I watched the Downton Abbey series on PBS but I obviously missed (most likely fell asleep during) many of the episodes. They are having a 'review' of all six years and I've seen much I missed.

I wish I had the entire series on DVD to watch and re-watch to see all I've missed.

Brian and I started watching at the beginning of Season 3. After that was over, I made a decent sized donation to the local public TV channel to get the DVDs for Seasons 1 and 2. We watched all the rest of the series but I'd record them on the DVR and we'd watch each episode on Monday night (just so we DIDN'T fall asleep).

That said, I've been watching it again since Friday night (it's on right now). I sure have missed it. I'm a terrible sleeper so it's been fun watching it into the night from bed. I had no clue ahead of time that they were doing a marathon showing of it this weekend and just happened to be looking for something to watch late Friday night!

Beth, it's available at the library, too. My girlfriend didn't watch it at all but when I told her about it, she headed to the library and would borrow one season at a time. Someone didn't return one of the seasons, so the library ordered another copy and notified her when it was received. A nice way to watch and it won't cost you a penny!

I was wondering if anyone on here was watching, so I'm glad you brought it up. I'm paying more attention to the fashions this go round and it's amazing how many dresses the show had to make, as they never wore the same thing twice! What a fabulous series it is...

I watched a few years of it, until 2 years after Matthew..No spoilers...

The series I fell in love with last year is a re-make of Poldark. It is another PBS re-make. The original was on about 15 yrs ago. This one is awesome! I cannot wait to watch the new season. I really do need to review the first season..

Both Brian and I think the ads we've been seeing for Poldark look fantastic, CG. I hadn't realized this would be season two.

I've been thinking when this weekend showing is over I should go to the library and start from season one all over again. I have this very unique talent of not retaining anything I read or watch....which is why my Kindle is so wonderful. I read a trashy novel and six months later I can re-read it and not realize I've read the entire thing until I'm 3/4 of the way through the second time.

Must be why leftovers don't bother me so much....

LOL

I've got a related malady, Beth. I used to read so much that I couldn't remember the titles. I'd buy the same book again and realize about the end of chapter one that I'd read it already...

I often forget the endings of TV shows or movies, too. Not Brian. My latest thing is I can no longer remember the names of famous actors or actresses. Again, Brian will fill me in. I don't think it's dementia -- I think it's I-don't-care-a!

Roku has PBS on it. Its also on Amazon, I believe. If you are a prime member, I think its free.
