A Very Important Warning

accidentally spoiled the new season of Downton Abbey

I was really late to the Downton Abbey party – we didn’t watch ANY of it until November and caught up just in time for Season 3 to start last week – but I am just as obsessed as the rest of the country now. (Sidebar to my mother: The first season is on Netflix streaming, go watch it now.) It’s really good, in a whoa-I-really-need-to-watch-all-of-this-RIGHT-NOW kind of way, so I recommend starting it at around 9 am on a Saturday and just count on wasting the whoooole weekend.

Unfortunately, this week I pretty much spoiled the new season for myself by Googling an unrelated British actor (here’s a hint: I’m obsessed with his show). Before I knew it – BAM! Spoiled! Right on the front page of the search results! I literally shouted “Noooooooooooo!” and shook my fists at the sky in anger. I forgot that Season 3 already aired in the UK so the internet is full of interviews and recaps and details on who’s leaving the show, including why and how, and since all that info is already out there in the world no one writes SPOILER ALERT at the top of their articles so I can close my eyes and pound blindly on the keyboard until it all disappears.

DON’T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU. I suggest not Googling anything or anyone British until this season ends – or pretty much ever again, since I’m sure Season 4 will air in England before they show it here. Curse you PBS!!

p.s. If anyone else KNOWS THE THING I found while I was Googling, LET’S TALK ABOUT IT (privately, not here! Don’t ruin it for anyone else!) Because OMG, WUT?!?!?!?

    I love the series too. I already streamed Season 1, but I have not seen season 2 or 3. I will have to do the through-the-mail Netflix since we quit the streaming option…:-(

    Please don’t be mad at Benedict Cumberbatch. He’s too pretty.

    I already feel that I know too much just from reading this. But I just wanted to mention that I LOVE the new layout!

    For those fiending for Season 2, it’s streaming on Hulu Plus. I know this because I spent about 15 hours last week catching up and now I’m disappointed that no one in my real life speaks in a British accent.

    Matt and I just watched the season finale for the second season and that is all we’ve seen-I am dying to go back and watch the rest! But the season 3 opener is queued up on the DVR for tonight. I can’t wait!!

    I watched season 3 at the same time it aired in the UK. And I was pissed with that finale. Me + this show = unhealthy obsession.
