As far as the Peter versus the Headmistress thing, I would have phrased it differently. If I were him, I would have played up the "It's not wise to go against me" line, rather than the "You don't say no to me".

I understand that Alicia wants her kids back in the school she trusts but I don't know that Peter agrees; the fact that he went to bat for this so strongly for her belief makes me feel like they might reconcile, at least in Soap Opera fashion.
boy, this last episode of tgw sure stirred up some real interest and also some welcomed discussions, didn't it? i just wanted to say that i don't think peter will get back into alicia's good graces with his strong-arm tactics with the headmistress. remember, alicia was under the impression that peter got his way by using his CHARM, not brute power. when she learns that he used threats to get the kids accepted at the school--and it WILL eventually come out--peter will look less appealing than ever, and his character will need to be evaluated anew. i too heartily support alicia and kalinda's reconciliation, and i think we saw a little bit of that starting to happen in this show....

I was leafing through a 'Rolling Stone" and there was and article about the new people on TV shows; Alan Cumming was one, and it said that his character, Eli Gold is named the same as "Ari Gold" on Entourage - after Rahm Emmanuel and his brother Ari.

Thought it was interesting.

Oh, no!! The Good Wife is new tonight, and so is Downton Abbey. Gotta fire up the DVR and then decide which one will have to wait.

must be a blue moon tonight.:) who do i thank for my introduction to downton abbey? i'm hooked! sherry, where can i view last season's episodes? i have plenty of time, thanks to lousy network tv rosters of late....tgw is mighty stingy w/new episodes this season. just how long and far do they think they can string along their loyal viewers? tgw, with all its fits and starts, is beginning to lose some of its appeal--i'm getting weary with the waiting, and with the lack of continuity of the story line....

You can watch Season 1 at the PBS website. Also on Netflix (streamable) if you have that. Maybe Hulu?

Steve and I spent the last week watching all seven episodes of Downton Abbey, season one with Netflix. I'm so glad someone here mentioned it or I would have never known about it. WOW.......talk about hooked!! We'll watch season two at the PBS website.
