Well, we’ve finally done it.
After months of saying we’d start, we actually sat down together two nights ago and pressed Play.
Yes, that’s right. We’ve started watching Downton Abbey…and we’re hooked.
It takes a lot of willpower each night to actually go to bed rather than stay up all night watching the entire first and second seasons. I guess it is more fun to spread out the viewing experience; it’s always a little depressing when you finish a great series.
Our most recent TV series marathons were for Dead Like Me (a 2003 Showtime series about a group of hilarious grim reapers) and Twin Peaks (a murder mystery with a hint of sci fi and a lot of weird…oh, and Trey MacDougal from Sex and the City). Both shows only ran two seasons and were followed up with disappointing feature films. But if you haven’t seen either of these shows, check them out on Netflix!
Now, I must get back to my husband. The Crawley family is waiting.
