downton abbey.

57:365 downton abbey.
...as in my latest obsession. in class on sunday there was plenty of excitement about the start of the second season. I'm not sure where I was last year when season one debuted, but boy did I miss out! fortunately, the episodes are available on-line (through next tuesday, I think). so I spent many hours yesterday at my desk, with my knitting, watching tv. (and no worries, the coaster on the right started with coffee, moved to tea, and didn't get to wine til 7pm :-)

what a gem! I love the upstairs-downstairs aspect. and lord granville's strength of character. of course maggie smith makes anything better. and I can't believe elizabeth mcgovern is old enough to be the matron (she's my age, though, I guess we are that old!)

back to watching....

  1. Thanx for the tip about catching last season's shows on the Internet. I gather from comments made on NBC nightly news that a whole lot of us missed out on season one. I too plan to watch this season.

    Cheers~

  5. And they've already approved a Season 3! I can't think of any series that has made me look forward to a certain night of TV since Roots - way back when. I found Downton Abbey last year from another knitting friend and I'm hooked!

  7. I plan on watching another episode today before the KAL! Been doing a little research and the 17th looks like the last day on a couple of different sites.

  8. What is it with our family's tendency to become obsessed with tv shows?

  9. I love it too! There is a season 3 in the works and also a Christmas special that was aired in England that hopefully we will eventually get in the USA!

  10. I did catch it last year. . . and I've watched Season 1 three times through at this point. I'm That Bad. So happy Season 2 has finally arrived.
