Down on the town with Abbey

I had resolved to catch up with pop culture trends I have missed.  Thankfully, before I could watch the Twilight movies, Downton Abbey stole my heart.  It’s like they are trying trick us with a word that is so similar to downtown.   No Petula Clark, but lots of other Brits in an addictive show.  Here is my story…

  1. I like you inserting yourself. That greatly improves the cast.
    They do an awful lot of complaining and none of them are very funny.
    I would prefer a Daphne Brogdon parody of the whole thing.

  2. My husband said that same thing about Laura Linney the other night! I love Downton Abbey. It might have even slightly inspired our trip to Bath and London for xmas. I watch it with my four year old – she’s hooked too!

  3. Love DA! Somehow I was lucky enough to get on the train at the start, not sure how … I do keep my eye on the Masterpiece schedule each year, I guess. A few years ago they did several of the Jane Austen books (mostly new productions) … quite good! I basically love anything historical from the UK.

    Some suggestions (Netflix) …

    North and South – BBC Series (Elizabeth Gaskell, don’t confuse with American mini-series set in Civil War)

    Persuasion – 2007 (Sally Hawkins)

    Emma – 2009 (Masterpiece Classic)
