Or, wait three weeks and buy the DVDs with the full, unedited, "why are PBS such farking morons and editing the show when they don't have commercials or timeslots to adhere to?" versions of the episodes.

/Or, you know, teh torrents.

I'm watching the whole day marathon. yay!

Tell them about the goddamn sword-fight & orgy as well, princess spoiler-alert!

From Ken Jennings (the Jeopardy guy): If you like TV from England that actually aired months ago, watch "Downton Abbey" tonight and then some of "The Olympics"!
 
2013-01-06 02:49:37 PM  
Yeah, I'll wait for the disc release and then Amazon Prime streaming.

/get with it Netflix.  Only Season 1?  SRSLY?
 
2013-01-06 03:03:26 PM  
I already signed up for Amazon Prime streaming.  Where else, other than this show, would I learn that dropsy was the old name for cardiac tamponade?

Wow! Ken Jennings is pretty funny! And you manage to cut and paste what he says, which makes you almost as good!

/no, it doesn't
 
2013-01-06 03:58:20 PM  
Oh, and Subby... Bates is already in the Big House. I believe the question is how long he will remain in there.

I just got season 2 from the library today.
 
2013-01-06 04:23:07 PM  
Or you could just watch this uncensored clip from the third season (NSFW language)...

/which doubles as an uncensored clip from the final season of  Breaking Bad

Ok, my wife and I just finished cramming 3 seasons of Downton Abbey down our craw over the holidays, and we can't wait for BB to resume.

THAT was hysterical.

One nice thing about being the Head of Technical Services in a Library - my department orders and receives everything.  I had Season 2 in my hot little hands before street date.

/not that I watched it before street date, mind you... I absolutely kept it in my desk drawer until I checked it out on street date, like any other patron.
//By the time Season 3 comes out, I'll be the Director.  No more hijacking the good stuff out of Technical Services. :(

I suppose. It was all over the wires that Matthew crashes his car after Mary gives birth to an heir. I haven't watched any of it.
 
2013-01-06 06:48:17 PM  

Yes, he's already there, and of course.

/watched Season 3 as it aired in the UK

//yay torrents

Is the editing that bad? We watched the first two seasons on Netflix/Amazon Prime so we don't have a frame of reference (though I've seen how bad BBC America butchers Doctor Who, so I can understand).

Popcorn Johnny: Never seen the show, what's it about?


It's a British soap opera about Edwardian England.  I've enjoyed it.  But, it's a soap.

Yeah, Season 3 ended a few weeks ago in the UK. We're just getting it in the US here. Some people have managed to remain spoiler free. Hope they aren't reading this thread.

I forgot this drivel was going to be on, my g/f is planning to watch the entire season again. I won't spoil one crazy wacky minute for anyone. I will miss the Chicken Lady when she leaves.

That show is surprisingly good. Better than most stuff produced in America.
 
2013-01-06 08:43:44 PM  
watching Bates this season is like watching season 4 of The Wire
 
2013-01-06 08:52:51 PM  
Season three is definitely weaker feeling that the first two. Just goes to show how much the shoe relies on the soap opera-y nature of Mary and Mathew.

/Waiting patiently for season 4.
//Seriously, who didn't already torrent this?
 
2013-01-06 08:55:52 PM  
Until 2 minutes ago, I thought the name of the show was Downtown Abbey.
 
2013-01-06 08:58:25 PM  
Coming on in three minutes, later dudes......

I have a question that sincerely is NOT trolling, but sounds like it.

Are we going to have threads for every random show now? Is this going to be 'the thing'?

This show is hugely popular, not some random show.

I think you basically get threads on shows that get "huge" media attention that are not reality shows (seems like Fark shys away from doing reality show threads for the most part) ... but, basically anything like Downton Abbey, any major AMC Show (MM, BB, WD), some HBO/Showtime shows, etc.

That and any major sporting event gets a thread.
 
2013-01-06 09:14:18 PM  
Watched the Christmas Special on Friday. Had season three before Christmas because a friend got it for me. Yes, season 3 will fark with your emotions. I eagerly wait for season 4.

I was hooked immediately on the show.
Watching that show has made me realize I want servants!

Seriously... I've already told the wife. We're getting at least a maid/cook out of this!

I understand, I want a Carson. He makes the house run smoothly, and I need some of that in my life.

Not too smart to read comments on a show that has already been shown. You should expect spoilers. You're own fault.

It's like Dallas in Yorkshire.

Saw it yesterday in a preview at the Seattle Art Museum. Listen for: "If we're both going to marry Crawley sisters, we're going to have to stick together." It comes up twice.

It is my understanding she's leaving the series, possibly visiting from time to time. Possibly. The new season is old already.
