Down with Downton

I daresay I am hooked on "Downton Abbey." I know I'm late to the party, but better late than never! I just signed up for a free week of HuluPlus just to see DA. I have watched the first four episodes of Season 1. I doubt I can cram in the rest of Season 1 and all of Seasons 2 & 3 before my free week of HuluPlus is up, but I sure will try! After the free-week trial period is up, Hulu will cost $7.99 a month. If I have to pay just one month, it'll be worth it. NetFlix is about the same cost, but they only send out one DVD at a time -- and last time I was a member their streaming service wasn't so great (could be updated by now, but I'm really not into looking into it) -- and episodes on iTunes cost more than $7.99 for a Season, so I think I'm getting the best deal.

I love the way the women dress on the show. It's 1912. I was born waaaaay too late! I used to think I would have loved to be an adult in the 50s with all the full-skirted June Cleaver outfits, but now I'm thinking the early 1900s would have suited me well.


  1. I netflixed the first two seasons, and watched the third on TV. My faves are Violet, Mrs. Hughes, and Tom Branson. Just wait until you hit the 1920s. Fashion-wise, the best in my opinion.

  2. Award coming your way...Check out my blog today.

  3. I'm happy .... see you are delighted with your show .. greetings from Indonesia

    I was follow you please follow me back.. :)

  4. your info very nice...
    greet from kindle..

  5. Suse, thanks for the award. I'll follow up later today. Update on the show: I'm now nearly finished with Season 2 and will finish that up today. Very excited that Comcast is running Watchability Week this week and I should be able to watch Season 3 for free too! Talk about a DA marathon. My favorites are Mary, Violet, Mr Carson, Mrs Hughes. I have a soft spot for Anna and Mr Bates. O'Brien and Tom are despicable but that just means they are great actors! Poor Edith. And Sybil is so pretty. Okay, so really, I like everyone on the show!

  6. Loonysuse sent me. Now that I know you like Downton Abbey, I shall follow you and hope you join me at You might want to avoid my Downton Abbey posts because they will give away plot points from future seasons. I am a Downton Abbey nerd.
