Downton Abbey!

One more day until the new season of Downton Abbey! We rewatched some of the last episodes of last season so we are ready to go! Any other fans?

Did you see the show on HGTV last night on the castle they use to film the series? It was pretty cool... old photos of people who lived there in real life who are the basis of some of the characters, letter from WWI soldiers who were hospitalized there, etc.

Yes, I saw it too! I hope the success of this show will bring in the funds so they can get more of the castle restored. From other reading, it sounds like the upper floors are crumbling and are in very bad condition.

And then, later last night, there was a program on showing Aaron and Candy Spelling's 'castle'. Oh. My. She sold it and had to be out of it in 30 days. Mind boggling the amount of stuff that woman owned.

I saw both shows. I wonder what the Spelling Manor's electric bill was monthly-good gravy!

Tat was very funny, Tess. They did a great job capturing the characters in canine.

I'm a fan - but didn't know it even existed until this last summer! I watched all the previous episodes on Amazon - and now I'm hooked!

Thanks for posting this Linda. I pre-ordered the season 3 DVD and completely forgot that it was starting on TV. I need to spend tomorrow watching season 2 after I take down the Christmas tree.

Tess, that was funny!
