Looking for a show to satisfy your Downton longing? Check out Mr. Selfridge, currently airing on PBS and now available on DVD and Blu-ray. Jeremy Piven (Entourage’s Ari Gold) stars as Harry Gordon Selfridge, the brash American merchandising genius who founded the London department store that bears his name. But what makes this series so much fun is the fabulous supporting cast, playing a variety of Selfridge saleswomen, waiters, window designers and other employees. Then there’s Harry’s complicated personal life and the lively re-creation of turn-of-the century customs and costumes.
