Downton Abbey

I know this is a little late but it only started airing in Australia a couple of months ago. I'm officially hooked. My God, the quotes are delicious especially from Countess Dowager (Dame Maggie's character) and she delivers them with a punch. Great acting, excellent script and beautifully shot. Thematically a lot more relevant to the modern world than one would think at first.

Anyone else a fan? I'm really looking forward to the second season. I haven't seen the first season finale so no spoilers please.

I think I'm going to buy the DVDs.

Re: Downton Abbey

Sam yes, I am addicted to it. I just watched all of season 1 yesterday and today. Such beautiful, well written, well paced drama and suspense.
The acting is so superb, and the Countess Dowager steals the show. Has season 2 already aired? I only have access to Season 1 on Netflix.

Re: Downton Abbey

We already have a thread, that Sam you've posted in.. seems silly that you've created a separate thread.
