    It's not even a real abbey. There aren't any abbots or anything.

    kvnty - might want to make sure you're watching the US eps when watching older eps like the Xmas episode. The UK has slightly differently edited/assembled episodes for some reason. That being said, I doubt it will make much of a difference when watching s4.

    As for the show itself, it's steadily declined in quality after its excellent first season. I'm not sure how many saccharine morality plays about the servants (cue the swelling orchestra!) I can take. Thank God for Maggie Smith. I think the main problem is that Julian Fellowes writes every single episode himself. A herculean task which he's not really up to. The quality could be greatly improved by injecting some new writing talent in and Fellowes could stick to doing what he does best -- writing pithy quips for Maggie Smith.

    I watched whatever is broadcast on my local PBS station (don't have cable TV, don't miss it). I loved the premiere, though I was wishing for commercial breaks during that two hours. Some promising story lines and new characters, and Maggie had some decent zingers. Didn't know Julian wrote it all - not a great way to keep a show fresh and interesting. Thanks to footixy, I'll be watching the xmas special tonight, though I've already read it is pretty lackluster. Looking forward to this season ...

    If you're a fan, you have to see Gosford Park:
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0280707/?ref_=nv_sr_1

    Written by Julian Fellowes. Much of the same feel as Downton, but less of a soap opera.

    I remember when that came out, tried to see it in the theater, never worked out. Then had it in my hulu queue until it expired. Even think netflix had it for a while. Maybe I'll trudge to my local library this weekend to see if they have a DVD copy. Thanks for the reminder, though.

    Gosford Park is wonderful. It might be my favorite Altman film after The Player. You can rent it on YouTube for $2.99, Kvnty.

    Also, I just used the phrase "pegged kvnty," which is itself awesome.

    and just because a girl might like to hook on weekends and enjoy the occasional bareback orgy, don't mean she got no culture.
