So, I held out for two years, but my wife finally got me hooked on Downton Abbey, and basically, if the Dowager Countess and Mr. Carson ran everything, what a wonderful world it would be. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it. Anyway, I’m just about caught up with Season Three — watched the Season Three premiere last night, and now have just a few episodes to go; don’t give me any spoilers in the comments thread! This is just to let you Downton watchers a heads-up that for the rest of the season, I’ll be hosting an open discussion thread here after the Sunday night PBS broadcast.
