While some of the humor in these skits is a bit…well, I imagine Carson would refer to it as low-brow, Fallon’s re-imagining of the characters and events of the popular British soap is hard to resist. Click through for a look at the next two installments in Downton Sixbey – and here’s hoping there are more to come in honor of Series 3 wrapping up.
Much like their television counterparts in Yorkshire, the residents of Dowton Sixbey have also fallen on hard times financially, due to some poor investments in bad restaurant franchises and unfortunate fad products such as the Shake Weight. This forces everyone to economize to somewhat hilarious (and gross) results. Also, honestly, Brooke Shields impression of Elizabeth McGovern could not be more spot on.
Episode 4 brings us wedding preparations, eavesdropping and a complicated past for Mr. Higgins. Unfortunately, Whoopi Goldberg does not get nearly enough to do, but maybe someone can correct that when we get around to Episode 5.
