Granny for President
Last night's Downton Abbey had me laughing out loud. I know you all just love every line Violet speaks...but last night I found her incredibly funny....and wise.
I happen to agree with her ideas about the giving away of our power and voice and freedom to the government....so when she finally explained her reasons for resisting the takeover of the local hospital I was nodding my head and thinking about our schools...etc. Not to get all political..which I hate. I will just say, I think Granny was coming from a place of wisdom and forethought.
Other quick thoughts and faves from last night;
Anna and Mary rushing to London.
Happy. So happy.
Matthew Goode showing up and being so stoic...but I know
this kind of boring persona can not last long. He needs his hair mussed tho.
Daisy being too bossy. I didn't like it.
Still made the kind farmer is gone. Dumb wife. Dumb Edith.
I can't stand everyone being so mean to Thomas.
I like his Aunt so much. (forgetting her name)
Lots of shots from above to show opulence last night.
The dialog is spiced with the sayings of the day. It was especially noticeable last night.
This show is going out on a glorious high note.
Thanks Downton. Beautiful in so many ways.
What do you think?
What did I forget?
