Alas, tonight is the last episode of the PBS Masterpiece series, Downton Abbey. Damn, I’m gonna miss watching this show. Word has it that they’ve picked up another season in Great Britain, so it’s my hope that someday I’ll get to see more of it. But that won’t happen anytime soon.
For those of you who haven’t been watching, it’s an amazing series. It’s won all kinds of awards in the UK and has a huge following there. As for what it’s about, picture an updated Upstairs Downstairs, full of intrigue and class warfare, but mixed with the genteel Edwardian manners that those Brits were so good at.
Women’s rights play a huge role in the series, and of course there’s also a lot of love, romance and passion. Heh, now you know why I love it so much.
For a short while PBS Online will be airing episodes if any of you want to view it, and it’s also available on DVD. (Now you know what to get me for my birthday this year, hint hint).
So, fare thee well to the folks at Downton Abbey, for now. Rest assured they will all be in my thoughts.
