Conversation #188: A Downton must see

ALERT: sort of spoilers if you still haven't watched season 3 Downton finale!!!

We all know Downton Abbey is the hot show these days.  It is funny because I actually consider myself having just been on the brink of it's major popularity explosion.  This doesn't happen often.  We do watch a lot of TV (probably too much) so we find a lot of new shows and share them with our family.  This was one of them, but we were actually informed about this show from another friend first (who also recommends great TV).  He told us about it after the first season ended so we caught it after the fact but before the second season started and we were hooked.  It was so hard to wait each week to watch the new episodes when we had been able to knock out the first season in a couple of days.  Like I said, we were hooked.

Anyway, this season was just so happy and sad all at the same time.  I kept trying to guess what the tragedy would be in the last episode.  Mary also dying in childbirth - nope.  All of the family getting in a train crash on the way home for the birth - nope.  Hoping Thomas' injuries were the worst - nope.  As soon as I saw Matthew in the car, I knew.

So I saw this video on Big Mama's blog and it made me smile so I wanted to share it:

Hopefully it lightens your mood a bit after that finale.  Also, my sis-in-law sent me this funny cartoon:

I love Downton Abbey and was so disappointed about Matthew in the finale! I'm still trying to figure out how they are going to redeem it in the next season...maybe...he's not really dead and Dr. Clarkson will perform a miracle and old Mrs. Crawley will have to fall in love with him. Ha! I get so wrapped up in TV shows too...obviously!
