Serial television and its viewers are enjoying a golden age. Shows like Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad don't just garner fans, they gather lifetime devotees. PBS isn't the first network you think of for heavy hitting dramatic television, but the network has a formidable weapon: Downton Abbey.
Brush off your peacoat, sophisticated gait and fancy hat and head to the Liberty Theatre in Hailey for a special screening of the season four premiere of Downton Abbey. You'll enjoy wine and dessert while getting inside information from the staff at Idaho Public Television. Hailey may be a bit of a drive, considering you can watch from home, but the show has this to say: "Look, it comes down to whether or not you love me. That's all. That's it. The rest is detail."
6:45 p.m. $15 for members, $20 for nonmembers. Liberty Theatre, 110 N. Main St., Hailey, 208-788-6195, sunvalleycenter.org.
