PostSubject: PBS Masterpiece Theater   Mon Jan 09, 2012 12:30 am

Does anyone else watch this? I just love it, and anything BBC. My latest infatuation is "Downton Abbey"...is anyone else watching this? The season premiere of season 2 was tonight. It's a wonderful series, and a huge hit for PBS. FYI, you can watch season 1 online. It's very addicting, if you like this kind of show!

I just finished another series, the 2004 BBC version of North and South. Another great period drama. And I watched the 2006 Bleak House last week...a bit more slow moving, a very detailed miniseries, with amazing acting. I hate to say it, but the Brits have it over we lowly American actors!

I haven't seen this one yet, but I saw a commercial for it recently. Looks good.

I've watched about two minutes of it. It airs fairly late in my neck of the woods so I've never watched it.


Is it a clean show?

I haven't had a chance to try and find that yet, Amy, but I will. I remember you mentioned that to me, and it sounds interesting!

It's not for everyone...in fact I didn't get into this type of programming even 5 years ago. Now I can't get enough of it!

Savannah, let me know if you end up getting into it---I'm pretty sure you would like it. I'm definitely certain that you would like North and South though. Thumbsup

I forgot to mention, Downton Abbey won the Golden Globe for best mini-series! Applause I can certainly see why. yes Three of their actors were also nominated, but none of them won.

Krissy, are you talking about Murdoch Mysteries? I'd like to give that a try as well. Some of the episodes are filmed on Kevin Sullivan's backlot that was used for Wind at My Back. There's also some RtA actors in some of the episodes, such as Lally Cadeau/Janet King.

I caught up on both seasons and I am totally hooked. Shirley MacLaine is joining on for Season 3.
