Is there life after Down Abbey? It’s over, yes it is over for my bride and me. Not so, you say, the last episode doesn’t air until mid-March. Well, for us it is, in fact, over. You see, I am one of those impatient souls who hate commercials — yes I realize there would be no great shows without support from those irritating, obscene, and sometimes utterly ridiculous three or so minutes between the important stuff, but that doesn’t make them more bearable.
Secondly, when I am watching what I consider a great show, I have difficulty waiting until next week to see the results of tonight’s episode. I mean, let’s get real here — at my age, knowing the unpredictability of life, I may not be alive next week. I can not imagine not knowing “whodunit?”
We stopped watching the Downton Abbey sometime into the 3rd season, I have not the slightest idea why that happened; however we had an epiphany and decided to catch up. Since we have Amazon Prime for other reasons e.g., purchasing supplies for our cattery, we decided to use it to catch up to the current season first (free), then for about $20, we bought the sixth and final season. We watched all nine episodes in three nights — it’s nice being retired and able to sleep late the next mornings.
I shall not reveal anything about the last season, especially the very last episode. That would be awful, and probably worth snuffing someone out if they did that to me — smiles of course. All I shall say is we enjoyed the entire season, and hope you do as well. Send me a comment when you’ve seen them all and share your final thoughts.
So I shall ask again, is there life after Downton Abbey? Lord, I hope so. I must now search the vast supply to find another one, but I doubt if one will ever stand up to Jullian Fellowes’ Downton Abbey.[contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"]
