I got kinda excited when I saw that Stephen Colbert had done a spoof melding “Breaking Bad” with “Downton Abbey” (apparently about a year old, going by the references). Because you know, I’m not done talking about “Breaking Bad.”
And it really had possibilities, considering that actual Downton cast members appear in it, and speak the lines. (Quoth Lord Grantham: “I promised the buyer product, and a gentleman keeps his word, or one has a cap popped in one’s arse.”)
Neither did this rise to the level of Jimmy Fallon’s “Breaking Bad” spoof several months ago.
