    Does anyone else watch this show?

    Yet again, I'm sick as a dog, so I spent the entire day in bed watching this show. I finished season 1 and just started season 2. I'm a little obsessed :lol:.

    Nope I don't watch, but feel better soon!

    I'm actually surprised I haven't gotten sick yet since school started on Aug 6th.

    Yes, I love it and am anxious to see season 3. I accidentally read a huge spoiler (it was in a headline on a site I visited - rude!!) so now I'm really curious to see how it plays out.

    I'm a Downton Abby fan also! Other than the sick part, that would be a great way to spend the day.

    LOVE Downton!! My husband even watches this one with me. Can't wait for the next season! I want to read the book about the real Downton Abbey also.

    I love it! I am actually watching Season 3 now because I couldn't wait for it to start here in January. Even though season one is still my favorite I still can't wait for every Sunday to come to watch the new one. How many episodes are per season? I forgot.

    I am already watching season 3! I refuse to wait until January :p I am behind an episode but I will catch up by Sunday! I recently took a tour in a local historic mansion and although it wasn't quite as huge as Downton the furntiture and decor was similar and I do admit I did imagine for a second that I was Lady Mary as I walked down the grand stairway :blush:
    I tried to get my hubby to watch it with me but he thinks Matthew looks too much like my ex fiance and grumbles when I watch it :lol:

    I watched the first episode and a little of the second, but they're really long so its hard for me to find the time to sit down and watch it. Also I've been addicted to Fringe and Sherlock (which I just finished) so it's not really been my priority, unless I need a break from gory freaky mysteries and crazy science. xD

    Uhh I just finished Season 2. SO SO happy about the engagement.

    Is it bad that Thomas is my absolute favorite character? I feel like I'm supposed to hate him but I LOVE him :lol:.

    Sherlock is coming back for Season 3 but god knows when that'll be...

    Season 3 of DA is pretty good so far. You get to meet Cora's mother. She's a pip! I watch it online since I refuse to wait until January and I don't have cable anyway. I heard someone will die in season 3 but I have no idea who it is.

    It almost seemed like that was that. :( It was so sad. I love Watson and feel horrible for him.

    I'm not much of a television watcher, but I ended up watching the first season on my Kindle Fire when I was sick in bed for two days. Then I was hooked and had to buy the second season.

    Yea, Benedict Cumberbatch has been filming The Hobbit and won't be ready to film Sherlock for awhile

    I'm all caught up on season 3. Now I have to wait until Sunday to watch the next episode, instead of just clicking "next" :lol:.

    Someone does die, but I assume you didn't get up to episode 5 yet. It was a real heartbreaker.

    O'Brien is such a jerk :mad:. I'm so mad that she's playing up Thomas' hopes, which is only going to get him in serious trouble, considering the times. I feel so bad for him :(.

    Wait, where is season 3 online??? Admittedly, I haven't looked - I thought I'd just have to wait until January. My husband and I both loved the first 2 seasons!

    If you google Project Free TV you can watch a lot of shows online. That's what I use. I think I am on episode 4. There was a spoiler on facebook so I now know who dies. Yes, I really dislike O'Brien. Her and Thomas are two peas in a pod though.

    Her and Thomas aren't friends anymore though. I do miss the smoking schemers, but O'Brien can go. I won't miss her.

    Thank you! I've been meaning to rewatch seasons 1 and 2, and then I will have to find 3!

    I love Downton but am not as obsessed as with Sherlock. Sherlock will begin filming sometime soon after the new year and hope to air both in the UK and here by the end of 2013.

    I watched episode 5 today. It was sad. I will probably catch up on the rest of the episodes soon.
