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?
