Back for a third series. LET'S DISCUSS:


1. Lady Mary's wedding dress was beyond hideous.

2. Shirley Maclean. Just, no.

3. Drippy Lord Whatshisface and Edith.

4. Cousin Matthew being all annoying re: saving Downton.

5. New footman and American maid!

6. Mrs Hughes and THE SCARE.

7. Uppity O'Brien falling out with Thomas, the evil valetâ„¢


And other such Downton-related scandal!

Number 2- why not! She's like our Judy Dench! And they needed a brass tacks American.

In episode 1, she was OK. A feisty American, and even in episode 2, she had some nice zingers:

To cousin Matthew: "Explain to me once again, why you get all of my dead husband's money?"


But then, in episode 2, disaster stuck.

The picnic. Oh god. She sang. It was the opposite of good.

I didn't watch it when it was on TV so I'm catching up. Halfway through season 2!

My godfather plays Sir Richard Carlisle. It's hilarious seeing him being such a dick!

Love.

Iain Glen is the nuts! Also, unbelievably good in Game of Thrones. That's some awesome godfather action you have going on, minkeys.

Also, Julian Fellows has announced that he's going to write the story of how Cora and Lord Grantham met. Which will inevitably be televised, so yay.

William died! I was convinced he would pull through and Daisy would be stuck with him!

He's your godfather? Tell him I LOVED hating him! He was the WORST. Made my skin crawl.

Also tell him that he was a much better Hamlet than Mel Gibson.

He says thank you and he can't decide which is the better compliment!
7 yrs ago - Saturday 9/29/12 - 8:15:57 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'm all caught up now!

Took me less than a week

Do you think that Mrs Hughes actually is healthy? If she's not, does Mrs. Patmore know the truth?

DA almost made me cry! Telling mrs hughes that if she is still she can stay there and they'll look after her how cuuuute

Poor poor \Edith! And next week looks really exciting!

Of course, David Mitchell.

Called it.

But still so sad

I think I've decided why I love the Dowager.

"Oh, well, that is an easy caveat to accept because I am never wrong."
6 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 10/29/12 - 12:31:27 AM EST (GMT-5)
Ha i loved that line as well.
6 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 10/29/12 - 12:56:06 AM EST (GMT-5)
It's not about loving that line, per se.

Rather, it's because I am always right.

My little sister me Mr Bates this week at the 71 bus stop outside Surbiton train station.

OK, so

Newspaper editor chap = love interest for Edith, I assume? I like the way Lady E is set up to be a feminist, winning the vote for all women, but kinda wish she hadn't been chucked by a man, in order for it to happen


srsly cngaf about Matthew's fights with Lord G, Bates or Branson. Bored now.


Also;

I actually felt bad for Thomas. Even though he is so eeeeeeevil. Don't like new footman dude. He's too slick and slimy.
