What I would have missed...

I'm a late convert to Downton Abbey. I know... it's been the talk of blogs for the last two years, but my husband wasn't interested in watching it, so like a foolish ninny, I didn't make the effort to try to watch it on my own. This 3rd season I was determined to get him won over, but after 10 minutes in on the first episode, he gallantly handed me the remote and wished me a jolly time watching without him. (Insert an "Oh, Robert" kind of sigh and downward glance.)

I'd debated the amount of time it would take for me to try to "catch up" by watching Seasons 1 and 2. Spending a few minutes on the Internet speed viewing some "recap" videos actually gave me a good grasp of the storyline and characters.  But deep down I knew that if I was going to do this right, I would have to invest in it and take the plunge with a totally immersed commitment.

I'm so glad I did, because I would have missed all of this:


The Edwardian Clothing of 1912 to 1914.
One of my favorite periods.





oh my, the hats!



Devoted Sisters...




The Fox Hunt 



with more wonderful clothing...






The lustful attraction...



and THE Scandal of it all...



The Amazing Interiors of Downton






 The Tablescapes




The Flower Show



 The Sibling Rivalry



 Smoking and Plotting



The Meany



When keeping your mouth shut causes so many problems...
  


Wistful Angst
(with more wonderful interiors)



On again...off again...



The Bickering



Priceless One liners...


with more interiors...



Tea for Two...or One


I realized that I could watch on my laptop with Netflix, but only, Season 1. They don't have Season 2 yet on streaming, so I'm joining Hulu to get Season 2. If you want to get up to date, it's possible. Do tell...are you a fan from the beginning, or are you just a little late to the ball?

Wish me luck and Tally Ho!
