First of all, I have to say that I loved the video! I have always loved that song, but this spin on it made it almost better.
Second, no, I won't be watching. I like to wait for it to be on PBS in January. I kind of like it being "new" for me while everyone else has already seen it.
But the real problem now, of course, is to AVOID ANYTHING that might even hint at something from this season until I see it. I can avoiding looking things up about it, but I can't avoid comments that people just go ahead and make online or in magazines or on the radio. So, that is hard to do.
I won't lie, though, about the fact that I am really hoping for more Thomas this year. I do enjoy his nastiness. I am going to think that it is safe to assume that there will be more of him because of the way the story was going with him towards the end last year.

I actually did pretty well avoiding anything for all the seasons until last year. And how I found out what was happening was kind of ridiculous when you think about it.
I was reading an article in a magazine that was about people revealing things on shows (namely, Downton Abbey) without stating that it was a "spoiler alert". So, with that in mind, I figured I could read the article. And then the magazine went on and said what was actually happening on Downton. They just, basically, contradicted themselves. Here this magazine was complaining, essentially, about people spoiling things for others and then they did it in the SAME article! It was one of those situations where you could say that if it wasn't so absurd it would be funny! Maybe they thought anyone who would read the article would be reading it because Downton Abbey had been spoiled for them, and that is why they wanted to read the article. I don't know! Who knows?
But I knew what was happening last year because of that. So, I have to try extra hard this year to avoid any urges of even reading what may actually be a casual article about the show that isn't actually mentioning anything at all about what has happened on the show. I wish myself luck on being able to accomplish that!

I could go see "Cinderella" (it looks OK) if it weren't for the mice. I saw them in the preview. I seriously cannot sit through it now. I honestly completely forgot their part in the story.
Anyway, speaking of Daisy, did anyone watch "Galavant" on ABC? First of all, I just want to say that I LOVED the show!! I am just hoping that they bring it back for a second season (too many unanswered questions). Second, Daisy had a somewhat minor role on the show. But she did get 2 songs to sing. This is one of them:
I actually like the first song better than this one, but this is the only one that I could find online.
The Earl was also on it.
All I could find is this. Not the actual video. You can hear him when he has his solo parts. He was the Pirate King.
Also, has anyone watched the show "Manor of Speaking"? Does anyone else get it where they live? They show it after "Downton". I actually really like watching it. I don't know if I am going to miss that more when this season is done more than "Downton Abbey" itself. Here is a link: http://manorofspeaking.org/about/ Thomas is going to be on this week. I am interested in seeing what he has to say about the show.

I apologize if this has been posted somewhere and I am posting it again because I missed it (or if anyone saw it awhile ago - it is from December!), but I just saw this tonight and I got quite a kick out of it:
