I've heard the chatter about Downton Abbey for a couple of years. I even downloaded season one to entertain me on my fourteen hour flight over the summer and failed to watch one minute. It wasn't until a Friday night at home two weeks ago when our beloved Dateline (nerds!) was a rerun that I asked my husband if he wanted to try watching episode one of Downton. One episode turned into two and after a season two marathon of sorts yesterday we are just about on to season three.
WHY have I not been watching until now? I am willing to go as far as to say that is is my favorite series I have ever watched. Well-written, humorous, sad, engaging - it's all there. I got so into it yesterday I even proposed a trip to Hampshire, England to see Highclere Castle in person. (Not kidding.)
Sadly I saw some spoilers on Facebook this morning and while I am not happy about what I saw, it will not stop me from watching.
Here's to my watching more TV in the past two weeks than I have in the past six months combined!
Who else is watching??
