I have a new love in my life. I’m not being dramatic, and I know I’m late jumping onto this particular bandwagon! I’m not a tv watcher so that’s what makes it even sweeter. If you haven’t jumped onboard this PBS masterpiece theater train…..do so immediately! As in ASAP. Run….don’t walk to your nearest streaming device.
What can I say about Downton Abbey? I love period pieces, but it’s been a long time since I’ve been taken captive by one of them. Can I gush for a minute…..I love the cinematography, the scenery, the styles and fashion, the visit to another time period (early 1900′s), the british culture, the history, the accents and quite surprisingly the storyline. It’s clean, modest, appropriate and in the world we live in, it’s nice to visit a place and time where manners and modesty still meant something.
I’m sure that’s part of the allure! Downton Abbey is a breath of fresh air on the screen. And if you know of any other series similar that I’d enjoy, please tell me. Hubby is hooked too. Last night my teen daughter lingered around and started asking questions. Sure won’t hurt for her to learn a little bit of history in disguise.
So please don’t give any spoilers. I’ve only just finished season 2. Currently Downton Abbey just started it’s third season last month. I streamed season 1 on Netflix and season 2 on Hulu Plus. All of season 3 is On Demand on my dvr.
TELL ME: Are you a Downton Abbey fan? How long have you been watching? What do you love about it?
