Let me tell you something about me. When I become interested in something, I get interested to the point of obsession. I don’t have idle interests. When I like something, I really, really like it. I will learn everything I possibly can about it. A few of these things are or have been: Harry Potter, baking, working out, skiing, Pride and Prejudice, etc. Well, I’ve found something else that I am completely obsessed with: Downton Abbey. If you’ve seen this British TV show, I’m sure you wholeheartedly agree with me. I love everything about it – the characters, the romance, the wit, the scandal, the history – but I especially love how after I watch an episode, my thoughts are reeling for hours afterward, trying to figure out why this or that happened and what’s coming next. And don’t even get me started on how much I adore Maggie Smith. She’s one of the best actresses I have ever seen. I began watching it last Sunday (from Season 1, episode 1), and I was up to date with Season 2 by late Tuesday night. I couldn’t stop watching it. If you haven’t seen it, I couldn’t recommend it highly enough. The entire first season is on Netflix, so if you have Netflix, get to it!
