Who's thirsty...for moderately interesting squabbles over dinner jackets?

It's almost time for the new season of Downton Abbey to premiere overseas (and be illegally torrented in America)! For those who weren't turned away by the rape-and-yawn stories of last season, the UK's ITV network is whetting viewers' appetites with some pics from the new season.

Unfortunately, they had to take down the above photo after it was discovered that someone on-set who is very much into hydration might have gotten a little careless.

Shall we pretend we're at our local dive bar and play some Photo Hunt? What's wrong with this picture?

All true. But we're overlooking one important detail that was overlooked way before we got here.

Maybe they saw it and figured, "Whatever, maybe it's a fancy vase. They were ahead of their time! No one's watching this show anymore anyway!"

If Lady Mary were in the room she'd probably compare the bottle to Lady Edith's figure in a manner that is waaay unnecessary.
