    Downton Abbey

    There must be many more addicts of this show than just myself. My question is what was the deal with Bates not receiving Anna's letters? What did he do to make them give him the letters?

    There is only 1 season available on Netflix. I watched it & now I am hooked. Our PBS station that carries Downton Abbey is not available on our Cable. I have looked for season 2 on the web but can only find season 3. I am disappointed.

    Amazon Prime has all the seasons. Amazon Prime is similar to Netflix. It's $68 a year for prime which includes free 2 day shipping when you order from Amazon. Prime also includes a free lending library if you have a kindle. You can get a 30 day trial free.

    Bates threaten to expose the criminal activity of the group in prison.

    I googled www.pbs.org and came up with lots on Downton Abbey including viewing seasons 2 and 3 online -- investigate this site and enjoy -- like many viewers, I can't understand why an actor would want to leave such a popular series and a paycheck for working on it -- I too am hooked and looking forward to next season, hopefully soon, although judging from articles on making the series, preparation for filming takes a lot of time!!

    Just read that the woman that plays O'Brien will not be returning for Season 4. What is it with these people?

    Yep, I'm hooked. And disappointed that this season is already over. But I'd rather have a short, GOOD season, than a long one that isn't as good. I bet we have to wait quite a while for the next season to be ready.

    Next season for the U.S. won't start until January, 2014. Boy, that's a long time to have to wait.

    Love the program and love how we viewers are on first name basis with the characters!

    I won't be sad to see O'Brien leave. She's sneaky and vindictive. I know that there has to be those kind of characters or the show would be boring, but I didn't like her when she tripped Bates in the first season and despised what she did after that.( don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen 2nd or 3rd season). I really don't like her.

    We watched all the episodes, even the last terrible one, on Netflix. We only have an antennae (sp?) and only get a couple of NPR (our favorite channel) and ABC news. We watched the entire series these last few weeks. I don't know why some of you aren't finding them. DH did put us down for Dowton Abbey some time ago, but we didn't start looking at them until about a month ago. A great series.

    Bates, for some reason (maybe because he was sooo uncriminal-like) was disliked by his room mate and one of the guards and the guard with held his letters. I also was unsure why they disliked him so much. Maybe because his wife came to visit so often?

    Is there going to be more???

    Our library has season 1 & 2. They will probably get season 3. Check with your library to see if they carry them.

    I found season 3 on this link, but not season 2. Today, March 3 is the last day to watch season 3 on this website.
