With season 3 of the super soapy Downton Abbey set to debut January 6, we needed a refresher on all the upstairs-downstairs drama—thank you, PBS, for delivering. How else could we remember all those amazing Maggie Smith lines, or how many times (spoiler alert) Mary and Matthew Crawley were engaged (then not), engaged to other people (then not), permanently injured and infertile (then not), and so on.

If you haven't caught up on the first two seasons, PBS is re-airing episodes every Sunday this month; you can also binge-watch them on pbs.org like I do. It's a healthy habit.
