The person(s) who create the Facebook version of Downton Abbey are brilliant!

They apparently can't go on holiday before filming because they aren't allowed to get a tan. I found that funny.

I actually heard somewhere that each episode costs £1million. Eeeeeek.

I agree about the hairstyles but some of the dresses I love. Mary seems to have gotten more frumpy since the first season. I love Matthew's bright blue eyes.

The hair & clothing is one of the things I love about this show. It is staying pretty true to the time it is based in. 1st episode is set in 1912 or 14 I think, and current season is 1920. Clothing & hair styles changed a lot in that time frame.

I love seeing how they react to "new" technology. The episode with the telephone was genius. Plus the curling iron that Anna was practicing with & the toaster that they were trying out. Hilarious!

That's OK, I just want to keep the suspense. I have a real dilemma now. I received my season 3 DVD from PBS this afternoon and I have to decide if I want to watch the rest of the season all at once. I would love to but then that just makes the wait until next season even longer. Decisions, decisions.

I wouldn't be able to stand the suspense!! With that temptation, I'd probably call in sick to work the next day and watch them all!!! It's bad enough that I found the link that was posted and I've been watching an episode a day during my lunch hour!!!

Reply #16 on this post (first one on page 2) has the link. If you use the Putlocker links, you're able to stream online without having to download anything. Just be sure you "continue as free user"

Also, there were no putlocker links for the last 2 episodes. With some trial and error I was able to watch them both, (and probably radically infect my computer with viruses in the process)

Here's the one I used for the last episode

The first episode was set at the sinking of the Titanic, so that would be 1912. Next week's episode is set in Sept. of 1921, a year after the cricket match.

I laughed when I saw that toaster. We used one just like it at the lake house we vacationed at when I was a kid.

DD and I started watching the entire series on DVD after Christmas.

We just finished Episode 5 of Season 3 last night.

But I think we cried more for Episode 4.
