If there is ever a show that has taken over my life, Downton Abbey is it. Two weekends ago I woke up at 5am Saturday morning and tossed and turned for 30 mins until I decided to give up and turn the tv on. Of course there is zero good tv on at 5am so I immediately clicked the Netflix button and browsed for a few minutes until I found Downton Abbey. Now I had heard some good things about the show but other than hearing it was ‘a great show’ I knew nothing. Since I had nothing better to do and was not about to get out of bed at 5 I started Season 1 Episode 1.
From that moment on an OBSESSION has ensued. Any spare time I can squeeze into my day has been filled with Downton. Sometimes at night I even dream I’m one of them, gliding through the emaculate hallways with my floor length gowns. I mean not only is the story line interesting, but what about the costumes! WOW. As a girl who wears t-shirts and nike shorts as much as possible, the thought of wearing a gown every single day kind of blows my mind. However, I wouldn’t mind seeing my boyfriend in a tux everyday ;).
So instead of my saturday full of homework, chores and working out, this girl stayed on the couch and watching almost the entire season of Downton. Pathetic you say? Clearly you haven’t watched the show. I’m telling you ladies (and gents for that matter), don’t start this show unless you’re readty to become an addict. Also, if anyone else out there has become as addicted as I have, I’d love to hear your thoughts about the show. How great is Beth McGovern? Probably my fav character for sure. I’m actually trying to teach myself how to deliver a polite insult in a birtish accent now.
