Is anyone else planning to watch Downton Abbey on PBS next week?

If it is shown in our area, yes.


Bodo the Apostate, a novel set during the reign of Louis the Pious and end of the Carolingian Empire.

Now that you mentioned it, and I looked to see what it was, YES! I used to watch Masterpiece Theatre years ago and I don't know why I stopped. I'm off to DVR it!

True Grit is amazing, a must see, even if you are a John Wayne die hard. The young lady who plays the lead looks like she has years of good roles ahead of her. Shes tremendous in this role.

Funny Face. Very underwhelming. Watching Hepburn and Astaire dance together is like watching two sticks dance together.

Finally caught up with Twilight: Eclipse. I enjoyed it, but still think the first film (and book) is the best.

Just saw the new "True Grit" - which was good, but I'm still not sure why they had to remake the original classic. How can you improve on "Big Leggy"?!!

I didn't like the original True Grit, even without having ever read the book. I'll probably see the new one.
