i'm a fat handed twat
anyway - is Maggie Smith the best actress of all time?
what do we reckon is Bates' secret? i reckon his willy got blown off
why do they pick on the lady sister who is the fittest one and call her a minger? 1910s people have no clue
Did NOT enjoy blondey telling limpy she loves him. All a bit creepy that, I don't want that to be a love affair. Please.
i FINALLY worked out who everyone was and what their stories are. a moment of epiphany.
so glad mr molsley won the flower show
That said I still can't remember their names. Although I am a big fan of whenever Poor Mr Pamook is referenced in conversation.
Do you reckon slutty sister is eventually going to get together with lower-class boy?
I reckon Bates saved the Boss's life once. Dunno where or how, but IT'S A DEBT THAT NEEDS REPAYING.
I KNOW ALL
I dread to say it, but i reckon slutty sister and lower-class boy could be a bit of a ross&rachel.
but shit's definitely gonna hit the fan next week if sort-of-fit sister sends the letter
2. Knowing there's a letter involved is why I try and switch off before the 'Next week on Downton...' bit. HATE THAT SHIT.
3. Do I remember rightly the other week they said Carson was in a performing act on stage? I need to see some of this.
they should should show some archive footage of that somehow. I'm sure his ex-partner will be back soon.
who forced himself on one of the sisters (don't know whether it was the slutty one or not) and then died? I saw that episode, quite enjoyed it.
he was so sexy
a great rewind moment if there ever was one.
Sunday nights are amazing.
Marathon of Come Dine With Me, XFactor, Downton Abbey then some reading in bed.
There's a new Poirot on ITV tonight. Who's with me!?
Lovely stuff. Or: a bit disturbing. For that reason, I'm going to have to avoid Poirot. Being too similar to someone else scares me.
come on. it is warm.
if anyone can explain exactly how lower class man and his mum are related to the lord, and why this means he's 1st in line to the throne, i'd be very grateful.
wasn't that (cousin-shagging) considered a bit wrong by 1910ish, even amongst the inbreds?
I think Matthew is the ladeez second cousin
Watching her and Maggie Smith trade blows is literally the highlight of my week.
Also, I really hate Liam from Corrie and her from Benidorm.
imagine gosford park, replace most of the oscar winning actors with old corrie people, but keep maggie smith. put it on itv on sunday nights.
sounds good doesn't it?
(it's my favourite programme in ages)
It's bloody brilliant. Genuinely. Big stateley home, a bit Upstairs Downstairs, funny/sexy/class and feminism wary. Some brilliant relationships developing.
for something Downton Dad did in the war. Or something like that. He owes him big.
I thought Anna saw Mr Bates as a father figure, her saying she loved him was a bit ick.
My favourite sister is tiny socialist/feminist sister, she's awesome. They're all awesome except O'Brien and the whiny blind cook.
Is Daisy a bit young for blonde footman or will they get together?
she's a bit dim and annoying (hated it when she was siding with gay thief one), but he's a massive wet lettuce. - what does he actually do?, he just seems to polish shoes all the time.
bates is a bit too cool for my liking, i'm a Carson fan.
Bates was being a bit of a wimp by seemingly accepting his impending sacking. he could just say that spiteful footman is a woofter and they'd sack him on the spot
dowager countess was on fire. Why doesn't she live in the house though? it must be big enough and she can't be happy with just her christopher wren cottage.
Irish driver is a bit of a crap character. he won't be around for long
It took me about 20 minutes to work out how we seemingly leapt about three years in one week. I must have missed the constant passing of time.
they've only just got the letter for a start
plus blind cook would be properly blind after 2 years
if only they hadn't bothered to put up the time and date caption no one would have noticed
It's gonna be war time next week!
it's been stepping on a few months at a time each episode. Although if you'd told me the whole thing had taken place over one month, I'd have believed you. They don't get up to much, do they?
Bamos - IT'S THE BEST TV PROGRAMME EVER! (further notable opinion: Levelling the Land is one of the best five albums of all time)
Mum - IT'S NOT VERY GOOD! WATCH MIDDLEMARCH INSTEAD!
I just don't know WHAT do to.
she's a silly bigoted woman.
if anything, it's better being on itv because the break allows you to get more cake and wine
Also: I bought you the Levelling The Land opinion just before I rendered myself unable to speak for half an hour. I was not to be trusted on Friday night.
Downton is brilliant though. Your mother is shit.
It shocked me.
My mum is bigoted against ITV AND period dramas not based on one of the classics.
In conclusion: I don't trust either of you.
She's so annoying and self righteous. Also, she looks like Big Suze from Peep Show, so in our house we refer to her as Little Suze. Also see: sticking her nose in when 2nd footman's Mum was ill.
Maggie Smith needs a spin off featuring everything she's doing when not on screen during Downton Abbey.
Bates is cooler than Bond. Fact punch!
not political sister
