Watch The Lost Valentine Hallmark by sean faris Movie

Watch The Lost Valentine Hallmark by sean faris Movie - After 40 years, the creators of the landmark TV series Upstairs, Downstairs announced they'd be relaunching the series this spring... only to see Julian Fellowes launch this upstart version ($34.99; PBS) clearly modeled on their show. Needless to say, they were miffed. But no one owns a copyright on stories about the aristocracy and their servants. Fellowes had mined that territory brilliantly with his screenplay for Gosford Park, Robert Altman's final masterpiece. It seemed fresh because he mixed in a murder mystery.

Here, there is no mixing. This is pure Upstairs, Downstairs territory -- in fact, during the first episode so many plot twists echoed major turns in that 1970s classic (the Titanic, closeted gays, fondness between the top man and woman overseeing the servants) that it was almost funny. Those echoes continue right through the season finale (not to mention a storyline lifted wholesale from the classic WW II film Mrs. Miniver).
