A new Sunday night treat

As of late, I have become slightly obsessed with the show Downton Abbey

Have you heard of it? It is a series from Britain about a titled family, their comings-and-goings and their household staff. It is set in the 1910s...right now, they are in the midst of World War I.

I watched the first episode of the second season and I am hooked. My new objective is to get caught up on season 1. Thank you, thankyouverymuch, iTunes gift card. : )

It shows here on Sunday nights at 9pm on PBS....check your local listings. It is one show I watch that my husband does not ridicule quite as much, since it has gotten excellent reviews

If you DO like the show, you should know that it reminds me very much of another British series called Monarch of the Glen.

Kind of the same premise, but set in Scotland...very funny, a little off-the-wall and very addicting! My sister turned me on to it. : )

It's enough to turn you into a bona fide Anglophile.....

Heck yes! My hair dude actually gave me the first season of Downton Abbey and I watched the whole thing in 2 days. I've been curious if there were other shows out there like this so I'm glad for your post!!!
