Media Consumption


Just yesterday I was complaining about the concept of a Reality TV channel. Then the TiVo, always looking out for me, shared a clip of Manor House, currently airing on PBS. Nineteen volunteers move in to a house set in Edwardian Britian and live out life as servants and masters. They have to live by the rules of Edwardian society, where people know their place and do as is expected of them.

Taking Manderston (an authentic Edwardian pleasure palace in the Scottish Borders), a family of five and a newly formed staff of 14 – this six-part series turns back the clock to re-create life as it was for the new rich and their servants during the halcyon period in British social history before the First World War.

For those of us that love things such as “Sense & Sensibility” and “Pride & Prejudice”, this looks like it will be quite perfect. I’ve already set the Tivo to start recording it today!

And yes, there is a Snob-o-Meter on the site so you can test your snob powers and determine if you would have ended up upstairs or downstairs!

I was very excited to find out I was only 57% snob. I thought it would be much higher.

When I told my buddy, she replied it was a good thing I was only 57% snob or she wouldn’t be my friend.

I replied that would make her a snob.
