My mom's obsessed with that show now and I don't know why but I can't stand watching it. It's painful.
It's basically about a bunch of rich snobs in a larger than university-sized estate and their petty dramatic lives.

How is that even remotely interesting? "Oh dear, my finances are down. I must sell this grandiose estate for a smaller one."

And the old women are the worst in that show! Lol I guess it's my incredible bias that makes me hate that show

And the lives of those that actually run the house.

I'm sure there are things you find interesting that others would find dreadfully boring.

Maggie Smith is awesome.

Perhaps you do not understand the elegance of such a complex and highly entertaining show. This is one of the highest rated show ever on PBS.
