Great great series. I enjoyed it and was bummed when I found out Netflix did not have the second season. If you have this on hold and you have Netflix, don't wait watch it on there :)

Ditto FionaBishop.

Great Show, interesting for younger viewers as well. Intriguing romance, drama and conflicts. Fell in love with the characters and am impatiently waiting for Series 2, seeing as it is already out in the UK, and should be here around October hopefully

Really nice take on the whole "Upstairs, Downstairs" or "Downton Abbey" concept of issues between social classes in the early 1800's. This takes place in a small department store rather than a house, which makes it slightly more interesting. I would've loved for this to have been an ongoing series as the characters were likeable and the dark secret at the center of the story would've carried well for several seasons.

Although this could well be compared to the excellent Mr, Selfridge, it does stand up in its own right and is thoroughly enjoyable,
