The second series of Downton Abbey began this past Sunday, and I am already feeling impatient for the next installments. The only problem is that I am due to fly back to the States before the series concludes. Discordant release dates for various films and miniseries often interfere with my viewing schedule.
I don't want to give anything away, but so far far there have been plot developments I've liked while others have annoyed me. Maggie Smith is genius as always. I was so thrilled she received an Emmy for her work on the show. As time goes on, I find myself increasingly smitten with this fellow:
I'm also eager to visit Downton Abbey, or Highclere Castle as it's known in 'real life.' Did you know that the current Lord and Lady Carnarvon still reside there, although it is at times open to the public? Can you imagine waking up every day to this?
Finally, I want Mary's dresses. All of them.
Are you watching Downton Abbey? Will you be watching?
