Just before Christmas, my husband and I watched a couple of episodes of the first season of Downton Abbey and were hooked. We went away on vacation, and when we came back we went to Netflix and watched all the rest of Season 1.
Season 2 started Jan 8 (it is on Sunday nights).

Yes I'm watching it. I love it! It has a bit of everything in it. Drama, mystery, scandal,romance and humor. The acting is superb. I highly recommend it.

Yep, I've been catching some of it, too. It's not bad, but just a little bit too soapish for me. Quite entertaining though. :)

Yes and I'm really enjoying it. I love Maggie Smith and try to watch anything with her in it. I missed the first episode of season two on Sunday - I hope they repeat sometime this week.

I love Dame Maggie, too! She's my favourite in this program - she's so wonderfully dead-pan. I've got Season 2, Ep. 1 on the PVR, I think. I'd be more than happy to burn it onto a DVD for you, if you like.

I just finished series 1 and really liked it (and I'm a guy!)

They've got Series 1 for free for Amazon Prime members, and they have posted four episodes of Series 2, but want two bux an episode. I think I'll wait......

Yes! I love it. I watched the 1st season all in one day sometime last year, and have watched the 1st episode of the 2nd season twice now. I also follow Tom & Lorenzo's recaps of it here: Downton Abbey | Tom & Lorenzo

Also, there are these spoofs of it on YouTube that are hilarious:
(part one) and
(part two). My favorite part is when Thomas asks O'Brien why she's so mean and she says "I think it's because me hair's just knitting." Now I'm gonna have to go watch that again :)

Thank you for sharing these. They’re very funny and perfect examples of British humor ;)
