…Show Some Class
Dear Downton Abbey,
First off, hope all is well. It’s been a while.
Hope the engagement’s going well Mary and Matthew. Sybil and Branson, hope Ireland is treating you well. Dowager Countess we know you’re still as bad ass as ever. Edith…’sup. Lord and Lady Grantham we send our regards. Anna, give Bates our best. Everyone else downstairs–hope you’re keepin’ it real.
We’d pay you a call, but apparently you won’t be allowing American visitors until January. Don’t worry that hasn’t stopped your representation on the Facebook from counting down to your premiere (in the UK).
Hope all of your British fans enjoy the continuation of your class-bridging drama. Hope they appreciate your constant eves-dropping, plotting, and dressing. We just have a few questions.
Why must you torment us so? Were we not faithful? Did we not accept you with open arms, not only into our homes, but into our awards shows? Why must you prolong our exile?
With that we leave you to respond. Please do so quickly. We’ll see you mid-winter when Masterpiece Classics and Laura Linney once again brings you to our shore.
…Sorry for bursting your bubbles, fellow US viewers, but those of you who have been anxiously counting down the hours until tonight’s premiere will need to add another 112 days (plus a few hours) to your countdowns. Together we can make it through this dark time.
Countdown to the “Downton Abbey” US Premiere (Jan. 6, 2013): Countdown
