Corry and Downton has us sorted for the night.
Verdun, you need to watch it to make a judgement. Many of the "upstairs" folk are painted as vile, while many "below" are wonderful.
I've loved it from the very start
Totally agree about eastenders, Unattractive , inarticulate people arguing with each other.
I have to agree with Verdun about Downton. The 5% lording it over the rest of us commoners kept in our place....
I apologise Jo if I've offended you, it was not my intention. My feelings however regarding Downton remain the same.
I did see Avatar this afternoon on Film 4. Love that film and am very much looking forward to Harry Price Ghost Hunter
Crumbs! I feel as if I should touch me forelock and curtsey (or something like that). Actually, I have enjoyed Downton, and loved the prog tonight. I have been given the box set as a present, and the accompanying book. I don't feel patronised or downtrodden (see the near-play-on-words there? ). The drama, the costumes etc have all been pretty good, even if a bit sanitised. But it is entertainment pure and simple. If I want to think a bit more about the class system and its implications, then I suspect that one J. Corbyn Esq will give me a masterclass.
Each to their own. One man's meat is another man's poison - and I have loved the escapism of Downton.
Last night I watched Sinatra with Gene Kelly, Toy Story and How to train your Dragon ( ) - then repeats of Have I got News For You.
Then fell asleep
Today I will watch The Nutcracker which I recorded when I was out yesterday.
Christmas Day telly is usually pretty rotten unless you like the soaps, Downton or whatever the current flavour of the month is. I don't watch any of the usual favourite shows so Having Toy Story to watch, yet again, was great!
The Titchfield Thunderbolt last night
