    Will they free Mr. Bates??? Poor Daisy I just love her. After hearing about Matthew it makes me sad. However Mary will survive. Poor Edith has no life. Sybil I just loved her. I am worried about Bates. :happytv:

    One of our local PBS stations had an all day marathon here today. :thumbsup2 I meant to post about it so others could have recorded it too. But, I was running late this morning & didn't have time to post before leaving. :( I have to check & see if all the shows recorded. :hyper: Less to watch on my PC. Now all I have to get is Season 1 online.

    Also a fan of this great show! Just wondering if any of you DA fans have watched London Hospital and if so, what do you all think about it?

    Thanks for the book recommendation. I'm going to check it out. I read the book about highclare (where downton is filmed) and about lady Almina. I found that one fascinating.

    Can't wait for tonight.

    Another great book is the Chronicles of Downton Abbey. (A New Era.) it is the official companion to all three series and I would highly recommend it. I got it for my mum for Christmas on amazon- was £20 but I got it for £8... Bargain!!!

    Another great series (debuted today in the UK) is Mr Selfridges. It is about the American businessman who came to the UK to build his huge department store Selfridges. Definitely in Downton Abbey's league so look out for it! It is also set in approx. the same time era as Downton Abbey.

    Can I ask where you watched the 2nd season?

    I've never watched and I got the 1st one on Netflix but didn't see S2.

    Wow! That was worth the wait. I am so glad Edith is getting married. There was so much to absorb I think I need to watch it again.

    I watched both season one and two on DVD from the library.

    Season 2 is available on Amazon instant video. I think the whole season was around $12-15 or so.

    Loving Season 3 so far- glad I managed to be unspoiled. Matthew needs to take that inheritance $$ and save Downton!!

    I am glad too. She always seems to be overlooked- but she is actually very sweet. Its a relief Mary finally got married too. I just kept thinking 'will she? Won't she?' I thought something bad would happen!

    We watched it this weekend on Hulu. They offer 1 week free (not sure if we might keep it, DH thinks he might like it for awhile).

    I also called a local video rental store and they have it, but it was out this weekend so we went with Hulu. The Library may have it (but I am sure it will have a long waiting list here).

    Hulu had all of Season 2 and we just watched it all day long and ended in time for the start of Season 3.
