    don't bother me when i'm watching Downton Abbey. i really get into it. on Netflix, when you click on your movie,a preview , in text will come on, then you click on the image of the show, it should come on. the first two seasons of the show are on there, and i love the call the midwife too.oh, you can watch the currant downton abbey shows on the website of PBS.org.

    I enjoyed the machines too. Need a little help here. The woman who came to the door that refused the help, and later the organizer (don't know her name) went to her place....what is her thing? I know she gave a child away in Season 2, but I'm missing something here.

    She didn't give the child to the paternal grandparents because they were going to cut her out completely. So she kept the baby. She was a miad at Downton Abbey and the father was a soldier at the hospital when Downton housed a hospital.

    I recently got Hulu Plus and watched seasons 1 and 2 of Downton Abbey after the holidays. Thoroughly enjoyed them. Now watching Season 3 weekly, available at PBS.org. I find the writing a bit uneven this season, esp for Shirley McLain's character, and the constant sneering of Thomas is overkill. I agree the best character is the Dowager Lady Violet. Dame Maggie Smith is such fun. She speaks volumes with just a head tilt!

    I love Downton Abbey. I watched all 3 so far and will hopefully get to see number 4. It is a wonderful story.

    We are really enjoying this series, and I was wondering, is the series Upstairs Downstairs somewhat like Downton Abbey? Have any of you watched Upstairs Downstairs? Did you enjoy it?

    Thanks.

    The show is on PBS Masterpiece Theater. Go to PBS.org and you can find recent episodes a few days after they air on TV. I got the 1st 2 seasons by subscribing online to Hulu Plus- about $9/month. Many libraries have the DVDs for free borrowing. Probably on Netflix also.

    I watched Upstairs downstairs back in the day. That series got me hooked on PBS. I have been a loyal viewer ever since.

    I truely loved it the first seasons, but fear its turned a tad soap-operaish, which isn't that bad, as LynnVT says, there are worst things such as the not-real-reality shows.
    When life offers you a dream so far beyond any of your expectations, itís not reasonable to grieve when it comes to an end.
