If you can picture all of this in your head then here's TRULY how you know you've watched too much Downton Abbey:

(intro with important sounding period theme music)

(scene of 1920s vehicle pulling up in gravel driveway to Downton Abbey)

(footman help Dowager into the house)

Dowager: Oh there's so much to talk about, let's have luncheon later today.
Earl Grantham: I cannot make promises, there is so much walking around I must do today.
Dowager: (insert clever quip about walking here)

(switch scene to downstairs)

Random new footman: Wanna play doctor?
Daisy: WOT?
Mrs Patmore: Get to work, you!
Daisy: WOT WOT?

(switch scene to Crawley's house)

Mrs Crawley: I hope to change everything in this town!
Matthew: Mother I don't care.
(knock on door)
Dowager: Shall we do luncheon?
Mrs Crawley: Oh shiznit here we go!
Dowager: (insert clever quip about shiznit)

(switch scene back to downstairs)

Mr. Carson: There will be a big luncheon today, so everyone start acting professional!
Thomas: Blah blah blah
Bates: I'll beat you up, sir.
Anna: No don't you'll get put in gaol (Mrs. Hughes: Nobody is going anywhere, now let's get to work.
(everyone gasps)

(switch scene to sitting room)

Lady Grantham: Dear what are we to do about our daughters:?
Lord Grantham: Do what?
Lady Grantham: Mary doesn't have babby yet
Lord Grantham: Matthew's winky doesn't work, so the doctor tells me.
Lady Grantham: Oh. Well, anyway Edith has a job in London now.
Lord Grantham: WOT WOT?

(scene at dinner)

Edith: I've got a job in London.
Dowager: (insert clever quip about women having jobs but with a longing look that suggests women should have jobs)
Branson: In Ireland nobody has jobs because the English won't let us have one.
Mary: (glares)
Matthew: Let's go have a drink ol' chap.
(new footman drops fork)
Everyone: WOT WOT?

(scene downstairs)

O'Brien: You caused the new footman to drop the fork!
Thomas: Prove it.
O'Brien: I'll kill you in your sleep.
Thomas: Nuh uh!
Anna: I thought you two were thick as thieves?
Bates: I'll kill you Thomas.

(scene in saloon)
Lord Grantham: I'll have to sack everyone to pay the bills.
Matthew: No sir I have a solution!
Lord Grantham: Nonsense!
Branson: Just listen to him please sir!
Lord Grantham: (stomps off)

(scene in bedroom)
Lady Grantham: I must have luncheon tomorrow.
Lord Grantham: Matthew saved us again but I acted quite badly to him.
Lady Grantham: Mary will handle it.
Lord Grantham: Oh good. Goodnight.
(Dowager bursts in the door)
Dowager: (insert clever quip about vaginas solving everything)

End Credits

I watch the urban remake "Downtown Abbey" on BET.

No, the Titanic reference was because the series kicked off when the original heir to Downton died on the ship and they had to find a way to keep it in the family.

Ah thanks... Nice touch, I'll admit.

No Such Agency: After watching "Gosford Park" I wanted to murder most of the characters (mainly the upstairs ones of course)... why would I watch a whole ongoing series in the same vein? Also, was that "Titanic" thing a reference to Upstairs, Downstairs or what?

No, the Titanic reference was because the series kicked off when the original heir to Downton died on the ship and they had to find a way to keep it in the family.

I was disappointed with Shirley, thought she played it too broadly. That scene when she was slopping food into her pie-hole was beyond overdone. Also, her face is so wrecked that Maggie Smith looks like a dewy-faced ingenue in comparison.

That list was stupid, although Matthew is more stupid to consider turning down a fortune and turning his new bride into a bigger ice princess.

The Dowager gets great lines though, even more this season than last, so I have no idea what the article is talking about being bored of Maggie Smith.

Now having RTFA it just sounds like some guy who was forced to watch it with his girlfriend so he just day dreams about OZ and counting wrinkles on Maggie Smith.
