Cheerio, pip-pip, and all that rot

(In my head, I’m writing with a proper British accent.)

I’m afraid all of my golden writing hours are now consumed with watching Downton Abbey.  As per usual, I am a bit late to party.  I’ve been hearing all of the accolades associated with this broadcast, and my curiosity got the best of me.


I am now quite hooked.

And so is Fiddledaddy.

In fact, just this evening, we watched the final 3 episodes of Season 1.  ALL IN A ROW.  I remarked, “Darling, it’s just like before we bore children, and spent an entire New Years Eve viewing a marathon of “Real World – Seattle”.

Yes.  It was just like that.

And now I have to avoid all social media for fear that Season 2 will be ruined for me.

Anyone else hopelessly hooked?

  1. Yes. I watched all of Season 1 in an afternoon at my computer. Followed by Season 2 the next day. Positively KILLED me waiting for this season to begin.

  2. I am in LURV with Downton Abbey! I watch it every Monday on While I fold my Mt. Everest of laundry from the previous week. It’s a good routine. Glad you’ve joined the party!

  3. LOVE THIS SHOW and like you came to it late but after a weekend without hubby I was all caught up. Now the problem is that I can’ stay awake long enough to watch it Sunday so I’m alway a week behind and need to catch up sometime during the week.

  4. I just started watching a few weeks ago as well. Watched all of season one with the hubby in about a week or so. Then he went on a business trip, and I got a free week of Hulu Plus so I could watch season 2 (I left hubby in the dust!) – did that in about 3 days. I avoided all media about DA during that time so I didn’t read any spoilers! It is sooo good!

  5. I’m totally hooked and have been from day 1. The advantage to coming late to the party is that you didn’t have to wait a whole year for season 2 to come out and then another whole year for season 3, like I did. It was torture!
