New on TV - January 2015

Episodes ✭ 

Season Four Showtime

Downton Abbey ✭✭✭✭½

Season Five - PBS

The biggest deal is it looks like Lady Mary is about to do the wild thing with one of those indistinquishable fops that keep chasing her. However, you can tell much awkward unpleasantness is being set up for later in the year. And yes, a season six is in the works. I bet Dan Stevens is glad this show isn't holding him back anymore. (cough)
