downton abbey

We got home yesterday morning and one of the first things I saw when I walked in the door was a book that was due the day before. Oops. So once we were all awake, dressed, and fed (at 4:30 in the afternoon, don’t judge), we moseyed on over to the library to return it. I also let the boys play around a pick a few books while I sat and watched for 20 minutes or so. Because, why not? They were being great and it sure beat trying to chase them around the playground.

When we checked out our books I was informed we had a DVD on hold. A surprise! I love surprises. It was volume 2 of Downton Abbey, a BBC miniseries. A friend introduced us to it and we are pretty hooked. There are only 6 episodes, and as of last night we are half way through them. Who knew that the lives of the aristocracy of the English countryside and their household help could be so intriguing?

My recommendation is that you snag it on Netflix or your library or wherever you go to find cheap home entertainment as soon as you can.

  1. This was on TV a while ago as a part of the masterpiece classic series and I watched the whole thing. It was only the first half though, so I’ve been really curious about what happens. I guess I’ll have to check and see if my library has the second half.

  2. Lizzie, the more I get to know you through your blog the more I see our similar tastes. I love all things PBS and they had this program online a few months ago. However, it was not the complete series so I’m excited to see how it ends! Right now they have Masterpiece Mystery, also great fun.

  3. Just yesterday this was recommended to us by another friend. Can’t wait to check it out.

    A series we just finished and loved was BBC’s Larkrise to Candleford. When you need another good, clean English series, check that one out.

  4. Hmm, that sounds intriguing! It’s always good to have new shows to watch. :0) Speaking of shows, I just re-watched the season finale of Fringe and while it made a lot more sense the second time, I’m still completely baffled by the last scene. I guess we’ll have to wait until September to figure anything out, but I hope it will make sense then!!
