Now every so often a good series comes along and gets me hooked. I do like a good soap opera! I like to have one television program per week to get me looking forward to it. It has been a while since that has happened. And it is a big shame, but none of the German channels are broadcasting this series one episode per week...not that I know of at least.
Anyway, we got hooked. Season One was over and done with and I wanted to watch more! So, I had to buy the next season, and we watched it together again. We watched the first two seasons dubbed in German, because my husband was having a bit of a trouble understanding them with mixed English accents. (I was too and some of the dubbing was better for some of the actors.) I asked for the third season for Christmas 2013, and tucked it away nice and neatly and waited for the perfect time to get it back out when things needed a little more excitement.
This last week was that moment. I started watching two episodes a night and skipping a night. This time, I watched them in the original language!! I have become a junkie; I do admit it! I wanted to pace a little more time between them or stretch them out over a couple of months, but it simply didn't happen. I was also a little disappointed when I read on another quilt blog that she watched all three seasons and cut half-square-triangles (HST) at the same time. That's great for her BUT she told of some very important details looking forward to Season Four. I was a little sad..and intrigued and had to continue to watch more episodes. I think one or two are still unwatched..but I will not release any details!
I have come to find out that Season Five is ready to be launched. That is very exciting! I can't wait..I think I have to go and buy Season Four now. What is really and truly amazing is seeing the actors out of costume...they are gorgeous! I think the biggest transformation is Mrs. O'Brien; she is a very stunning and beautiful woman who plays her part most exceptionally! Bravo!
Oh..oh, oh...and I was tickled when I found out last year that there is a fabric line named after Downton Abbey. I am not too crazy about the fabrics, because I don't think they are totally in line with the era.
Here is a preview:
