tricycleracer: I watch the urban remake "Downtown Abbey" on BET.

You missed the version with Questlove?

Carth: someonelse: So, it's cool to post spoilers in all the entertainment threads now? Say, if one happens to know one of the key plot twists to the next Star Trek movie, for example? People would be cool with somebody just up and blowing that load when that thread comes around?

No? Then shut the f*ck up.

/lol she mad

If Star Trek were released in America 5 months before the UK I don't think it would be problem talking about it a few months after the premier.

Is it too much to ask for the rest of the world to respect my viewing schedule?

OK, maybe just make the SPOILER ALERTS more obvious and the spoilers
more easily avoidable

If something aired in any region the previous week or earlier, and you're in a thread specifically about that show in an international forum, consider yourself spoiler alerted.

If a thread is specifically about the most recent episode of a show, even one that's still airing or hasn't quite aired in some regions at the time the thread starts, consider yourself spoiler alerted for any part of said show up to and including that episode.

This is not hard, dude.

gingerjet: Firefly never got a chance to be good. IT Crowd had one good first series and a smattering of half-way decent episodes after ("The Speech" being the best of the lot) but the rest was complete shiat. Once they took them outside the realm of "IT" - it just wasn't that good.

Downton Abbey remained consistently good for the most part but it jumped the shark this season.

It did, but only, for me, in the last two minutes of the Christmas special.

I now have a standing policy that if a convertible automobile comes anywhere near my husband, I will beat it to death with a wrench, and if anyone tries to tell him that I do not need an immediate C-section while heavily pregnant and showing signs of pre-eclampsia he will beat them to death with a wrench. (I know Cluedo calls it a 'spanner,' but it still seems appropriate for the show.)

theurge14: If you can picture all of this in your head then here's TRULY how you know you've watched too much Downton Abbey:

(intro with important sounding period theme music)

(scene of 1920s vehicle pulling up in gravel driveway to Downton Abbey)

(footman help Dowager into the house)

Dowager: Oh there's so much to talk about, let's have luncheon later today.
Earl Grantham: I cannot make promises, there is so much walking around I must do today.
Dowager: (insert clever quip about walking here)

(switch scene to downstairs)

Random new footman: Wanna play doctor?
Daisy: WOT?
Mrs Patmore: Get to work, you!
Daisy: WOT WOT?

(switch scene to Crawley's house)

Mrs Crawley: I hope to change everything in this town!
Matthew: Mother I don't care.
(knock on door)
Dowager: Shall we do luncheon?
Mrs Crawley: Oh shiznit here we go!
Dowager: (insert clever quip about shiznit)

(switch scene back to downstairs)

Mr. Carson: There will be a big luncheon today, so everyone start acting professional!
Thomas: Blah blah blah
Bates: I'll beat you up, sir.
Anna: No don't you'll get put in gaol (Mrs. Hughes: Nobody is going anywhere, now let's get to work.
(everyone gasps)

(switch scene to sitting room)

Lady Grantham: Dear what are we to do about our daughters:?
Lord Grantham: Do what?
Lady Grantham: Mary doesn't have babby yet
Lord Grantham: Matthew's winky doesn't work, so the doctor tells me.
Lady Grantham: Oh. Well, anyway Edith has a job in London now.
Lord Grantham: WOT WOT?

(scene at dinner)

Edith: I've got a job in London.
Dowager: (insert clever quip about women having jobs but with a longing look that suggests women should have jobs)
Branson: In Ireland nobody has jobs because the English won't let us have one.
Mary: (glares)
Matthew: Let's go have a drink ol' chap.
(new footman drops fork)
Everyone: WOT WOT?

(scene downstairs)

O'Brien: You caused the new footman to drop the fork!
Thomas: Prove it.
O'Brien: I'll kill you in your sleep.
Thomas: Nuh uh!
Anna: I thought you two were thick as thieves?
Bates: I'll kill you Thomas.

(scene in saloon)
Lord Grantham: I'll have to sack everyone to pay the bills.
Matthew: No sir I have a solution!
Lord Grantham: Nonsense!
Branson: Just listen to him please sir!
Lord Grantham: (stomps off)

(scene in bedroom)
Lady Grantham: I must have luncheon tomorrow.
Lord Grantham: Matthew saved us again but I acted quite badly to him.
Lady Grantham: Mary will handle it.
Lord Grantham: Oh good. Goodnight.
(Dowager bursts in the door)
Dowager: (insert clever quip about vaginas solving everything)
