    Default Downton Abbey: ITV Programme with Rebroadcast on PBS

    There seems to be enough interest in this British period drama to warrant a thread of its own.

    I've enjoyed it. A lot like Upstairs Downstairs decades ago.

    if you have Netflix, you can stream it and then catch the new eps.

    From Wikipedia:

    Downton Abbey is a British television period drama series, produced by British media company Carnival Films for the ITV network. The series is set during the late Edwardian era (after Edward VII's death and the First World War) on the fictional estate of Downton Abbey in North Yorkshire, and features an ensemble cast. It was created and principally written by actor and writer Julian Fellowes, and premiered on ITV on 26 September 2010.



    The series is set in the fictional Downton Abbey, the Yorkshire country house of the Earl and Countess of Grantham, and follows the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants in the reign of King George V. The first series spans two years before the Great War, beginning with news of the sinking of the Titanic, which sets the story in motion. The second series covers the years 1916 to 1919 and the 2011 Christmas Special December 1919 to January 1920.

    I have just finished watching the reruns of the original season (or “series”) on PBS and am now waiting for the second series to begin January 8 on PBS’ Masterpiece.

    Yeah, this series surprised me with the amount of tension it can provoke with a few simple lines and plot twists. It has me on the edge of my seat every episode!

    If we're talking about the same thing, she did seem to have a momentary second thought before that happened.

    I can't figure out why she and Thomas are connected?

    OMO I HATE Thomas and O Brien, I am so glad they are getting rid of him in S2-- and I can only hope that OBrien learns her damn lesson now.

    Thanks Gilli I did wonder what in the hell was so unbreakable about it. I mean, has no one ever heard of a loophole?

    Well, the one I'm most familiar with took 2,000 years to break, required electromagnetism, a Frozen Donkey Wheel, and two sides, one dark, one light.
