Glued to the tele: Downton Abbey
I've been loving Downton Abbey on Masterpiece Theater. Sitting on the couch last Sunday, my husband said to me with a suspicious look, "Are you enjoying this?"
"YES," I said, "I AM."
And now I can't wait for the conclusion this weekend. I love the upstairs-downstairs mix of characters, the dueling old upper crust ladies, the gorgeous costumes, and of course the romance you didn't see coming (Matthew and Mary), and the one you did (John Bates and Anna - my two favorite characters). It's just the right mix - not an overwhelming gush of romance, not too sweet. There is bite and spice and realism to round it out. This sort of entertainment that doesn't come often enough.
If you've missed it... people, people! Stop wasting time. You can watch it online right now on PBS! (At least if you are in the US, so my apologies if you're not!)
