meet the crawleys...and the buchanans?

The current obsession around our house: Downton Abbey! If you haven't seen this PBS Masterpiece Classic yet, consider it recommended. Love, love, love, love.

I believe what I enjoy the most about Downton Abbey is how the drama revolves around so many strong female characters, including three very different daughters. In fact, the Crawley family kind of reminds me of my own...minus their fancy titles, social standing, estate, servants, formalities....
downtonabbey_thebuchanansWhat show can you not get enough of at the moment? We always love a new series, so suggestions on what to watch next greatly appreciated!

I just discovered this show too & love love love it! Some of my favs are Mad Men, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Parks & Rec & The Wire. Oh & Game of Thrones. Gee, I watch a lot of TV....

Danielle--Edgar and I've been on the Mad Men and Breaking Bad train as well....but you've given us some others to feast on! Thank you!

Suzanne, if you love Downton Abbey (which we love, love love as well) you are gonna adore the Larkrise to Candleford series!!! You may have to order it (my dear mother-in-law has given me the first two seasons) and a few are on You tube. Anyhoo...you'll love seeing Mr. Bates as Robert and tons of other well-known British actors.

I am crazy about Downton Abbey! I rarely ever get involved with a TV series - I don't even own a TV! But thanks to Netflix, I am completely hooked on that show. I find myself thinking about the characters long after the show is over. Love it!

I realize that my new obsession isn't as fancy pants as Dowtown Abbey...but let me tell you, it's fabulous in it's own rite.
Please, please, please watch Vampire Diaries on Netflix. It's fantasic. Seriously.

Yea! Thanks for the suggestions! Now I just need to finish Gossip Girl...I'm a total sucker for any series.

Just read your comment on my blog...my advice on Vampire Diaries..it's seriously cheesy at first. Just hang in there. Around episode 5ish you'll be hooked. I'm on episode 12 and I'm a little obsessed.

Too bad that Zach won't watch it with me. He says to "watch it on your own time." Ha! So...my "own time" is around 11:00pm after he's asleep:).

I can't wait to hear what you think!

I will have to watch Downtown A on Netflix and give it a try :) As for suggestions, I just finished Friday Night Lights on Netflix and LOVED it.
Also, my husband and I really love Justified on FX :)

Downton is awesome. I really love that your sketch of Mary has eyebrows. Those are such a distinctive part of her face!

I love so many shows. Parks & Rec and 30 Rock are my favorite comedies. Everything that people have mentioned above is worth watching (I've never seen Vampire Diaries, but I've heard good things)! I'm getting into Supernatural right now. Thank goodness for streaming netflix.
