Downton Abbey ITV1 22nd September 9pm

Anyone watching this tonight?
I'm on nights so I will miss most of it so will catch it tomorrow.
I'm hoping to see less poor Edith and more Fab Edith this series.

I just finished watching it. Great episode. I won't release any spoilers, except Edith looks pretty damn good!

Love her out fits but not feeling the love in the Edith/ Gregson relationship.

Agreed. There has to be someone better for her.

Now now, those two will do splendid together in the Third Reich. This will set up the Christmas Special where Hitler visits Downton quite nicely indeed.

Re: Downton Abbey ITV1 22nd September 9pm

I don't mind that relationship. Edith is finally in a genuine relationship and she deserves that, although the fleeing to Germany part is a bit much, I admit.

As usual, Maggie Smith was running on all cylinders. I died of laughter at "It's the job of grandmothers to interfere." Seriously, I could watch The Adventures of Violet, The Dowager Countess of Grantham and leave everyone else behind (even Mr. Bates and Anna).

The thing is I would not mind Edith new man except she does not seem all that in to him.
When he said I loved you she did not say it back.
I do wonder if Maggie sometime writes her own lines she gets all the best ones.

Re: Downton Abbey ITV1 22nd September 9pm

I suffered a sudden catastrophic 'giving a stuff' failure after ten minutes. Three series in and suddenly...nothing.

I don't know whether I'll watch any more...

Yeah, I had trouble connecting to the characters and the story, too. But then we got the new lady's maid who, judging from the preview for next week, seems to have her own sinister agenda going on.

Lady Mary annoyed the crap out of me all episode but otherwise quite enjoyed it. I hope this season has the guts to follow through on some stories and drops the reset button tendencies of the previous year.

How about that nanny? Didn't see that coming. Shocking I thought.

I don't think he should have replaced the cast members who had left.
The show might be a bit better with a smaller cast.

Re: Downton Abbey ITV1 22nd September 9pm

I was board by tonight ep how convenient another letter from a dead person.
Flobert needs to stop being a dick.
Cora needs to stop believing everything the servants tell her.
Rose and Edna need to go.
And I think Edith caught a later train and she no longer a virgin.
Just hope we don't get any more babies.
Baby=death in this show.

Re: Downton Abbey ITV1 22nd September 9pm

Some really big contrivances this week. The letter was ridiculous, and the bit about Alice loving Carson and sending him a message to that end was cringeworthy. Still, there were some good bits too. I am enjoying the season more than last though so far.

Okay, you've all whetted my appetite for series 4 (not that it really needed whetting). Now I'd better stop reading until I can actually watch it.
