as "Robert Crawley"
This British drama series follows the lives of the Crawley family and its servants in the family's classic Georgian country house. The series begins with the 1912 sinking of the Titanic, which leaves Downton Abbey's future in jeopardy, since the presumptive heirs of Robert, Earl of Grantham -- his cousin James, and James' son, Patrick -- die in the catastrophe, leaving the family without a male offspring to take over Downton when the current lord dies. The point is important since Lord Grantham's children are daughters -- Ladies Mary, Edith and Sybil, but the facets of their lives and of those of the below-stairs staff -- also a highly regimented world -- have fascinating story lines.

as "Ian Fletcher"
Hosting the 2012 Olympics is a big deal for London, as evidenced by this comedy series, originally broadcast by the BBC, which follows the Olympic Deliverance team -- the people tasked with having the two-week event go off without a problem. The team has plenty of time before the deadline and 9 billion pounds to spend, so what could possibly go wrong? The team members do their best to get to the end of the day, the end of the week and, hopefully, the end of the Olympics without everything coming undone. Can they do it?
