‘Picture Shows & Petticoats’ DAs5e9 – ‘If you’re really the bigger person, you’re gonna act like it’

10 Mar

Apologies that there are only two episodes of Picture Shows & Petticoats for Downton Abbey season 5. This episode covers our big U.S. finale…the UK Christmas special. It features an appearance by a cuckoo, my dog’s audition for a role on our show, and a lot of giggling over Matthew Goode.

If you’re not following us on Twitter @pspetticoats, you’re really missing out. That’s where the real action heats up during Sunday night Downton broadcasts.

And while you’re following, don’t forget to follow us on Pinterest as well. We don’t have a PS&P user account there — it’s a shared board that Elizabeth and I post to for your period-show pleasure.

Happy OETA Day

28 Apr

Today was OETA’s annual day at the state capitol, and I’m so pleased I was able to attend for the first time with Elizabeth.  The OETA staff was extremely welcoming and gracious.  If you’re not following them on both tv stations and social media, you’re missing out!  There were so many children who showed up to hang out with the OETA Kids characters, but there was plenty other fun for grown-up fans like us.  We love and support our local PBS!

‘Downton Abbey’ s4e2 – ‘Viewer discretion is advised’

19 Jan

Downton Abbey is “back at full strength” with a big house party of people ready to make an impression.  The coronets have been dusted off, and the white ties are out in force.  What a shame we didn’t get to follow the ladies into London for their wardrobe shopping trip before the big event!  These are some snazzy rags.

Too bad all the people who arrive are not as snazzy on the inside.

But we’ll get to that later.  This is a “parental guidance suggested” episode…and so is this blog post.

Mastermind Edna is using her Jedi mind tricks on Tom…and once again it’s working.  Slightly terrified they’re going to work.  Or they already have.

“You understand me, don’t you?” ~ Tom
