Boo Hoo!


Sadly our Sunday nights at Downton will come to an end this Sunday! This series has been one of the few television shows that Marvin and I both enjoy and look forward to each Sunday evening.  Knowing that Downton starts up every January gives us a post holiday lift.   I am going to confess, I did read a spoiler about the Christmas episode. I could not help myself, I had to know what happens with Edith and Bertie.   And after Sunday evenings episode I will be purchasing Season 6 to complete my set of Downton DVDs. So I will not be saying good bye to Downton forever. I can still visit the Crawleys any time I please.  How about you? Will you miss Downton Abbey? I know Julian Fellowes is slated to do a series on the Golden Age for NBC but will the Americans take such care with detail as the Brits? Traditionally the British make much better tv series than their American cousins!

It is Friend Day so we are off for Breakfast at Cracker Barrel. I have not been to CB in a while so I look forward to browsing the store while I am there.  Have a blessed day Dear Friends.

I haven't seen any of the last season yet. It isn't on Amazon Prime and we don't have a tv. I am trying to wait patiently, but I really can't wait to see it. I have missed it and will miss it so so much when I have watched it all!

I hardly ever control the TV at our house. I watch news and when Hubby is at a ballgame on Friday nights in the fall, I watch Hallmark movies. I have watched everyone talk about this wonderful show on their blogs that they are tuning into. I am planning to purchase the DVD's and watch it this summer. I will most likely watch downstairs or when I am at the cabin etc. So eventually I will know all about this show EVERYONE raves about. I am guessing I have a ton to catch up on.

Hi Arlene, Oh yes, it will be a sad night on Sunday night to say goodbye to my Downton friends. I doubt if we will ever make any film (movie or tv) to equal that... The Americans just don't get it!! They'd rather make stuff like these silly sit-coms on tv or violent "thrillers" for the movies. Oh well, enough of that.

My fellow and I went to Cracker Barrel the other day for a lunch and you won't believe it.... I resisted wandering about the gift shop. Whatever in the world was wrong with me!!!!

I think this last season was a bit boring until about mid way through then WOWZER!! Heather, I know you will enjoy it. Sandy you MUST watch Downton Abbey...you will love it. So glad I purchased all the dvds....now I can watch whenever I wish. Latane, the British do have us beat in the area of quality drama. And how you did not wonder about the store at CB is a miracle to me. I did not purchase anything this morning but I enjoyed looking. A few Cracker Barrel items might end up on my First of the Month giveaways.

It's one of my favorites, but not one Bob cares for. I always watch it Monday evening when he has a church meeting, and try to avoid any spoilers on blogs or Facebook! I'm really going to miss it.

Marvin and i call it Our Story....similar to how our grandmothers viewed their soap operas.lol

I am just heartsick about it ending, but I have a feeling they will tidy it all up for us and leave us feeling good and that everyone will be okay. I agree that the Brits do TV much better than we do...especially with a series like this one. Boohoo.

Arlene, yes, it is very sad. I couldn't wait 2 weeks for the finale so I just purchased the season on iTunes. :-)

We will watch the DVDs...over and over again! I sure wish it had gone on longer! It's so hard to find anything else to watch. We were close to a CB this week and I wanted to go but I decided to wait. It was lunch time and too busy to stop by to browse. Hugs, Diane

Ladies. it will be hard but we must keep calm and carry on!!:)

I have all the DVD's and our lifestyle doesn't always lend itself to staying up that late every Sunday night. EEEKKKK....I'm an old person. I have always purchased them every year so watching it as it aired each week was optional. I do love the series and love watching it over and over. Such a wonderful historical narrative about a real home with a fictional family. I guess you can tell I'm a reader of historical fiction by that statement; ever since I was in high school, my favorite books have always been about the real places and history with sometimes some not real people woven through the story. I started with the royalty of England and so was already very familiar with English history when I went when I was 14 with Mother. She was impressed at my knowledge! So funny. But I will miss Downton very much. The specials on PBS about the home are wonderful to watch.

Arlene Grimm said...

Yes Jenny, I love the historical aspect as well. Last summer I devoured Phillippa Gregory's series on Henry the 8th. That led me to read some other works of hers...great writer! I will be watching my DVDs over and over I am sure.
