Downton Abbey!

Dame Maggie Smith as Lady Violet
We've been  Downton Abbey junkies since day one and we counted down to last week's showing of Season Three episode one! I am as I type, watching it again as a prelude to episode two tonight. It is amazing how much more you see when you watch again. What a good story of an era that has long since passed.

Life at Downton is full of human intrigue, class distinction, passion and social commentary of the day. The wit of Maggie Smith as the Dowager Countess of Grantham is priceless. She has the best asides than anyone I have had the pleasure of watching. Whether as Professor McGonagall in Harry Potter or this grand dame, the undertones are clear and she cuts to the chase. 

If you have not tuned in give it a try. Of course, starting on season one is your best bet to get the most out of the story.

Last week and opulent wedding...there is another wedding coming soon...will it be tonight?


  1. Oh I too have been a D.A. fan since day 1. Poor Edith!!! Did Bates really do it? It's all too good!

    Have a winter wonderland weekend!

  2. I just adore Maggie Smith's character! She really does have some of the best lines!
