Not your grandma's PBS

I have my English tea K-cups at the ready, beside my beloved Keurig.  I have a recipe for crumpets and will be shopping for the ingredients tomorrow.  I’ve been toning up my British accent for days now and I’m getting bloody good, if I do say so myself.

Why am I doing this stuff, you ask?

Well, if you have to ask, you won’t understand. But try to keep up. I’m only going to say this once.

Downton Abbey Season 4 looms on the horizon. 


The 1920s and flapper-fashion are the next big thing, and PBS is the new guilty pleasure for many of us.

But let me back up just a bit and explain to you non-believers.  Let me enlighten those of you who never ever ever click on the PBS channel for fear of being cursed with terminal boredom.

PBS is not like it used to be.  PBS carries amazing, quality viewing entertainment that will not only exercise your brain, but also lubricate your senses while seamlessly transporting you to other times, places and cultures. 

Downton Abbey is a prime example of superior, quality television.  From the writing to the characters, costumes and drama, Downton Abbey will spin its magic on you and leave you begging for more.

If you don’t believe me, just try out Season 1.  You can find it online, perhaps Netflix and/or Hulu Plus.  I can almost guarantee you won’t be able to stop after Season 1. In fact, I’d love to be a fly on the wall to see your delight and anticipation for each and every episode. 

If you decide to give it a view, let me know what you think. 

And, you’re welcome.

Those of you already hooked on Downton Abbey can relate to my obsession.  Some folks even have Downton Abbey viewing parties, in which everyone dresses up as his/her favorite character on the show.  My favorite character is Lady Violet, played by the amazing Maggie Smith.  I won’t be dressing up like her, but I will most certainly be toasting her entrance with a big gulp of my English tea.  Hell, I may even get up and curtsy. The possibility is not out of the question.

The premier episode of Downton Abbey Season 4 is but two days away.  I don’t know if I can wait that long. But I need to make it!   I hope I can!  As Lady Violet would so aptly put it: “Don’t be defeatist, dear, it’s very middle class.”

Lastly, just to whet your appetite and get your curios juices flowing; I’ve provided a few tidbits of info on some of the characters:

  • 4th from the right is Lady Mary.  Everyone she sleeps with seems to die. Reminds me a bit of the black widow spider who mates, has hot spider-sex, then kills her lover. 
  • 2nd from the right is Tom Branson.  He used to be the family chauffeur, but married the youngest daughter, who promptly died in childbirth, leaving Tom to raise their daughter alone. So, now Tom and his daughter are forever upstairs instead of downstairs.  A fairly tale story within a story.  This is good stuff, people.
  • 3rd from the left is Thomas Barrow. An ambitious, scheming footman, Thomas is the one you love to hate. He’s a schemer and a dreamer. He’s also gay which adds spice via a few steamy love scenes as well as heartbreaking rejections.  Thomas will annoy you, but you won’t forget him.


Okay, that is enough teasers for you.  So, what are you waiting for?  For you unfortunate souls who have yet to journey through the Downton Abbey experience, go forth and binge watch the first 3 seasons.  You won’t get much sleep, but you will thank me for leading you into temptation.

I love it when that happens.
