watched it religiously. I'm half-way through the series, which streams on Netflix. For those of you who have watched it, who were your favorite characters and storylines? My favorite characters are definitely Rose (Jean Marsh), Sarah (Pauline Collins), and Mrs Bridges (Angela Baddeley). Actually, all of the servants seem so well-cast.I read that Collins' character and the chauffeur, Thomas, had their own spin-off in the late 70s ("Thomas and Sarah"). I feel like the end of Alfred's storyline was pretty homophobic. The writers should have never brought back his character, in my opinion.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
