Our newest TV obsession: Downton Abbey.
We started watching season 1 about 2 weeks ago and have only 2 episodes to go until we are caught up with season 3. We are beyond obsessed with this amazing Masterpiece Classic show.

Downton Abbey is a British period drama series set in fictional Yorkshire County estate of Downton Abbey. It depicts the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants in the post-Edwardian era — with the great events in history having an effect on their lives and on the British social hierarchy - these events include the sinking of the RMS Titanic, the outbreak of World War I and the Spanish influenza pandemic.

We are in love with most of the characters and are driven mad by others. The storylines are intriguing and each episode leaves us wanting to watch more - which is why we've blazed through the season so quickly - sometimes watching 2 or 3 episodes a night.

If you haven't seen this wonderful show, get moving! It's amazing and you will drawn in by the characters, the stories, the scenery, the costumes, Lady Violet's zingers and gestures - I don't know what T and I will do once we have watched these final 2 episodes.
Perhaps, we'll start the seasons over again - until season 4 begins.
