We're Hooked on Downton Abbey

So I’m hooked on Downton Abbey. My wife and I love to sneak away from the kids every week to watch each and every episode on the big screen. We didn’t catch the wave until the end of the second season so we had to watch those on Netflix. We were in a panic when we discovered that Netflix only had the first season. We wondered how we would get our fix. Thank goodness for Hulu Plus. We saw season two and were able to catch up with the rest of the world.

Well, we’ve talked many times about the reasons we’re so addicted. Is it the awesome English accents and wonderful United Kingdom location? Maybe it’s all the beautiful people and their perfect clothing. There is certainly something to be said about the post-Edwardian era stories. One of the most intriguing elements of the show has to be the Yorkshire country estate which is Downton Abbey. (Its real name is Highclere Castle).

Downton Abbey appears to be perfect, inside and out. Each floor is covered with a beautiful rug. I don’t know the origin of each Downton Abbey rug, but I can only imagine that they include Turkish rugs, Kilim rugs, Persian rugs and so on. The walls are covered in wonderful paper. Everything looks to be in the right place. English houses don’t necessarily have an absolute style, but this house is so well put together that it has it’s own style.
