OK, time to Downton Abbey Talk
If you haven't seen it yet, you might want to come back
I was surprised at how many responded in my post yesterday
saying they have not seen it yet.
It seems like everywhere I go,
people are watching it, even husbands
(must clarify, not my husband)
Some people have wondered what it's about
and what the fuss is about
If they are missing out
I admit, I started watching it
last winter when I was pumping and looking for something to watch,
Everyone was talking about it
I watched most of them on Netflix
and caught up online
The first show, the very first episode,
was good til one particular scene, if I remember it was towards the end,
it was a gay/sex scene (TV rated)
and I was shocked.
I thought, why didn't anyone tell me?
then, I thought about all the lovely ladies
that were watching this show,
especially one of my favorites ladies
and then, thought if Barbara likes it, then it must get better.
and it did
There has not ever been another scene like that one since.
Makes me wonder if they maybe were going to go a different route
with the show and decided not to.
about this past weekend's show!
My favorite part:
When Matthew kissed Mary, the night before their wedding, and,
being the perfect gentleman he is, he did not disappoint, he kept his eyes closed!!
Mary, on the other hand, being true to her character, did not.
(keep her eyes closed)
I was only disappointed they didn't show more of the wedding.
What did you think of the dress?
made me happy we don't live in the 1920's
It's pretty, I guess, but so plain, which I guess must have been the style
which is actually one of the big reasons I love the show so much,
showing the styles and everything from that era of time
which, I guess, makes the dress beautiful!
Did you follow that?
I loved the part where Mary asks her father if he's happy,
and he responds
"I'm so happy my chest will explode."
Made me tear up.
And how funny is it that they picked
Shirley MacLaine to play Mrs. Levinson?
I thought she was the perfect pick!
and my favorite line about her was Grandmama (Mrs Crawley)
talking to Mary about Mrs. Levinson, saying,
"She looks as if she will bury us all!"
What do you think about Bates now?
He might have a dark side that only he knows about
(and his dead ex-wife)
Where do you think they will all go?
Do you think they will lose Downton Abbey?
(they can't, right? It's the name of the show)
My reasons for liking Downton Abbey:
the era of time
the relationships between the rich and poor
the relationships between the help and the rich
the chivalry of the men, the men, (with the exception of a couple)
have outstanding character.
I love a good strong man
(like my husband)
Why do you like Downton Abbey?
My curious readers, that have not watched
would like to know!
