I just watched the last 5 episodes of Downton Abbey, Season 1, on Netflix, pretty much back-to-back. This series certainly lives up to its reputation—the character development is very well done. I needed a mental and physical break this weekend, and this show was “Just the ticket” for a lazy Saturday. Which, coincidentally, was a phrase apparently in use in the early 1900′s, along with “Put that in your pipe and smoke it.“
Even though Season 2 has already aired in the UK, it looks like the season has just begun here. The great news is that episodes 1 & 2 are already available on pbs.org. I know what I’m watching tomorrow.
