    I'm kind of hoping they just introduce some new and interesting characters that I can love.

    Mike, no! Thomas is handsome but so evil. They KNOW he's manipulative and cruel, I wish they'd just fire him already. I did feel for him through the whole Jimmy thing, but he's still a jerk!

    Series 4 is six months later and they are already casting for Mary's new love interest.

    See, Mike, in MY mind, he's straight. ;) He's just waiting for me to go back in time...:lol:

    I didn't know that. Where did you see/hear that?
    I am looking forward to season 4!

    I heard it was originally only meant to be a mini series. I love the show but would have almost rather it ended in season 3 on a happy note rather than continuously getting more and more depressing! My friend was telling me that UK actors don't sign long contracts so it's typical for them to get rid of characters after only a few seasons.

    As my counselor pointed out this morning, no one likes happy marriages. That would make for boring TV and they want people to want to tune in.

    I was kind of hoping they'd start with everyone finding out about Matthew, the funeral, etc, but knowing how much time each season spans I guess I'm not surprised.

    Resurrecting this as I just finished rewatching Season 3.

    Any ideas on OBrien and how her story ends? According to Wikipedia (I know...), the Christmas Special was her last.

    This makes me incredibly happy, but curious as well.

    I figured as much, but it wasn't ever mentioned, right? Or did I seriously miss it TWICE?!

    I went to a preview on Saturday. It was fun. It just showed the first hour. I watched the rest today. I'm going to pick up the DVD's from the library tomorrow and watch the rest while I'm home.

    I am extremely tired of Thomas Barrow and his manipulations. He really hasn't grown as a character.

    Ahhh, Downton. You're back. I've missed you so!

    My favorite parts:

    "When you talk that way I'm tempted to ring for nanny!"

    "Now the room will smell like a tart's boudoir!"

    Patton Oswalt's live tweets. Omg, I laughed.

    Love this show!!
