I am sure most of ya'll are familiar with Joy, aka HappyHappyJoyJoy, of Obsessed with Scrapbooking and ya'll have grown to love her. But let me tell ya, she is evil...PURE EVIL!!! She mentioned on Facebook this weekend that she was watching some show and was really enjoying it. I haven't had anything good to watch lately and wondered about it.
Downton Abbey. I looked it up on Netflix and figured I would give it a whirl. I ended up devoting the whole weekend to watching the dang show!!
This series had me enthralled with the intertwined lives of not only the aristocratic family but their house staff as well as they made their way through daily life of the historic time of the early 1900's. I finished watching the first season and was ready to immediately start watching the second season. I loaded up Netflix and to my absolute horror there was no second season! I did a search and still no second season! I did search on the internet and found it was available on Hulu Plus. Luckily there was a free trial so I could watch the second season.
Now the problem lies in that the 3rd season doesn't start in the states until January 6th of 2013!! HOW IN THE HELL AM I SUPPOSE TO SURVIVE UNTIL THEN?? I have actually thought about mentioning my dilemma on Facebook with hopes that one of my lovely UK friends has Skype and would set their computer in front of their telly so I could watch along with them. While this might appear to be a fabulously ingenious idea there is a problem...TIME ZONE DIFFERENCE. So I guess I shall have to suffer through the next 100+ days until the premiere on PBS. I guess until that time I can watch the series a few times so I can have the story down pat when the new season starts.
Oh and another reason Joy is evil...well she tried to put the blame on poor Melanie, aka AmeriBritgal, of Courtney Lane Designs, who I can't imagine ever getting anyone hooked om something that isn't readily available.
I have been wanting to get this from Netflix and watch it. I know I will get addicted to it, too!ReplyDelete
This series probably is really good, but I cannot understand 85% of what people say when they speak with a British accent. By the time I figure out what was said, the scene has changed and I've missed out on the plot! LOL!ReplyDelete
Guess I've just spent too many years hearing the Oklahoma twang!
Would you believe I've never seen a single episode! It's always on when I am over here in the states, all over by the time I get home. Guess I need to start watching.....ReplyDelete
You also need to watch the Christmas show from last Christmas. This was an extra (as in not part of the series)ReplyDelete
I loved it.
You need to watch the extra show that appeared in the UK last christmas. It was not part of the series.ReplyDelete

Hey, now! You know you love it! I've been googling to try to find it on the internet so I can see season 3.ReplyDelete
Somebody close to me posted this link on her FB page a few days ago (and ended up being able to see the first episode within a day)...ReplyDelete
That same person on my FB (she's my cousin, I totally trust her) wrote this today...ReplyDelete
"To all my Downton Abbey FB Friends...if you can't wait for the new season to air in the US (like me) then LIKE the Downton Fan Page. They post a link for watching it in the US!!! I haven't tried it because I found the show on my own. Also, spoiler alerts, so don't read the updates, until you see the show."
