    I think I'd better do that, too!

    Just read a review on my library site that said this is a book better listened to than read.

    The narrator said something a few weeks ago about the 50s, which made me think that maybe the previous episodes had been in the late 40s and we were now transitioning into the early 50s, but I might be wrong.

    The book description says the 50s.

    Dang -- why can't we see in in September like UKers can...

    ‘Downton Abbey’ Season 4 To Bow Jan. 5

    By THE DEADLINE TEAM | Tuesday May 14, 2013 @ 7:50am PDT

    PBS has scheduled the eight-week run of the hit English period drama to run through the end of February, Masterpiece executive producer Rebecca Eaton said today during the PBS Annual Meeting.

    Downton Abbey is the highest-rated drama in PBS history after its third-season finale drew 8.2 million viewers on February 17, a 50% increase from the Season 2 ender. The timeframe for the PBS airdates falls similar to last year, coming after the fall run of the series on ITV in the UK. The big ratings bumps in the U.S. were notable given the high-stakes spoilers that were parading around the Internet while the show was airing across the pond ahead of its U.S. broadcast.

    ITV doesn’t announce its schedule until a couple of weeks before shows debut, but a September run there is likely again for the Carnival/Masterpiece co-production.

    I thought so too.

    I can't control myself and I end up looking at the spoilers.

    Any word on whether this will be the final season?

    Season 4 is already in production and there are various pictures and news clips if any are interested.

    Thank goodness Chummy didn't die. I was really nervous.

    Did you notice the corsett that Chummy was wearing? They showed her husband pulling it tight. Is that what caused her trouble?

    I'm hoping that the Jenny/Jimmy deal is done. It's time for Jenny to move on. Jimmy wasn't as unhappy as I expected him to be.

    I can't believe they had Sister Bernadette leave the church for the doctor. Did any of the nuns know about her feelings for the doctor? I know she talked to one, but I couldn't tell if she just discussed her disconnect with the church or did she reveal that she was in love with the doctor?
