Thu, 10 Jan 2013 07:01:06 +0000 http://www.designmom.com/?p=29229#comment-428399 The grande dame herself, Maggie Smith as the Dowager Countess is the best!! I’m feeling a bit concerned regarding the addition of Shirley MacLaine to this season. I’ve seen all of the episodes that have aired here in the US, but I can’t shake the feeling that she’s been added to appeal to a wider American audience. Having two grandmothers with the witty repartee could be tiresome if not handled with a bit of restraint.

If you enjoy Stephen Colbert, and/or Downton Abbey, or the show Breaking Bad (which is a pay-cable show having something to do with meth labs, so expect content that corresponds) and enjoy spoofs, I’ve got just the ticket for you. http://www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat/2012/12/14/breaking_abbey_stephen_colbert_makes_breaking_bad_downton_abbey_mashup_video.html.

Here’s to Sunday nights at 9:00 or, as in our house, Monday night when we turn on the DVR!

Amazon has the BBC unedited version on pre sale for $32. If the price goes lower between the time you place your order and it ships (first week of Feb.) they’ll automatically give you the lower price. Right now it’s $32 for the set. Cheers!

I will confess that I did! Every Monday morning, Downton Season 3, me, and my pile of laundry needing to be folded.

Season 3 takes a bit to get rolling, but there are some awesome scenes!

My favorite character? I love Violet. And Mary. And Carson. And… :)

So nice to have it back. I feel I already have improved manners! :-) All three of the ladies are beautiful and I love the birth order dynamic and comparing it to my family of three sisters and my own three daughters! Sometimes my husband and I comment on the characters using our daughters’ names…

I’m not sure about my favorite yet!!

It’s such a turn-off for me….BUT because I am crazy about Downton Abbey I’ll answer this one!!! The Dowager Countess is just marvelous but Matthew and Anna are close behind.

You are safe. I think Holly means someone else, but I won’t say, since you still haven’t seen it. :-)

I’ve heard of the British series Upstairs, Downstairs but never watched it. For those who have watched it, would this be a more sophisticated version of it?

My husband and I are on episode #6 of Season 3 and we’re aways going on about the attire — and the head pieces!

The Dowager Countess has the best lines… plus it’s Maggie Smith, the best of the best. My husband has a crush on Lady Mary and appreciates Mrs. Crawley. I enjoy so many of the characters…and actually really like Cora, the mom.

Its fun to see how Thomas and Obrien connive together and how wicked they can be all the while maintaining their jobs. Its also fun to watch how knaive Daisy is influenced by others.

And my laundry is in too.
