When I realized that sleep was going to evade me last night, I didn’t even bother to waste time trying to fall asleep. I was wide awake so I turned on the television and decided to attack my DVR. I had 4 episodes of Downton Abbey recorded and I figured the hushed voices and somber tone of the show would help me sleep. I was wrong.
Downton Abbey is such a good show! I was completely into it and before I knew it, it was 330 in the morning. Much like when I discovered the show last spring, I couldn’t stop watching.
Let’s talk about this season, shall we?
How much do you love Mr. Bates? The strong, silent type. Of course you have to remain strong and silent when you are in jail for murdering your bitch of a wife. I really hope he gets out soon so he can be with Anna. She is a true ride or die chick.
When Lady Edith got left at the altar I cried. Dude couldn’t speak up the night before? Or before she got dressed? Or before she showed up at the altar, her face filled with joy? I was sickened.
Ethel, the prostitute. I feel so bad for her. She had a future as a housemaid, slept with the wrong man and is now relegated to whoring to care for the dead man’s child. When she turned the boy over to his grandparents I was sobbing. Sitting up in my bed sobbing at 2am! I can’t even imagine never seeing my child again.
Thomas Barrow, the valet. Ugh! I hate him! I keep waiting for him to get his just desserts. And you know he will!
All of the characters are great. If you haven’t watched you should start with season one. You will be hooked.
The other day I decided that if I ever remarry I shall call my husband “his lordship.” Also, I’ve decided that we all need to start dressing for dinner. Not tux and tails, but we could all afford to step it up a notch, okay dahling?
Do you watch Downton Abbey? Who are your favorite characters?
