Things We Love Thursdays: Downton Abbey

I know, I know.  I'm a little late jumping on the Downton Abbey bandwagon.  But better late than never, right?!  We got Netflix a couple months ago so I was able to watch the first season and Amazon Prime just recently added the second season so I was finally able to get caught up.  I absolutely adore this show.  If you haven't watched, you MUST!  Here are my top 5 reasons to watch:

1. The Characters.  There are so many great characters on this show from the Crawley family to the enormous staff -- ones you'll fall in love with and ones you'll just love to hate!

2. The Romance.  There are so many great love stories at work here, both in the privileged and the staff.  You can't help but root for these couples but, of course, things are never easy for them.

3. The Accents.  Hello, does anyone ever tire of British accents?  I love listening to them and find myself speaking with an accent after I've watched too much. :P

4. The Fashion.  Oh how I LOVE to see what they are wearing! It's such an elegant time period and I love seeing the styles and wishing I could just snag some of their beautiful dresses and jewelry for myself.

5. Maggie Smith.  Um, can I just say I love her?! She is such a hoot on this show and has the best one liners!

So, have you jumped on the Downton bandwagon yet?  Do you have a favorite character?  Are you DYING until the next season comes out like I am?!?!



  1. me too, love that is! I watch them on netflix so it takes me forever to see them. Just last night I was thinking I may need a AD inspired dress

  2. Oh my gosh, I can't even tell you how much I love Downton Abbey. I wholeheartedly agree with your entire post! I'm dying for the next season. I hate I have to wait so long.

  3. I am re-watching the first two seasons to quench my thirst for the third season that seems like it will never come! I want to own everything that Mary wears.

  4. So I glanced at this post in reader when if first went up and didn't think much of it. I'd never heard of the show. Then one night when there was nothing on tv, I thought back to this post and pulled it up and read it a little closer and decided to check the show out on Netflix. I. Am. In. Love. This show is fantastic! It is so well done. The acting, the costumes, everything is just great! And those characters really do just pull you in. I'd love to ring Thomas and Ms. O'Brian's necks!

    1. yay, so glad you gave it a try! it is sooo good!
