Did you think there were enough podcasts about TV, or even, about Downton Abbey? Well, you are wrong because we are adding another. Christina and Allison will be chatting Downton Abbey episode by episode and maybe drinking some tea, too. Follow us on Twitter @ringforteapod!
Downton Abbey The Movie: They’re ACTING!
Now we're really digging into it, or as much as we can remember after watching the movie over a week ago.... Daisy and Andy are engaged and it's a liiiiittle problematic. But besides that there's Violet's attempts to interfere with someone else's inheritance, Tom and Thomas each get a chance at love, Mary becoming the lady detective, and many downstairs shenanigans. Plus, we are assessing whether Allen Leech could be Bond after Tom's heroic actions, because why not?
We are brainstorming our next big podcast idea, so stay tuned!
Downton Abbey The Movie: We Have Drones Now!
The Downton Abbey movie has finally arrived and after so much discussion of our plans, we have finally seen it! We're back to bask in the glow of the movie-going experience and give our overall impressions of the movie! Stay tuned for more movie talk coming soon and let us know your movie thoughts on Twitter @ringforteapod!
6.09 (Part 2) The Finale!
We hash out the last bits of the series finale and our final thoughts on the show itself. From telegrams to telephones, John Bates in prison to Anna Bates in prison, and much, MUCH more, it's been a long road, but we've made it! Join us for this last episode of Downton before the movie!
6.09 (Part 1) The Almost Last Episode
It's the series finale and they are packing A LOT into this one. We are splitting our recap up into two parts, pre-Christmas and post-Christmas (because there always has to be an event at Christmas time...). Just when Edith settles into the idea of being a London spinster, Mary gets to scheming and sets up a dinner with Bertie that just may change everything. After an entire episode about Mary being uncomfortable with Henry's racing, he decides to give it up anyway. But that means he's now trying to find something to do to fill his time.... Isobel gets some news about Lord Merton's health and his son and daughter in law are up to no good as usual. Thomas finds a new job and is saying his goodbyes, Carson is losing his touch, and Downton tries to introduce a new romance in THE LAST EPISODE. One more to go until movie time!
6.08 We Shall Be Married in the Morning!
Allison's voice is a little husky but we're back and chatting the SECOND TO LAST episode of Downton! Edith is still debating whether or not to tell Bertie about Marigold, but loses her opportunity when Mary decides everyone needs to be miserable with her. Everyone finds Mrs. Patmore's B&B misfortunes hilarious, so the Crawleys try to give her some positive publicity. Molesley is trying his hand at molding young minds.
We're cooking up ideas for interim pods until the movie, send us your suggestions! Tweet at us @ringforteapod!
6.07 A Fool Who Knows Nothing
The Crawleys are off to the races! However, the outing ends in disaster, challenging Mary and Henry’s relationship. An exciting opportunity presents itself to Molesley, while Thomas continues to struggle to find his place at the Abbey. Tom and a new four legged addition to Downton both manage to pad this episode with joy. We only have two more episodes left until the (long) countdown to the movie!
