Downton Abbey Obsession

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about these sashay scarves that I was knitting, pictured down below.

It seems like every single day, when I come home, my mother has more yarn for me to knit more and more of these scarves. She wants to sell them to her students, and I, apparently, am the person who is knitting them. Yesterday, I started to take my knitting with me to school so I could do some knitting on the bus. It turns out that I also started knitting during my free periods (after I finished my work!), and I'm pretty sure there were a lot of people staring at me when I was knitting in the library today. All I need now is a rocking chair, and a cat, and I can be an old lady that knits all the time.
Anyway, while I was knitting these at home, I started to watch the British TV show Downton Abbey, and OMG! It is amazing! I'm only on the fifth episode so far, so I don't know everything about the plot. If you want to know more, I suggest you google (or even better, look it up on Wikipedia) the show.
The plot is really good, the characters are sensational,  and the music is amazing. I bought the theme song yesterday on iTunes, and it has been stuck in my head all day. Then, after I got home from school, I learned to play the theme on the piano! YAY!!! Aside from the plot and the acting, there is something else that makes this show so much fun; the character's accents!!! I just want to go to England and hear all these people speak. I could listen to them forever.
This hasn't been the only British television program that I have become obsessed with. I love the show Doc Martin. Doc Martin is about a curmudgeon named Martin Ellingham, who comes to a little town called Portwenn and becomes the town's doctor. I love this show. It's funny, and the scenes between the townsfolk and Martin are absolutely hilarious. I also am obsessed with Sherlock, a modern version of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Doyle. I love Benedict Cumberbatch, and the fact that he's going to play Smaug in The Hobbit, makes him even more awesome. Also, Martin Freeman (Watson) is playing Bilbo in The Hobbit, so that will be amazing.


  1. Now all you need is to add Doctor Who to your British TV obsession list and your life will be complete...but actually though, complete...Doctor Who does that...
