I'm Addicted.

Ok, if you haven't heard of this show or seen this show, you must do yourself a favor and GET ON IT!!!!  The "show" I am talking about is called Downton Abbey and it's on PBS.  It is actually in its second season (the third episode airs this Sunday evening), but I have spent this past week watching all of Season One in my spare time.  It is incredible!!  If you are fan of Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice, or a lover of all things Jane Austen, you will love this series.  It's addicting, though, so I must warn you.  There are so many characters that I just love, and it is so well written and the acting is so superb that you'll fall in love instantly.

Here's a brief summary:  "Exposing the snobbery, backbiting and machinations of a disappearing class system, this series chronicles the comings and goings of the upper-crust Crawley family and their assorted servants."  It's basically set in the early 1900s and follows the Crawley family in their estate, Downton Abbey, and the lives of them and their servants. 

If you have Netflix, you can stream the entire first season (I speak from experience), but you can also watch online at PBS' site for Downton Abbey.  

So, is anyone else a fan? If so, let's chat!!!!

From seeing everybody commenting on it on Facebook, Ryan and I watched the first episode of Season 1 today. Pretty shocked by the makeout scene that I wasn't expecting with the 2 guys! I'm assuming that doesn't happen much if so many of you girls are recommending it? I actually am not a huge Pride & Prejudice fan (I know, am I even a girl???) but I liked it so far!

Also, I cracked up at your video from SNL. Hilarious.
