I thought this was funny:

My thoughts on Downton

Lord Grantham: a dope, and a good example of why the Empire collapsed.

Lady Grantham: even good ole American DNA couldn't bring back strong chins in 350 years of Crawley inbreeding.

Lady Mary Crawley: icy, high maintenance, looks good in Edwardian dress.

Lady Edith Crawley: reminds me of Marla in A League of Their Own.

Lady Sybil Crawley: another reason not to marry chauffeurs.

Dowager Countess of Grantham: the reason the empire achieved world dominance.

Matthew Crawley: blown up in the war, but still in the game.

Isobel Crawley: no Mother Theresa but doing her best.

Carson: wish my butler was half as good.

Mrs. Hughes: thank goodness the cancer didn't get her, will marry Carson eventually.

Bates: probably did kill his nasty first wife.

Anna Bates: sweet, but should keep an eye open with Bates, she can always kick him in the bad leg if she needs to get away quickly.

Sarah O'Brien: cold hearted, steely, vindictive witch, made Lady Grantham loose her baby.

Barrow: it's best the young footmen don't drop the soap.

Mrs Patmore: my kind of cook, can make a 12 course meal for 40, out of 2 dead pheasants, clotted cream, and a head of turned cabbage.
