Downton Abbey – Season One

Downton Abbey

Okay, so I’m very late to the party, but I just started watching Downton Abbey this last week and just finished season one tonight. Oh good LORD GRANTHAM! ;) This is addicting! I will no doubt be starting season two tonight as well ;) I’m hooked! Some thoughts…

I hate Thomas the footman.

I love Mr. Bates and Anna.

I LOVE Matthew Crawley. And even though I didn’t like Lady Mary at first, I LOVE her too. And them together. Even though this season ended sadly for them. I am hoping that things look up for them in season two.

I hate Mrs. O’Brien. She is evil. evil. evil.

Lady Sybil is gorgeous.

Lady Edith is unfortunate.

I can’t help but want to speak more properly when I watch this show!! haha…and I want to dress like that and have tea in the drawing room and have a man pursue me like that. Swoon…I love Pride and Prejudice and this runs along the same lines, so I think that’s why I love it so much. I am very excited to see what happens in the subsequent seasons, although, I am NOT excited to experience the uproar that everyone was upset about at the end of season four. Please don’t tell me what it is, but I am not looking forward to it.

The next season doesn’t start until next January, right? I don’t know if I can bear waiting until then! PBS, get on the BALL! haha…they know everyone loves it and won’t boycott the show because of the lateness of season five. But still…how unfair is that?!

Do you watch Downton? What do you love about it? PLEASE REMEMBER, I’ve only seen season one, so NO SPOILERS PLEASE!! ;)
