agreed, k-l.

i love the outdoor scenes on the grounds as well, with the old oaks swaying in the breeze. this past week had a shot of highclere as seen from the road as a car drives up.

must be an impressive sight for tourists.

We will be near there in Oct. BT and we so wanted to visit but they won't be open for tourists in the fall and winter. We may have a chance to see it from a distance, we'll see.

i'm both disappointed and still am a fan. these are not story arcs, but rather oddly woven threads that because of their historical value and human interaction keeps them interesting.
I believe the adults were all saying her mother told them how much Rose hated London. Obviously, it was a polite way for the mother to get her daughter out of town and away from the affair. That way the mom didn't have to say "Please take my wild child and beat some sense into her!"

yes, but wbat i meant was that you could see something like that coming. they were telegraphing their pitches, to steal a baseball expression.

I just ran across this.
If anything can "spoil" DA, this just might be it. I may never watch it the same way again

I only just started watching it since recovering from heart surgery......lots of time on my hands to just sit......my DH bought the series, one at a time, from Amazon. He started at first downloading them one at a time from I-tunes but they were so slow to download (7 hours per episode) and sometimes they would stop in the middle while we were watching it. So once hooked, we bit the bullet and bought series 2 and 3 from Amazon. We're only on Episode 7 of series 3.

It's quite fun.....I wake up in the morning feeling more elegant and graceful sometimes.

Soorner or later, every show turns into a rerun. So why bother buying it. But for Downton Abby it is an investment that you will enjoy for years to come. You won't have to wait for it to become a rerun. I just wish I had the money to buy the complete series. What a nice husband. The show does grab you.

I can see me watching the last series again, before season 4 starts.

Another reason to get your % from the tribe.
