    Soapy, well cast and boasting uniformly strong performances, the show's servant-class stories still don't measure up to more regal doings, [but] the series proves enjoyable.

    It's gripping stuff, seamlessly blending the larger tension of the world with the smaller dramas back at 165 Eaton.

    At times, the show careens from black humor to near tragedy and then back again.

    No sooner has Upstairs veered toward farce than it redeems itself, again and again.

    The refurbished series isn't as sharp as the '70s original (one of the lead characters is a monkey), and the Hollands aren't as juicy as the Granthams (literally no Turks die during sex), but it's still a whole lot of fun to look at.
