Did you passionately tear down your Mr. Darcy posters and replace them with a centerfold of Mr. Bates? Were you a C student in high school Economics, but can explain the ramifications of an entail with ease? Have you ever absentmindedly signed a check "Mrs. Crawley"? You are not alone. The biggest challenge for Downton Abbey fans, besides anxiously waiting for the British to let us colonists get our delayed fix on PBS, is deciding which male character is worthy of our love. Fret no more, my friends, this quiz will guide your tortured hearts. Technical note: This seems to work the best in Google Chrome and the worst in Firefox. By: Jill M. Wagner
