Downton Abbey- Your New Favorite Thing


I always assume everybody already watches Downton Abbey;
however, I have grown increasingly alarmed
to learn that some of you still have not jumped in to the series.

Here's the deal...
you need to.

You, just, really do.

Watch this clip
and I double dog dare you to resist
the lure of Downton.



The fabulous plots,
the costumes,
the gorgeous English backdrop...
Maggie Smith's hilarious one liners.

Everything about Downton Abbey is just so perfect.

It's like Pride & Prejudice meets Sophia Coppola meets The Titanic.


If you thought Will & Kate brought England back on the style map,
this is going to be the next (and dare I say, larger?) wave of English style
to sweep the pop-culture scene & re-establish the British Empire.

The final straw to convince you that you need to watch it?


It's reportedly the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge's favorite show.

  5. Its on my Netflix on-demand- I'm waiting for a good afternoon of nothing to do to get obsessed. I think this weekend may be perfect for it!

  7. I get hyperactive on Sundays waiting for the next episode.
    It has become a most necessary part of my life.

  10. Stinkin heck. I had been wanting to watch it, and I knew it would be amazing, but I hadnt carved out the time to find it and sit down and get all caught up ... until I saw season 1 at the library here :) The time just kind of carved itself out.

    Then I reeeeally wanted season 2, but for one reason or another couldn't get it online, so yesterday I couldnt believe it when season 2 dvd appeared at the library!! I was the first person to ever check out those dvds. :D

  11. I love the show. I have spent the last two weeks catching up and now I can't believe I have to wait till Sunday. Maybe I should check my library for remaining shows of Season 2.

  12. Sounds like a great show. I keep missing it. I might have to breakdown and spend an afternoon catching up.

  14. I have been DYING to watch the show since it came out. DYING!!!!!!!!! I just haven't had a chance to do it. I'm so sad. I know when I finally do see it it's all I'm going to blog about. How could I not? Then the rest of the time I'll be trying to convince my husband to move to England. And wear top hats.

  15. We have SO got to start watching that show! Netflix has the first season (?) on instant, so it's on my list.

  16. I tried to explain this show to some of M's FEMALE co-workers who aren't watching it and they basically said they thought it sounded boring. And then a little {LARGE} piece of me died. BORING?!? It is ANYTHING but boring. I love it.

  17. I love Downton Abbey!! I love Mary, even though she can be a huge brat. Maggie Smith might be my very favorite though.

  18. I think we are going to start watching this show tonight!

  19. Oh I so love watching Downton & my husband watched it with me as one of my Vday Gifts. Honestly I love that William and Catherine watch it also.

  20. Not only am I obsessed but this show even locked in my anti-most-anything-British-because-it's-probably-like-Austen husband! And I've totally noticed more Edwardian inspired fashion on Pinterest since it became popular. *sighs with joy*

  21. I wish there were a Downton Abbey club, like book club. So we can talk about it all the time! I literally JUST posted that on facebook like 5 minutes ago. I want a rainy day to re-watch the whole series again!

  22. Just watched the two-hour show from Sunday (hoping that it's not the season finale yet) and will be rewatching it again tonight... Love everything about this show - the acting, the dialogue, the fashions, the interiors, the plots... What is not to love?
    xxoo

  24. You're quite right about Downton being the next big British style crush overseas - the theme tune was used as the backing music for Ralph Lauren's runway show yesterday! (I swooned when I read this on Twitter.)

  25. yeah, I still haven't joined in on this but I absolutely intend to!!

  27. I am so in love with this show. I found a link so I could watch the rest of Season 2 in the US, and now I'm regretting it because I really can't wait for the next season.

  28. The deepest sort of love I can have for a show, I've bestowed upon Downton Abbey. I've also started luring people into it's clutches. Soooo good.

  29. Dame Maggie Smith brings it every time! My favorite line of the Countess... "what is a weekend?"
    The last time I was in Dublin a few months ago, Dowtown Abbey was actually on the telly! I was so stoked! Pints and Downtown Abbey! Sheer brilliance! :)

  30. A friend of mine was telling me about this show. I'll have to jump on it after I finish some of the series I'm entirely engulfed in right now.
