Gig103: The Dowager gets great lines though, even more this season than last, so I have no idea what the article is talking about being bored of Maggie Smith.
jayhawk88: I'm sure it's a good show and all, and I'll eventually get around to watching it, but I'm almost certain this has reached the IT Crowd or Firefly level of "Internet Good", where you watch it, and it's good, but you kind of feel guilty for not enjoying it at the level where you have to go make a Twitter or Facebook post about it./Not trolling Firefly fans, admit it, it's only "that good" because you can't have more
duckpoopy: Matthew dies and Mary has a baby boy.
cryinoutloud: /Don't have PBS, so maybe I'll get to see the third season someday.
KatjaMouse: cryinoutloud: /Don't have PBS, so maybe I'll get to see the third season someday.How does someone simply "not get" PBS. Isn't the point of PBS that everyone gets it?
cryinoutloud: I confess that I watched the entire first season before I noticed that it was "Downton" and not "Downtown." Well, that explains why they don't live in the middle of town!/Don't have PBS, so maybe I'll get to see the third season someday.
No Such Agency: After watching "Gosford Park" I wanted to murder most of the characters (mainly the upstairs ones of course)... why would I watch a whole ongoing series in the same vein? Also, was that "Titanic" thing a reference to Upstairs, Downstairs or what?
JustHereForThePics: duckpoopy: Matthew dies and Mary has a baby boy.Fathered by the Turk?
electronsexparty: FTA: 1) Each time the scene shifts to Bates in prison, you hope for an Oz-style riot.2) Whenever Matthew protests he can't inherit money from his ex-fiancee's father because it would be "wrong," you imagine Lady Mary braining him with a vase.Yes. Both of these. Goddamn it, Matthew. You'd live with Mary hating you for not saving her family rather than take an inheritance that was given to you? (Though, shiat, they had a perfectly good other mansion.)And, I hope Bates gets killed in prison so we can just be done with his sorry story. I used to want Anna and him to have a happy ending, but the misery has just dragged on too long.
Meethos: As god as my witness, I always thought it was Downtown Abby./Never actually read the name!
cryinoutloud: it's funny how my rather impoverished town wasn't able to keep the channel after the switch, but the two more affluent towns on both sides of us got the whole upgrade, and now have the 3 or 4 PBS stations that were promised to everyone when they were telling us how great the digital changeover would be.
wildstarr: I clearly haven't watch enough.What's Downton Abbey?
theurge14: WHEN DOSE MARY HAVE BABBY
teto85: theurge14: WHEN DOSE MARY HAVE BABBY...SPOILERS
teto85: theurge14: WHEN DOSE MARY HAVE BABBYAround the time of Matthew's death. Mum and baby live. Sybil's death in childbirth is wrenching and will probably be cut for US consumption, but they'll have the fights about how Tom is going to raise her. And later on they all visit someone in Scotland who went through the same bad investments as Robert but lost it all. And Edith gets radicalized, becomes a suffragette and writer and falls for her publisher but he can't get a divorce because his wife is in the asylum. And Anna and John get back together at the end. The Xmas special at the end of Series 3 (Season 3 in the US) is even more fun.
theurge14: End Credits
DoblerMeyer: I decided to give it a shot. Maybe it's just one of those things you have to start watching from the first episode, because I was bored out of my mind!
Crewmannumber6: KatjaMouse: cryinoutloud: /Don't have PBS, so maybe I'll get to see the third season someday.How does someone simply "not get" PBS. Isn't the point of PBS that everyone gets it?Maybe she means that she doesn't understand PBS/sometimes I don't either
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:[highly accurate compression of 20 hours of TV]
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
