Sincerity

I was re-watching episodes of Season 5 of Downton Abbey on PBS, and noticed the opening sequence with Laura Linney had been changed.

Not only are there new sponsors listed in addition to our beloved Donald and Darlene Shirley,  but Laura has also re-recorded the voiceover for ‘thank you’ which had always sounded so stiff and,  well,  ungrateful.

Turns out that bit doesn’t require acting,  just sincerity.

I know too much

It arrived in the mail today —

Downton Abbey Season 4Downton Abbey Season 4, which is currently airing on Masterpiece PBS.

I wasn’t able to give it the attention it deserved until after 3:30pm.  But by 8pm — with a reasonable break to walk the dog and feed us both — I had watched all the remaining episodes.

I now know the secrets of Season 4. 

I still need to watch all the episodes one or two more times to get them committed to memory…but there’s no more waiting for each Sunday evening to roll around.

Oh, who am I kidding — I’ll still watch them then, too.
