Stephen Colbert did not seem to pleased that Michelle Obama was able to get her hands on the newest season of “Downtown Abbey” before us commoners were graced with its presence. As retaliation in the way only Stephen Colbert would retialiate, he decided to create a new version of the show that even the almighty Michelle Obama hasn't gotten her eyes on.
“Breaking Abbey” chronicles the adventures of the Downtown Abbey crew (the short stars Hugh Bonneville, Jim Carter and Rob James-Collier) getting into some Heisenberg-esque adventures. Definitely a solid watch for fans of either show. Or, at the very least, to see Colbert crush it before he goes off the air for three weeks.
