One of the benefits I got while down from surgery was being able to watch Downton Abbey Seasons 1 and 2. If you haven’t seen it yet, you still have a week before Season 3 starts on January 6th.
I had the benefit of buying the combined Season 1 and Season 2 DVD at Best Buy for the sale price of 34.00 USD. I watched it from start to finish and now, I cannot wait for Season 3 to start.
I had been told to see the series by my friend Joey for the last couple of months. After seeing the first episode on Netflix, I was not totally turned on by it. I stopped watching and besides, they only have Season 1 available anyway. Only in the UK can you watch Season 2. Unfair! They have now made Season 2 available on the PBS.org website. So you can watch it there as well.
But after I saw the first episode again, I couldn’t stop watching! My ultimate crush on the series is Dan Stevens who plays the character of Matthew (the love interest of Lady Mary). I read that he’s not coming back after the third season.
You can watch Seasons 1 and 2 on Hulu for free if you join for a trial period.
I have a friend who is partnered with a British guy and he travels back and forth to England. Season 3 is already over in England. He keeps trying to tell me what happened and I refuse to listen. I want to be surprised.
Here’s the trailer for Season 3:
