Binge Watching Downton Abbey

Okay, okay, I was late to the party. Not late to the dinner party mind you, but late to the Downton Abbey party. As conversation delved deeper and deeper into the on-again and off-again romance of Lady Mary and Downton heir, Matthew Crawley, I knew it was time to join the early 20th century with the tools of the 21st.
Over the span of two weeks, I watched pissy Lady Mary, the Titanic sink, an outbreak of Spanish Flu, scheming servants, World War I and the fabulous Maggie Smith as the Dowager Countess in a perpetual snit. Our laundry was in piles and dinner was cereal.
I watched Season One on my SmartTV via Netflix in my family room. Season Two found me in front of the fireplace in my parlor (okay, living room) running the HuluPlus app on my iPad.  I caught up with the current season via  pbs.org on my laptop.
 Now I have clean clothes, healthy dinners and a long wait for Season 4.
