Downton Abbey

Fans of Masterpiece Theater will recognize the title--the rest of us?
When you have a deep need for class differences, sibling rivalry, spectacular cinematography, Anglophilia escapism, "Downton Abbey" is just the ticket.

Only 7 episodes, and I rationed them like chocolate in 1984.
  Must be my sentimental side.



  1. Oh my gosh, is that Maggie Smith? Of course I'll watch it.

  2. I'd loved it, but--spoiler alert--I thought it was a complete miniseries. Alas, it is season one! So no nice and final resolutions coming up.

  3. At the risk of sounding like a shill, Netflix On demand, $8 a month for your computer screen--

  4. Not on Hulu, I take it.

    It is certainly my cup of tea.

  5. Never saw it. Maybe I should, my Netflix list is becoming woefully dull as I, along with zillion others, await our turn for the "hot" flicks. Glenn Close the lawyer being one

  6. I have to say, PA, I don't peg you for the kind of gal who enjoys costume drama-unless you're creating one of your own--
