Break out the fainting couch. The first trailer for Downton Abbey's fifth season is here! And unlike the brief teaser previously released, this video dives deep into the changing environment at Downton.
"I feel a shaking on the ground I stand on," Carson narrates.
After a historically inaccurate promo photo from Downton Abbey's fifth season went viral (unless they really did have plastic water bottles in the 1920s), the cast found the perfect response on Friday.
Check out the first photos from Downton Abbey's fifth season
The upstairs and downstairs came together for a photo, all doing their best "Did I do that?" expression — and in Allen Leech's case, just a solid duck face — while holding plastic water bottles. The best part: They included the hashtag "wH2oops." Wins, all around.
We're still a few months away from the Season 5 premiere of Downton Abbey on PBS, but if you can't wait to see what's in store for the Crawleys and their staff, allow these newly released first-look images to tide you over.
Dust off your fancypants, Downton Abbey fans. The British series' fifth season has a Stateside premiere date...

Question: I have never been a fan of Two and a Half Men (tried to watch it years ago, but the only thing I found funny was Conchata Ferrell) and never understood how it has stayed on the air for so long. I saw that creator Chuck Lorre is planning on the main storyline next season to be about the two main characters (Walden and Alan, both heterosexual) "marrying" each other in order for Walden to achieve his goal of adopting a child. To me, I find this appalling on so many levels. Gay men and women (and their straight allies) have fought for so long for equal marriage rights, so having two straight men "marry" just seems like a mockery for those fighting for marriage equality. I am a little ashamed of Lorre even coming up with this idea (particularly as his biggest star, Jim Parsons, on his biggest show, The Big Bang Theory, is gay). Your thoughts? — Tim in Atlanta
