Lady Cora's Mother

(Please-no spoilers! Assume that all readers are viewing Downton Abbey as it airs on PBS)

Well, I think by now most people have heard the news about Shirley MacLaine being cast as Martha Levinson, Lady Cora's mother on Season 3 of Downton Abbey.  Just as a reminder, Lady Cora is the token American on our favorite show.  She married Lord Grantham when an infusion of money was needed to keep Downton running.  She was the wealthy American who gave up her money for love.

What do you think about this?   Is MacLaine a good choice?

I, for one, can't wait for the scene's between MacLaine and Maggie Smith.

Mr. Bates

(Please-no spoilers! Assume that all readers are viewing Downton Abbey as it airs on PBS)

While looking for new Downton Abbey articles today, I came accross an article that asked a question that I just can not answer.......

Why is Mr. Bates so darn hot??

Maybe you can answer the quetion for me because when I discuss Mr. Bates, I just can't seem to think straight!

O'Brien

(Please-no spoilers! Assume that all readers are viewing Downton Abbey as it airs on PBS)
After watching last night's episode, I was amazed at how many plots and sub-plots they squeezed into one episode!  I especially like the scene where O'Brien thought she was getting Sarah, Patmore, and the others in trouble with Lady Crawley.  The look on her face was priceless when Lady Crawley joined in to feed the soldiers.
What is wrong with O'Brien anyway??  She really seems to enjoy scheming.

Daisy & William



What are your thoughts on the Daisy and William situation?

I am a late comer to Downton Abbey. Having discovered this series I scrambled to watch Season One on my iPad. Having caught up, I am now an avid watcher of Season Two. I hope other viewers will join this blog and it can be used as a place for open discussion of the show.
