Countdown to Season 6 of Downton Abbey

Are you like me, have you been fascinated for the last five years with the characters of Downton Abbey? Tonight, America will get the opportunity to see what everyone in Europe and I have already seen, the last season of Downton Abbey. Yes, I am a cheater and I couldn't wait for January. But tonight I will watch it again and it will be just as good the second time round. I am quite devastated to think that after this season it will be over but I suppose that all good things must end.

It really is like loosing someone you know and love, they have been part of our lives for 6 years. I hope they make a movie or something.

It is too bad that show is over. It was very popular on both sides of the pond!

It is the most popular British series of all time they said tonight and I am not surprised.

We were hooked for a while but I haven't seen the newest season. I may have even missed the one before that. Our library has just purchased the most recent ones, so I will have to catch up.

Both Season 5 and 6 are outstanding and all the loose ends are being wrapped up.

I've only seen a couple episodes and told myself I wanted to watch it but always forgot. I want to get the videos of the first five seasons.

@BelleStarr You're going to have fun I've looked on Amazon for them and will get them eventually, or hope they come to Netflix, but somehow I doubt if it hasn't yet.

I know many people have really enjoyed watching Downtown Abbey. I never really got involved with it.

We never ever got into that show here. Our favorite show is Heartland, about cowboys and ranchers, quite the opposite in comparison.

Oh no, not Downton Abbey again. There is enough rubbish on television without adding that to the listings.

@BelleStarr It is certainly not my idea of good television. If that was all that was available I would dig out a DVD and watch an opera instead.

It really is the best season ever, it is the type that will lend itself well to binge watching.

Since we had company, we had to tape it. We sat down to watch it at 10:30 and I promptly fell asleep. Hopefully, we can find the time to watch it tonight. We love that program. My son and his wife cheated, too. Lol!

I love this show but Netflix has not added season 5 so I cannot watch 6 until I see 5 the wait is killing me. I currently have to wait for Mr Selfridge, Wentworth and Bates Motel too.
