Downton Abbey Recap

Here is why you shouldn't watch Downton Abbey with a 16 year old boy. Thank G-d I have it on the DVR so I can re-watch last night's episode over.

Boy-"Who is that?  What do you mean she was married, isn't she like twelve?   Why are they over-acting?   That girl needs a spray tan.   Is Daisy her real name?  What kind of name is that, that is a dog's name.  It's lame when you say the name of the show in the episode.  Why is everyone so nosy?  Those walls seem pretty thin for a mansion.   Are there any murders? 

Who is that guy? He looks like Voldemort, no wonder no one can recognize him.  Ohh those are butlers like Alfred in Batman.   So that guy is like Bruce Wayne?  Wouldn't it be cool if that guy turned into Batman or something? (he is Marvel Comics Encyclopedia)

Me- I will try that episode again today while the boys are at school.


  1. That is too funny! I can't imagine ever getting my 18-year-old stepson to watch DA with me...and maybe that is a good thing after what you've told us.

    He is very observant. I never noticed the thin walls - will have to keep my eye out for them next time.

  2. Doh! Boys don't know a good thing when they see it. yet.

    Girl, I wish we lived in the same town. You and Casey could come over for martguerita slushies and watch PBS. It'd probably look like this:

  3. Haha!! My husband is actually more obsessed with the show than I am, I think. If he made fun of it, I'd have to hole up in my closet and watch it alone! :)
