I am loving Downton Abbey and I haven't been disappointed in Season 2 at all. Just to let you know - since I'm really old and was actually an adult in the late '70s, there was a BBC series around 1979 that I fell in love with (were you even born then?) The name of the series is Flambards, Same scenario - early 1900 England, horses, airplanes, social conflict, LOVE, and then the war. I just purchased it on Amazon and it might be available on Netflix. If you need another British series after Downton Abbey, I highly recommend it. I just bought season 2 and 3 of Monarch of the Glen and Can Not Wait!! My Southern accent is sounding a little British for some reason.
I have the Flambards on order as well as Middlemarch! Do you remember Tom Brown's Schooldays from Masterpiece Theater in the 70's?
Oh Anonymous, you flatter me and I love you for it! Not only was I born but I was heading toward puberty by the late 70s. :) THANK YOU for the suggestion! I will totally check it out. Julia has suggested a few as well. I have now finished Season 1 of Downton Abbey and will be starting Season 2 tomorrow...and I couldn't be more excited (and terrified, knowing I'll have to go to once a week like everyone else, soon!) I loved Monarch of the Glen so much. I keep telling Tracey to give it another try. She thought it was silly when she watched 10 minutes of the first episode and turned it off. I keep telling her everyone thinks that but by Episode 2 or 3 she'll be hooked. It's Downton Abbey - with more laughs - but no less drama! :)
Carol--now that I see I can get free eps of M of the G on the Kindle Fire via Amazon Prime, I may give it another shot....
Hi Carol,Downton Abbey has just (5 minutes ago)won the drama category in the National Television Awards here in the UK.Lesley:-)
I watched Middlemarch on Netflix and loved it. Another good one on Netflix is North and South.(Not the civil war mini series with Patrick Swayze) I am really trying to fill my days until book 8.
Amanda, I LOVED North & South - what a fantastic story; in fact, I think I might buy it just so I can re-watch. :)
Julie, I also loved The Buccaneers. You should look for it. It's about 4 American girls with new money who go to London to find husbands.
Amanda, thanks for the suggestion! Just took a look on Amazon, and it looks great!
