Well, at least the wardrobe will keep me entertained…

… Oh, my gosh. Did you watch it?! It’s nice to see Thomas back to his old tricks. And pathetic, desperate Edith; the poor dear. But the real reason we all tuned in this evening was for the cat fight…

and the clothes, of course.

But I could tell this season is going to be as melodramatic-y and soap opera-ish as last season the minute that British Lord slipped the potato farmer chauffeur, Tom, a roofie. Really? Someone gets slipped a roofie in the season premier? That’s the precedent we are setting? Well, I do suppose it’s better than dying in the throes of coitus. Whatever. As long as you keep the me fed with an endless parade of flowing frocks and perfectly groomed eyebrows. Carry on.

    Throws of coitus instead of throes? I guess I have been doing it wrong all these years.

      My typo & your correction was probably more entertaining than the entire two hour episode. :D

    The clothes I like. But I would probably never have enough patience to sit through one of these things, not even for the clothes. :)

    It was so hyped that the actual premiere was sure to be a disappointment. The first episode wasn’t as well written as last season – one will have to grow into this season – hopefully it will get better. My first real disappointment was the Mary and Matthew tiff over the money – I just want them to be happy.
    What? So I’m sentimental.

    I thought it was really good — much better than a lot of last season, but Carson’s grumpiness was annoying… that poor new footman.

    I know that Lady Sybil now lives a “simpler life” but just because one lives on a journalist’s salary does not mean one’s hairstyle has to suffer. It’s just not flattering on her. Makes her look homely, and i think we all know Sybil is not homely. Not with THAT bone structure!
