Yes, I would tape it. I watched it again when my local station replayed it at one in the morning. The voice over at the end said there is a servants' rebellion and the masters find out what the downstairs people are going through. I think the other thing that got me was how easily the masters saw the work of the servants as their due. It didn't take them long to get spoiled by the easier life.
It may have sounded like I didn't like the show, but I did. It was just hard to take being a 21st century kind of person and knowing they voluntarily put themselves in that position.
