(Note: Only three of these are shows we actively blog, but I am a fan of Game of Thrones and True Detective as well, and plan to watch House of Cards soon. But seriously, Downton over Masters of Sex? Really?)

Kevin Spacey, “House of Cards” (Netflix)

Jon Hamm, “Mad Men” (AMC)

Downton Abbey – Season 4, Episode 8 – The Belle of the Ball

Feb 26, 2014

This is the last episode in a season that has packed tons of drama. It’s time for a par-TAY. We deserve it. And, thankfully, the episode begins with Rose’s coming-out ball. Will she reenact Diana Ross’ famous disco hit? Will the Dowager Countess and Isobel be her back-up singers? I can see them now, spinning [...]

I regret to inform you that the Downton Abbey recap will be abbreviated this week for I have fallen victim to this Arctic Vortex and have a bad head cold. For those in kinder climes, that means that a big chunk of the U.S. has decided it was time to move to Antarctica. Pretty soon [...]

Jan 29, 2014

Welcome back to another soaparific episode of Downton. First, a word from our sponsor, Ralph Lauren. Instead of a straight-up ad Ralphie wants to talk about his world – one in which women walk around disguised as extras in a summer stock production of Oliver! Alas, I wait fruitlessly for these waif-like models to belt [...]

The Crawleys’ guests are leaving fair Downton. And judging from the whirlwind romances and drama, it’s been a little like taking a cruise, sans the awful renditions of Copacabana and A Total Eclipse of the Heart. Everyone’s a little sad as they bid adieu to their friends… except for Anna, of course. SPOILERS AFTER THE [...]

The Grantham gang has guests! How is that for some mad alliteration skilz? That’s right, it’s party time. Or rather victim – excuse me!–, husband hunting time, as Cora looks over the male guests and purrs to Robert, “It’s good to see young men in the house again. Good for Mary!” Ah, how soon has [...]

I’ve never attempted a recap of Downton Abbey. I’m just not that good at this show. Even when I pay really great attention, which I admit is not every time, (and I’ve still never seen Season 2, and it’s sitting there waiting patiently on my DVR), I just can’t remember anyone’s name. It’s a thing. [...]

Gorgeous vistas of the Adriatic Sea, the Greek Isles, the Great Wall of China, and Istanbul are laid out before us. Are the Crawleys reenacting Around The World In 80 Days? Will the Earl play Phileas Fogg and will Mary be cast in the role that introduced Cantinflas to the Anglo world? Don’t be daft, [...]
