Mullberry Whine

poured out before bed

Favorite Things Friday


…the whole dutiful, domineering, disdainful, dramatic gang (image credit: Carnival Films)

Ah, Downton Abbey.

Yes, it’s nothing more than a soap opera – with brilliant accents, beautiful period clothing, and a stunning setting.

But, come on.

Who doesn’t love a little upstairs-downstairs drama, not to mention a bit of a (weak-ish) history lesson, all wrapped up in a bow dripping with unapologetic wit?!  And what about all that compelling music?!  And – come, come, now – who doesn’t love to hate Mary, that uppity little minx, and to love poor Mr. Bates, too noble for his own darn good, and to sigh with the stodgy Mr. Carson, that Cheerful Charlie?!

The second season recently came out on amazon prime (read: FREE).  So now you know what Mr. Whine and I will be doing when I return from my Saturday interview…

    Enjoy. I am strange and am waiting to watch another season of Dexter.

      We TORE through the first couple of seasons of Dexter back when it was on Netflix. I just loved it – it was so dark and soulful, not to mention suspenseful! BUT – then I started having really intense nightmares about those darker things. Sadly, I’ve had to give it up.

        Ah, the horrors of the night when asleep. Sorry for you. I have loved all the seasons and am trying now to catch up on “Tru Blood”.

Keep it clean, keep it respectful, or keep away.
