Downton Abbey

Is anyone else watching this show? I am in love with it. Friday night and yesterday I watched the entire first season on Netflix and the first two episodes of season 2 on PBS.com. The third episode was on tonight. It is a really great show if you like period pieces. I guess that in the UK they are on season 3, but it was brought here to the states late. I even ordered the first and second season UK unedited DVD's.

Yes - LOVE it! We watched the first season last year. It just pulls you in and I am so disappointed when each episode ends - the time passes so quickly. It is so well done, I think. I did not realize the UK was seeing season 3. Our third episode this season comes on in half an hour.

Yes, I watched the first 10 episodes in 4 days last week.
It was so satisfying. I even found a book at Barnes and Noble that talks about the characters, actors, filming, history of the home. I'm into it!

Saw the episode last night and now another week we must wait.

I have to admit I first wanted to watch it because of Dame Maggie Smith. I have watched each Harry Potter movie countless times with my kids. She is great. I also have always liked Elizabeth McGovern.

I will have to get the book. I did read online about the castle it is filmed at.

Love Downton Abby, but I loved Upstairs Downstairs also.

We caught the first season when it aired and then watched it again on Netflix when we learned Season 2 was coming. I love this show!

I just read where Shirley MacLaine will be joining Downton Abbey for the third season, as Lady Grantham's mother. I have always loved her and had wondered if she has been in anything recently. Looking forward to that!

I don't know how I feel about casting her. She seems rough and Lady Grantham is far from rough. I only really know her from Terms of Endearment, though. I looked on IMDB and she is to be in 6 things in 2012/2013.

I misspoke earlier. I thought I had read that Season 3 was showing in the UK, but it is starting to film.
