Serena (serenaflamingo) | 27 comments Do any of you watch Downtown Abbey? It caught my attention the other day when I saw the name Crawley (my last name is Crowley). Just wanted to know if its a good show?

Can't get him on Austen yet though ;)


message 5: by Serena (new)

Serena (serenaflamingo) | 27 comments Haha, that's cool that your dad watches it. Squeamish? Are there lovey scenes or gore? That's the one thing I could've done without on The Tudors, the sex scenes.

Soph: keep trying! ;D
Serena: I TOTALLY agree; I've never seen the Tudors but I don't like that in ANY movie! :P very unnecessary in my opinion. :/

Serena (serenaflamingo) | 27 comments Exactly! I'm a HUGE TV show fan, I watch 'em more than movies. But Showtime and HBO are the worst! There are a few that, thankfully, don't have unnecessary naughty bits. So embarrassing to watch.

Serena (serenaflamingo) | 27 comments Right now I'm kind of addicted to Heroes on netflix, but I may give this show a go afterwards. I don't know too much about that time period.
If you start watching it, Stephanie, tell me what you think!

Its more gory . There aren't many and I am just really sensitive/squeamish ;) I think in episode 1 or 2 there was one unnecessary scene lets say. Otherwise pretty clean in the area - of what I've seen anyway. And I know!! What do people include it!! What is the need!?!

Nicole D. (thereadingrebel) | 1278 comments It's Amazing.I love Downton Abbey and have both seasons on dvd.It's set in england in the 1900s.The charactors are great and loveable.


message 15: by Anna (new)

Anna (SylviaGrant) | 232 comments I am very curious about a certain character and I wish to be well-informed of this character...her name is Lady Sybil Crawley. What is she like? is she a die-hard romantic? or anything at all what I am like?>!

Nicole D. (thereadingrebel) | 1278 comments Lady Sybil believes in women's rights,that women should work,and IMO isn't romantic.She is likes poltics(sp?)and doesn't want to just get married and do nothing.I love Lady Sybil and she is one of my favorite charactors but she is IMO the most modern of the women.

Serena (serenaflamingo) | 27 comments Wow an historic feminist...I'm in! Lol, I know what I'm doing tonight!. Is it based off of real people (pardon my lack of knowledge..I'm more of a 16th century English history type of gal)

I am not enjoyed series 4 but I won't give anything away! I think it is just me though.


message 20: by Michelle Von (new)

Michelle Von  (catsandfantasy) It sucks that we Americans have to wait till January for Season 4 when it's already airing in England! It's not fair! LOL

Sorry :(


message 22: by Evelynn (new)

Evelynn (authorgirlev) | 450 comments Well, while I'm waiting for Series 4, I'm watching Series 1 of The Paradise, which has got me hooked!


message 23: by Michelle Von (new)

Michelle Von  (catsandfantasy) Have you seen Mr. Selfridge? The Paradise is good (it's British, after all LOL), but I liked MS better, I think.


message 24: by Evelynn (new)

Evelynn (authorgirlev) | 450 comments I've heard that Mr. Selfridge is good too, but I haven't seen it yet. :)


message 25: by Michelle Von (new)

Michelle Von  (catsandfantasy) Make sure you do! ;-P

It's about a girl who works in a store called The Paradise. It's kinda like Downton Abbey slash Larkrise to Candleford. It reminds me of Larkrise to Candleford because it's got all the differences between the lower class and the upper class, since The Paradise is a store for the upper class, and it reminds me of Downton Abbey because it shows the upper class managers of the store vs. the lower class workers. It's very intrigueing; and I'm gonna tape the third episode tonight so I can watch it tomorrow! :D
