Thank you Gravy Queen. I hate people who just have to tell you how the book, movie, story, etc ends. Let me find out for myself.

I heard an interview with the author, Julian Fellowes, today -- said he is working on Season 4. Yay!

So the questions for this season are:

Will they lose Downton Abby? (Don't think so. Then they would have to change the name of the show.)

Will Bates be found not guilty and finally freed?

Will Thomas finally get his comeuppance?

Will Mathew and Mary begin a family?

Will there be one big clash between Cora's mother and the Dowager Lady?

And what about the maid that had the baby and had to leave service? She showed up at the place for homeless women. What is that all about.

Will the dastardly newpaper mogul expose Mary in his newpapers?

Will the husband from Ireland be banned from the home for being too political and strongly anti-English? Will his English wife finally get fed up and return to Downton Abby without him? Will there be a divorce in the family?

Will the last daughter finally marry her much older gentleman with the bad arm?

And lastly, each week for one hour prior to Downton Abby, there will be a showing of other great English houses that are still functioning showing how they are doing. Including Hampton Court. King Henry's VIII's castle.

We watch a good deal of tv shows from the UK, so we now understand the accents pretty well and a lot of the slang. It took a while, but I couldn't imagine having to struggle to listen because of a hearing problem. As it is we have to listen fairly close to get it all.

(Caution, this is my sense of humour talking, it is not a rant )

Okay, I have to interject here for a moment. I was quite happy in the fact that I had no knowledge of this show, never watched it, didn't know who was in it. It is not that I don't like period pieces, I actually love them. I just didn't have time to get into a new series.

Then my cake community has a hat contest and the two winning cakes were based on Downton Abbey hats. Hmm, a little curious but that is all. Then you guys start talking about it and even get Pac watching it. So, yesterday I looked to see if we get it and found out I can get the first two seasons through Zip - a mail-order video company. We gave up Netflix because they didn't have anything we wanted.

So, I have not said a word to this point to TB and yesterday he comes home from the store with the latest TV magazine with none other than Downton Abbey on the cover, showing what's new for season 3. He thought it was showing the new shows for January.

So, now I have read up on it, and figure I will just head straight into season three and ask you all any questions I might have on the show.

OOh, watch the first two seasons!

There are only 6-7 episodes per season, it'll be a cinch!
