Post Downton Abbey
My cousin, aunt and uncle, mentioned this movie/series to me a few weeks ago at a wedding. Well, it sounded pretty interesting so I purchased Season 1 & 2 on DVD and watched them last week. Like 3 hours each night watching it. :green:

I got hooked. Have you guys seen it? It's on PBS and the 3rd Season is to have Shirley McClain in it.

Anyway, here is some info on it:

Here is a trailer:

http://www.itv.com/downtonabbey/

How they did the set is pretty interesting. And Maggie Smith is hilarious. She is the Dowager Duchess. Her quotes will kill ya. :green:

The 3rd season won't be on until January 2013. Some of the previews are on the link above.

Here is another link to some trailers:

Here is the Best of Maggie Smith:

Yeah, that's what the Boss was saying. He hated that I tied up the tv watching it on DVD. But, it's not his cup of tea. Heh. He is a snob though. Worse than the British! :green:

The funny thing is, they won't show the 3rd season in America until January 6th. Many Americans were asking why we can't see the feed live like over there? I never saw an answer to that question. I guess the Efeed is slow over yonder. :teehee:

Max, I think you would like the humor. I started cracking up on the "Maggie" by Rod Stewart music in the background when they were showing cuts on Maggie Smith. I normally don't :quote2: get :quote2: British comedy or jokes, but I'm loving these characters in the series. I actually like them all----even the mean bad bullies! There is some fantastic acting going on in this series.

Max, it's worth the Netflix. Let me know what you think of it!

Same reason we couldn't watch the Olympics livestream, I'm sure. :rolleye:
