You know, people who don't care for costume dramas like us would think we are quite mad for
finding Downton Abbey as funny as we do.
This week was a perfect example of this.
As I watched it a second time I thought the whole radio discussion was very clever.
It's a fad. Never catch on.
(This was me and the internet, I confess)
Miss Patmore wondering if the King could hear them.
(No, he can't)
Lord Grantham is being especially silly and I don't mind it
while I wonder if you all think it is a flaw.
The whole flirting with his dog part was funny but made him seem
very unaware and rude. They have made him loving from time to time and when he is an aloof Brit it make me sad.
Violet is a big tease.
Mary and Lord Gilliam (sp). I liked him less this week than
every before. Why is that?
Oh yes. And the unspeakables that Anna had to go buy.
I loved that she told Mary she felt so judged she wanted to go back and buy a dozen.
I really do adore Cora's maid. She is a fine actor and written well.
Cora shoved her robe at her this week and that bothered me.
Now I better learn her name.
Anna was sweet to Barrows. I wonderful if that will come in handy.
I like Rose and Tom. Together. But don't see it happening.
I want Tom to be content at Downton.
That Edith's family does not catch on is ridiculous. But they rarely
pay any attention to her.
Mary telling Edith that she was an idiot was just plain nasty.
Poorly done Mary.
Carson and Hughes. Sweet. Carson does not like to be at odds with her.
Mrs. Hughes is wise and steady. I like that quality. I want to be like her.
I'm a fan of that.
Oh...and the big cliffhanger....
Not funny. Dramatic!
What did you think?
Does Downton make you smile like it does me?
