Downton Abbey

Post by kittykins » Tue Aug 29, 2017 11:59 am

Here's some info. about the movie in the future, but I had also heard it might be a prequel.

I haven't been able to get into the series Victoria at all. Unfortunately I bought the Blu-ray of season 1 before making sure I liked it. :roll:

That's the problem with these series. I've deleted all the Downton Abbey episodes. I didn't care for them, except great acting & costumes. I don't care that much about costumes. And I said I was never going to watch them again anyway. It freed up a whole bunch of space on my disk.
I don't know if they'll have a streaming site when they broadcast, like June whats-her-name, but I may just take a peek at new material, if it's easy. I hope you'll enjoy the series, people.

Ya that girl was a bit "funny". She said it wasn't illegal to upload but was illegal to download. It's actually the opposite here in Canada and I think in the States too. If someone posts something and you download it to your computer you probably won't get into trouble unless you distribute it.

They did change the law a while ago and now instead of prosecuting they seem to be blocking bit-torrent transfers. When I installed my latest MINT Linux, the tools for copying DVD and CD were missing. We can still do some things, but it's not like it used to be. So all the new movies coming out now, I will not be seeing them. Maybe that's not so much of a loss. I might get some more work done. :)

Well, it's always been illegal to upload copyrighted material. Canada has always been a little more lenient about downloading. I've never felt right about downloading full movies people post. It's really not a good idea. Now live streaming is so universal or you can rent it for not too much cost.

Well, my tree isn't coming down due to my intercostal muscle strain. So, after Valentine's and Easter, we'll see if I start the Downton Abbey decor in preparation for September, lol. :lol: Probably Old Country Roses will be in the middle there, haha. I have a teapot and so likely that will STAY, :P.

Well, are all the DTA fans ready?? Not much longer and I'm thinking booking tickets in advance might be necessary. So far I have about 5 people planning to come to the party.

Thank you Heini. Did you happen to see the Live DTA special on PBS? I missed the first hour as I didn't realize it was on, but I did see some interesting things at the end. I told my sister who was able to do a time delay record and managed to get it at the last minute. So, I can watch it at her place when I get to Manitoba again in about a month. I was hoping they'd replay it, but so far I'm out of luck.

For anyone interested, there is an interview with the food stylist for Downton Abbey in the Sept/Oct issue of “ Bake from Scratch”. Some great photos and recipes as well.

Thanks! I'm going to see the movie on Thursday night. There's also a DTA special on that night so I will have to record it to watch later.

Did you watch the special last night or the movie? I thought it was very good, but too short, haha. I'm going to see the movie for a second time tomorrow.

I was waiting for your post Kitty. Saw the movie this PM and enjoyed it. Everyone and everything nicely tied up with a pretty bow. Room for a sequel perhaps with the next generation at the forefront because it seems unlikely that they will get the original cast all together one more time. But who knows.

Oh that's great! I've now seen it 3 times and I think that's my max, as good as it is. I've been trying to rewatch the series and am now through the first 2 seasons. I own it on blu-ray. Quite a few of the cast have said they would love to do another movie, so perhaps most will be back if they do. I think Maggie Smith wants out so maybe she won't be there, but that would be a shame!!
