If I loved Downton, what else might I enjoy watching?
I just finished getting caught up on all four seasons of Downton Abbey. What was great about it was that my husband didn't care to watch the whole thing, although he enjoyed the ones he saw, so I could pop in an ep in my office/the spare bedroom and do my daily exercise and stretching.
So what other series could I watch with the same level of interest? I love Mad Med but have watched the whole thing a couple of times.
I hated Breaking Bad.
What else could I watch?
A helmet saved my life.
2015 goal: learn to ride like TheHorseProblem, er, a barn rat!
I love all things Jane Austin. I recently watched Monarch of the Glen, Doc Martin, and Wuthering Heights (the newest one) and loved them all. I am currently on US shows so Sons of Anarchy, Dexter, and Orange is the New Black.
On PBS: Call the Midwife-- based in the late 50s London, based on real stories of a midwife's experiences in post-war east end. Lots of "Masterpiece Theater" reruns available, too.
I watch those on DVD from my library. I was *so* sad that there were so few episodes. I've just gotten another of the books it was based on from interlibrary loan and am looking forward to reading it.
I just watched The Aristocrats -- the costumes are gorgeous, and they were able to film in the actual house in Ireland where some of the main characters lived. Be sure to watch 'the making of' bit where they show how they dealt with the modern things that had been added to the house, like covering up light switches, etc.
