After hearing how fabulous Downton Abbey was for what seemed like forever, I finally sat down on Christmas and started watching it. I was immediately sucked in and found myself staying up late watching and saying to myself "just one more episode before bed."
By watching Downton Abbey instead of sleeping, I managed to finish up both seasons before Season 3 started up last month. It was a marathon ride, and while I don't recommend sleep deprivation, I do highly recommend this show! It has it all. Drama, mystery, romance--it's all there, along with a little history thrown in for good measure!
Right now, you can pick up Downton Abbey Seasons 1 & 2 Limited Edition Set - Original UK Version Set [Blu-ray] for just $37 shipped. Considering the regular price is $64 and the DVD set sells for about the same, that's a deal.
Of course, don't blame me if you find yourself sleep-deprived and having conversations at the water cooler with your co-workers about Carson or Lady Grantham.
(And for those who saw last week's episode, I'm still not over it. :( )
