Drama at Downton

Just a reminder that everyone's favorite period series Downton Abbey returns to PBS this Sunday, January 8th.  I was lucky enough to attend a screening of the first episode and Q&A with some members of the cast last month.  I also was a naughty girl and then watched the entire season 2 online because I couldn't wait. You are in for many drama filled episodes that deal with World War I and the changes it causes at the house. Of course, the best quips come from Dame Maggie Smith who plays the Dowager Duchess of Grantham and I can only imagine how author Julian Fellowes comes up with them. "What's a weekend?"

where did you watch it online? I've never seen the show before and think I would like it. I saw that the first 4 full episodes are at PBS.com. I hate to start if I can't watch them all. Is there another website? thanks!! Love your blogs

We have already had the new series of Downton Abbey in New Zealand. It's great! It was the only TV show that I got excited about last year.

I don't watch much TV but under the order of my girlfriend who is a TV producer, I watched Downton Abbey for the first time in late December. My assistant and I were to go to our Interieurs Christmas party. Everyone had gone ahead and my husband was to pick us up...3 hours late... I suggested that we make ourself comfortable on our Julien sectional, turn the computer monitor around and download the show my friend never stopped talking about....well, I was hooked and watched every show back to back. Finished the last one last night and went into withdrawal. Cannot wait until to morrow night. Love everything about it but mostly the dialogues and the fashion. What incredible style and class, so refreshing!

This PBS program is my fave and I can't wait to watch Season II. Nice you got a heads up and have already seen it. BTW, the date in your post should be January 8, not the 9th. Love your blog!

I LOVE Downton Abbey, can't wait for Season 2 to start!! (It's up there with Mad Men as my fave series). I bought the Season 1 DVD in the fall and watched every episode back to back in 2 days. I was instantly hooked. Maggie Smith is absolutely hilarious!!
