new crush: downton abbey

Oh. my. goodness. Are you a Downton Abbey fan? I realize I’m way late to the fan club, but I’m totally loving this period-drama on PBS. My dear dad recently mentioned he’s been enjoying the show and hearing that, I was inspired to check it out. Luckily, I found the first season on Netflix and the season 2 (the current season) is available online. After two marathon evenings, I’m one episode away from finishing Season 1.

If you like Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Park or Emma, I bet you’ll love Downton Abbey.

My favorite characters so far are Anna, Bates, Matthew, Lady Sybil and Violet. Oh, and the music during the opening credits is fan.tastic. The scenery isn’t too bad either. :)

  1. Only in the last 48 hours have I ever even heard of Downton Abbey but you are the 3rd reference and I know I would love it too based on your post. Beautiful, eye-candy blog, Meredith.

  2. Oh Annika, you would love it!! I hope you get a chance to watch! Thank you for your sweet words about the blog. :) Hope to see you all soon!

  3. Meredith, I just started watching this weekend and I am HOOKED! I may have watched seven episodes non-stop. Yikes. But I’m so in love with Anna and Mr. Bates…I just want them to hurry up and be together forever! :)

  4. Bethany, I agree! Anna is so sweet and Bates so kind. I am loving Matthew more and more in the second season too! I count down the days until a new episode on Sunday nights!!
