    The movie! The movie! Shannon, Brandi and Therese are so excited to reunite to talk about the brand new Downton Abbey movie. We couldn’t be more excited–and worried. The chairs need to be set up! Edith’s ball gown is missing! The servants are revolting! And the King and Queen are coming to Downton! On the plus side…#BoyfriendForBarrow.

    Join us for all the the sweet, silly, gorgeous, ridiculous details of what we seriously hope will be the first of many more Downton Movies. So put on your tiaras (It’s OK even if you’re not married) and join us for a “Fast and Furious'“ rundown of the new film.. NOTE: Spoilers abound so if you haven’t seen it yet, press pause, watch the film, and then come back. On second thought, nothing will really surprise you, so stick with us.

    [99b] REPLAY Season 6, Post-Finale Celebration: #LADA

    [Season 6, Post-Finale Celebration] - Withdrawal, denial, grief...There's a Crawley-shaped hole in our Sunday nights, so we're excited that some of our smartest, funniest listeners are helping us deal with Life After Downton Abbey. This 'Very Special Podcast' features your memories, questions and wisecracks about things like: That extremely short period of time when we actually liked Bates; The long and fractious friendship of besties4ever Isobel and Violet; and all those scary appliances, cunning devices, and stylish ladypants that showed us just how inevitable change was. A huge thank you to this show's contributors*, as well as to all of you who listened, tweeted, facebooked, watched the show with us in sparkly headbands, and otherwise supported the podcast for all these years.
    Please raise your glasses for a final toast to our beloved Downton Abbey...and to all us crazy fans.

    [99a] REPLAY Season 6, Series Finale: Happy Endings

    [99a] REPLAY Season 6, Series Finale: Happy Endings

    [Season 6, Series Finale] - No more secrets, no more lies-just happiness bursting on the series finale of our beloved Downton Abbey. As the captains of #TeamEdith, we wave our flags as she leaps over the final hurdle to her ride into the sunset (the dreaded mother-in-law test) and crosses the finish line with a gold medal. You are woman, Edith! Go forth and conquer. Meanwhile, cottages abound, relationships are restored, and everyone (who's straight) is headed for a wedding (if Isobel can break her beloved out of his plaid bathrobe prison) And in other "excitement": Daisy gets a haircut; Thomas might get to serve cheese again; and a mini murderous Bates is let loose on the world. Maybe we're not so electrified by those downstairs developments, but at least nobody died! Before you contact us with tips for surviving Life After Downton Abbey (#LADA), raise your crooning voices and a glass of champagne and join us in thanking and berating dear Julian, celebrating this wonderful show, and bidding farewell to the Abbey.

So Funny!

Great podcast, but I cannot give you a 5 because you hate Anna & Bates. No one hates Anna & Bates!

But I love the way the ladies play off of each other and they give a great recap of the show. Keep up the good work!

Wanted to Like it but…

I wanted to like this because I love the show. But the hosts were just too opposite to the nature of the show. Very high school giggley and cussy for my taste. They were not very funny, nor do they need to be. People can be funny without trying so hard to have a zinger in every sentence. That’s a half-hour television comedy sit-com thing. An occasional zinger carries much more and much further than a ton of not so funny multitude of attempts.

Can we ever just discuss the show and stop laughing?

Pros: Slightly funny and it's interesting to get 4 perspectives in one podcast

Cons: They get so off topic it takes forever to get to an actual opinion or analysis. Constantly making fun of everything in the show so I'm not even sure if they enjoy it. Plus the laughter and side chatter gets to be obnoxious. It's understandable since they're friends but for the listener it gets annoying.
