Have You Seen This Show?

I guess I'm a little late to the party--since this Season Two is now over--but I am completely addicted to Downton Abbey!

What a beautiful show!  I am about 5 episodes into Season One and I just love it.  I kept hearing about it from friends on Facebook, etc., and had to know what all of the hype was about.
I was not disappointed.

I was telling Vince that it was like watching a whole series of that wonderful movie Gosford Park, when I read that it is written by the very same man!  (Okay, I need to calm down on the exclamation marks, I know).  

I love everything about this show: the melancholy theme music, the lovely way the domestic part of the home is portrayed and, of course, the oh-so-interesting people and their stories.

It's the perfect way for me to unwind after getting the kiddos tucked into bed--you know, with a cup of hot tea so I can really feel English and all.

How about you--have you watched Downton Abbey?

My husband and I watched the 1st season together last year but for some reason I missed the last episode so when the 2nd season started this year, I refused to watch it with him. I had told my sister about DA so she bought season 1 and we had a pajama party at her house and watched almost the whole season in one night and finished watching it the next morning. Wonderful acting, great characters and beautiful scenery. I just now rented season 2 from the library and my husband and I are watching it now. He doesn't mind watching it over because he enjoys it almost as much as I do.
