'Downton Abbey'
If you're a fan of period dramas, you may already love the British historical series known as Downton Abbey. Alternately, want to tune in to this award-winning series for the first time? Start from the beginning, which opens with the lives of the Crawley family after the sinking of the Titanic in 1912, by streaming it on Amazon Prime Video. Just as good as any history book, if you ask us.
