Five new fall TV shows for people with brains [Pictures]
With the networks hyping our brains out for their new fall shows, the best of PBS sometimes gets overlooked amid mindless commercial clutter. Here are five productions that will debut on PBS this fall that will make you feel good about TV -- and yourself for watching. I'll have five picks from cable and five from the networks in coming days. Stay tuned. -- David Zurawik

Jean Marsh in 'Upstairs, Downstairs'( PBS / August 13, 2012 )
By itself, the presence of Jean Marsh reprising the role of Rose -- for which she won an Emmy in 1974 (yes '74) -- would have been enough to make me love the return to 'Upstairs Downstairs.' Marsh is back, and I'll be there again for Season 2 starting Oct. 2.
