January 6th Brings Season 3 Of Downton Abbey To The US - I'm Excited, But I Won't Think Less Of Anyone Who Doesn't Care
I love Television and am endlessly entertained by things like Big Bang Theory and Folye's War. But I would only watch Upstairs Downstairs if I needed something to watch while I was sewing. And Downton Abbey is the same type of serialized drama of manners and class. I enjoyed watching the first two seasons, and my husband just expressed an interest in catching up by watching them too, so we can watch Season 3 together. Guess I'll be watching them with him, because I am a social TV watcher. And Downton Abbey has turned into one of the most socially acceptable TV watching possible.
I think Downton is no better than the old Dallas series from the 80's - and I loved the old Dallas series. I would have happily watched the new reinvented Dallas, but hated to watch Larry Hagman, who looked like death to me. And since he passed away just recently, I was right. So I never got back into the series, even though now I won't have to watch him wasting away.
But my point, and I do have one, is that no one should feel bad for not getting into Downton Abbey. I'm not judging you.
