I'll admit it: I was pretty late to the Downton Abbey party. In fact, I don't think I had ever heard those words before until they were mentioned in the year-end edition of The Week. Thereafter, I noticed a couple of mentions in the internet world and decided to investigate. I put that new Netflix membership to use and wound up watching the entire first season during the week between Christmas and New Year's. What a whirlwind! And now, the second season is upon us. Hooray! I didn't get the chance to watch episode 2 last night - in general, Sunday nights aren't good for me. But, I'm looking forward to catching up with it soon.
