Has the Downton Abbey fever caught on in your household yet?
Me too. Let's be best friends and bad mouth Lady Mary behind her back. That minx. I adore her.
Seriously though, I've always had a weak spot for period pieces. If it involves a corset, I'll watch it. While other sixth grade girls were swooning over Leo and JTT, I was swooning over Collin Firth playing Mr. Darcy.

And now it's just getting silly: If You Liked It...
Ever since SNL took on Downton Abbey, I can't get through an episode without Eric declaring, "Nice car! What's your other car? A Bike?? It IS a bike!!!" every time Branson and Sybil have one of their "love" scenes in the garage.
Finally, just remember....
