OVERRATED: 'Downton Abbey'

It's tough to knock anything on the ever-underrated PBS, but for all the cultish devotion this series inspires, you'd think it would deliver more than lush costumes and set design. Maggie Smith's one-liners remain acidic delights, but the two bad seeds in the servants' quarters stubbornly defy any new growth or evolution, and the drama around its central couples carries a soapy bluster this show should outclass.
