If you enjoy British humor (like I do!), you'll have a good laugh at this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5dMlXentLw

There are two parts, so be sure to watch the second as well.
Rockislander, that was the best parody of DA I've seen yet! Loved that Patsy and Edina were in it. Thanks!

LOVE Downton Abbey! My mother got me into it and I'm so glad that she did. It's such costume porn-I want to wear those clothes! LOL

Love Matthew-sigh.

Matthew is wonderful, and I love Mary's development this season. It makes her better suited for Matthew, and overall just a stronger individual. Maggie Smith will always be my favorite, though!

I love Downtown Abby. The Dowager Countess makes me laugh. Matthew's mom makes me cringe. I hate when she's around.

And poor Edith. At some point someone has to love her, right?

Oh I know!! I was *so* excited to see Pats and Eds, sweetie darling! Did you watch the Part 2 parody, too? So funny!

OK I finished season 1

I just finished season 1 and I am going to have to put SPOILER ALERT in the title because I have to talk about season 1.

I see that season 2 is available on Amazon Kindle for $1.99 an episode and rather than wait for the discs to come in the mail I am probably going to watch them all in the next 24 hours. I can't stand it. I have to see season 2.

Now for the spoilers... I CAN'T STAND Thomas and glad that at the end of season 1 he claimed he was going to be leaving to go in the medical core. Not sure if he will really leave or not, but they were eventually planning to fire him anyway...
Mrs. O'brian...I haven't liked her either, from the very beginning, but to see how far she went (placing the soap on the floor next to the tub) when she thought her Ladyship was looking for a new ladies maid for herself.
I almost cried when the tragedy occurred and they found out it was going to be a boy. That would have solved the whole estate problem.
I watched a little 10 minute video that shows a bit of the history of the house where the show is shot.

For those of you who have seen it, feel free to discuss it and don't worry about spoiling anything for me. I may watch all of season 2 before this night is even over. LOL. I think there are 6 or 7 episodes in season 2, at 40 minutes per episode. I can probably get all those in before going to sleep tonight!!

I see where season 2 was just now shown in January and February of this year 2012. SO I guess season 3 won't be on until next January!! Oh what torture to have to wait for that!!

I wish I had discovered this show once there were 5 or 6 seasons already on film so I could keep watching it even longer!!

Heh, it's definitely worth the $ imo - but don't forget the Xmas episode(s)! So it's actually 8 at least.

Yes, it should be Jan, that's how they've been running them - as someone said upthread it runs in Britain in Sept. and then here in Jan./Feb. though the DVDs were available as the first episode of series 2 aired, so there's a *bit* less waiting, and that's through official channels, if you know what I mean, heh.

I won't drop spoilers on you, as I hate spoilers. Suffice it to say you're not alone in the Thomas hatred, of course. I know someone who thinks he's got a human core and feels badly for him, but.... we don't so much agree.

10 episodes

Including the Christmas episode there are 10 I think in season 2. I have watched the first 6 in season 2.

I think I may hate Mr Bates wife more than I hate Thomas. At least Thomas has come to be less of an A hole since he is back from the war but he is still not very likable.

I may not be able to finish season 2 tonight but I will be done by lunch tomorrow for sure.

LOVE IT!!

NO no no. I don't hate Mr Bates. I needed an apostrophe in that sentence to make it more understandable. I hate Mr Bates' wife.

I think Mr Bates is one of the best characters on the show.

Well I can't even say that really because I love almost all of the ppl on the show, except Thomas and Mrs. O'Brian AND Mr Bates' wife. The lady who plays Mr Bates' wife played on some other show I watch but I can't remember what show it is I have seen her on.

I hope she dies in a car accident or something so Anna and Mr Bates can get married but nothing like that has happened yet.

The last episode I just finished watching is the one where Mr Bates' wife realizes she was tricked by the newspaper man (Mary's fiance') and there was a death on the show. I won't say who exactly just in case some folks haven't watched that far in yet.

Oooooh, oh my bad I think I totally missed the word 'wife' in there, heh. Well, what's not to hate about Vera? She's hateful! Also, evil.

Kind of met her match in Carlyle there, eh? Heh. Keeeeep watching!

favorite quote from that

My there certainly are a lot of you. How do you keep them all straight?
There is a prelude at the beginning of each episode for idiots.

Bates' wife played Queen Catherine (Henry's first
Wife on the Tudors). She was also Dexter's nanny in season 5.
