The Downton Abbey thread

i think it was k-l who mentioned it elsewhere, but season three (remember to trill your rrrs) of downton abbey (aka downtown abbey in pa. ) Downton Abbey, Season 3 | Programs | Masterpiece | PBS begins this weekend (what is a weekend?), or more specifically, sunday evening at 9pm.

here's a thread for discussing what i think has been a really great series so far.

believe me, it must be good if a series about rich people in england a hundred years ago has captured my attention, for anyone that knows me.

who's going to watch? what say you about season thrrrree?

free bates!!!!

Having seen it here, plus the Christmas special I am going to keep my gob firmly shut ! Keep away from Facebook and Twitter in case of spoilers and don't speak to any strange English blonde women on cooking forums .

I am addicted to the series, hence, the reason I needed a yagi (sp) antenna tuned so that it picks up PBS. I had PBS at the farm, but couldn't get it here in the city with the antenna on the house. Now that I have an antenna that gets PBS, I plan on curling up on the couch under my Hudson Bay blanket with a cup of hot chocolate to watch the start of series 3. GQ, please don't spoil it for those of us who have had to wait for series 3 this side of the pond!

I'm glad you gave this a thread of its own Bucky!

I'm also glad to hear men are as hooked on this drama as women. As I mentioned before my Steve is really looking forward to the third season starting here in the USA on Sunday.

I'm particularly chomping at the bit to see our Shirley MacLaine added to the excellent cast of British actors!

We'll both be glued to the TV with a huge bowl of popcorn.

Well just to say, I joined Amazon Prime a few days ago and found all three seasons free to it's members But after ten minutes of trying to understand women's voices, let alone with an English accent (something my hearing has a hard time with), I almost gave up... until I tried on a whim and found the episodes on Netflix! Along with closed captioning!!!
The brief time I watched though, it looks like I could get into this. I like attention to detail and the first ten minutes were well done.

Make some popcorn Pac, and be prepared for a DA marathon now that it has your interest! Steve has the same hearing/accent problem and the Netflix captions worked great.

I think Steve and I watched the entire first season on Netflix in one weekend. For one thing, the number of episodes per season are far fewer than an American TV season.
