I enjoy watching TV, and Downton Abbey is my favorite show right now. It comes on our local PBS station from 8-10 pm Sundays; the second season began last Sunday and runs through mid-February. I find it fascinating: the characters, the period (season two is about World War I Britain), the storyline. I wish I had created the series. Julian Fellowes is a gifted writer.
My favorite characters are Gwen, a housemaid turned secretary, and the Dowager Countess of Grantham, who is the matriarch of the family. In fact, I took a quiz on the Guardian’s site (The Guardian is a newspaper in the UK) and found out my Downton Abbey character was the Dowager Countess. That was fun.
One of my co-workers watches it too and we like to talk about it at work.
I’m excited to watch tomorrow night’s episode. I tape it every Sunday night and watch it the next weekend, as I go to bed early on work nights.
