You Probably know who these beautiful people are. And if you don’t, let me say….
….WHAT ROCK HAVE YOU BEEN LIVING UNDER AND WHY DON’T YOU WATCH DOWNTON ABBEY AND IF YOU’RE NOT WATCHING IT HOW ARE WE EVEN STILL FRIENDS?!
Okay, sorry for caps lock. It’s obnoxious, I know. But it just had to be said. Also, allow me to gloat for a moment: I first posted about Downton Abbey here. That was April of last year, not long after I finished watching Series 1 on Netflix (for the first time. A second viewing ensued as I anxiously waited for series 2). Nobody had a clue. But now, everyone ever on my Facebook is suddenly obsessed with this show and I just think, well, I think I should get some credit here. Yes, a little pat on the back maybe.
I watched all of Series 2 online because it aired in the UK in September and after watching the first series last April, there was no way I could wait until the US January air date. No sir. No way at all. Thank heavens for sketchy semi-illegal websites that air TV shows before their air dates! So, basically I’m in love. They start filming Series 3 next week. Thank heavens!
And I’m thinking Lady Mary for Halloween? Yes? Yes, I think so!
Warning: If all my friends go as Lady Mary this year for Halloween there will be consequences. So pick a different Donwton character and move on, kids. Nothing to see here.
Since I’m obviously a trend setter, I’m going to say this: if you haven’t yet become obsessed with Downton, it’s about time. Stop reading this and go find Series 1 and plan on not doing anything else for the next 8 hours or so while it consumes you. If you have never seen it and don’t plan on watching it, then I have no choice but to de-friend you. (okay, I won’t really de-friend you. But you know, watch Downton).
And after you’ve watched it, or if you’ve already watched it (especially if like me, you’ve seen every episode including the Christmas special) please feel free to leave a comment so we can squeal together over how amazing this show is.
