I don't know if I've mentioned it (once, twice, okay three times), but I love ANYTHING British. I know I came to earth at the time and to the place that I was supposed to come to earth, but man, there are times when I just know that I was meant to be British in the early or late 19th century!!
No surprise... my husband doesn't feel the same way. He's a good dad to daughters (the best really) and read Pride and Prejudice after the birth of our second daughter so that he could relate to them in later years. They were then 2 1/2 and 3 months old, respectively. I wouldn't say that he hated it. On a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being ANY Nicholas Sparks movie and 10 being the Jazz making it to the NBA finals), I'd say he gave it about a 5.
So when HE suggested we start watching Masterpiece Theater's Downton Abbey on Netflix, imagine my surprise! AND JOY!
And now, we're hooked.
I'd say that it's a bit like a soap opera, but what housewife (and husband) doesn't have a soap opera? So I'm going to go ahead and suggest it to you all. You're welcome.
