Downton Abbey (no spoilers included)

Like Tree5Likes

The HDMI input on our ishttastic expensive stupid TV is messed up. I hate this TV and wish it would just go ahead and DIE so we can get a new one. Can you tell I don't like our TV?

If I threaten Blockbuster with the wrath of the curly girls that might just work.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
PBS.com is also streaming season 2 until the 5th (I think). That's how I usually watch it. They post the day after it airs. Do you Netflix too? Season 1 is there too. I might also check your local library. Ours has season 1 already and it's a small town. I LOVE my library for having good TV on DVD.
I don't know if there's a thread. I did a search and this came up first so that's as far as I got.



Do we have a Downton discussion thread at all?

I think most of you are just into the early episodes of Season 3, which I watched already (don't worry I hate spoilers and won't say anything). Why does this show have so few episodes? I want more DT!!

First time it said I was Robert, Earl of Grantham.

Second time, it gave me the answer I wanted:

Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham.
We need a discussion thread on Downton. I have held off on watching season three specifically so I could discuss it as it came on and no one is talking about it.
Poodlehead and greenjumper like this.
I really wanted a discussion thread too, but it seems too tricky to avoid the spoilers. Our UK curlies will have seen all of season 3 already, as well as any in the US who have bought or downloaded it. Would we expect them to keep track of which episode just aired, and what happened?

I've accidentally encountered a couple of MAJOR spoilers already, just from being on the internet, and wish I could have avoided them. (Or is it better to be prepared? ) Maybe we should just wait until all of season 3 has aired in the US, and then talk about it?
I'm in the US and I've encountered 1 major spoiler as well!

Idk, maybe we could have two threads? That could get confusing though...
I don't think all of the episodes will have aired in the US mid-February. It'll be a little difficult to talk about the complexities of each episode if we wait until the weeks after some of the episodes have aired.
I know, I REALLY want to discuss it! In fact, the last 2 Mondays I've talked Downton on the phone for about forty minutes to my friend who is also following it but I don't want to accidentally spoil it for anyone online, or encounter any more spoilers myself. Last week another friend, who is Scottish, accidentally told me (in person!) a MAJOR development which has yet to happen... she didn't mean to, she just isn't keeping track of what has aired here.
I'm so tempted to just get season 3 and watch the whole thing, but I rather enjoy looking forward to it.

Dear Downton:

Thanks for ripping out my soul. I didn't need it anyway.

XOXO

Guess I was wrong! All of the episodes have aired and it's only mid-February. I guess I forgot to add in the fact that Downton has 5-10 episode seasons whereas most of the shows that I watch have 18-24 episodes per season. Also, it seems like PBS sometimes airs two episodes in one night...

Can't wait to see what the story lines will be like next season.
Okay, can we start talking about Season 3 now?!?!

By the way, you also get all the best lines, so we hope you're ready for immortality. But you should really look up the definition of 'weekend.'"
Just finished season 3 and oh my word. Did we have a thread here that included spoilers?!?!

Do we? I think the OP of this thread should edit it to be called "Downton Discussion, Major Spoilers!" Now that all the episodes have aired. THEN we can talk!
Nooo, we have only had three episodes!
