    Ally - I stayed up WAY too late finishing the season last night. SO good. I have to find season two.

    I also was very excited to see a SK tie in-ish.

    Mary says to Mr. Crawley when they are talking about how hard he works, "You know what they say about Jack..."

    And he responds, "So you think I'm a dull boy?"

    My husband and I were like WHAT? We thought SK invented this! So of course we googled it and it looks like it's a poem from 1659, I believe that says something like:

    All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy
    All play and no work makes Jack a toy

    That may be a little off but I thought it was a very cool learning experience!

    Oh my, I just found this thread. I love Downton Abbey. Unfortunately, Netflix only has the first season. I keep checking for the 2nd because of course, my idiot cable company doesn't carry BBC.

    I'll ask my husband where he's getting it from because he's gotten us caught up to the current season that's underway. I'll find out for you.

    DO NOT READ THIS IS YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THE CHRISTMAS EPISODE THAT HAS NOT YET AIRED IN THE US.

    For my British friends that have:


    *gasp* I am shocked!! What do you guys think? Devastated.


    And I am very confused. What season are they on in the UK? Because season three is just now starting in the US and I am way ahead of the rest of my fellow Americans.

    Downton Abbey is by far one of the most addicting, worthwhile TV shows I have ever watched and I'm excited for Sunday!

    I like downton a lot. It's very very good. But I don't understand why it's so much more popular than other British period dramas of the past twenty years.
