I'm wondering though [In reply to] Can't Post

if Thomas is going to change now that the family & staff have basically said "yes, we know, and we're not only okay with it, we're going to promote you." He seemed in the Christmas episode to be stepping into his responsibility as under-butler, and watching out for others - James especially, but also Mrs. Patmore.

Although I also wondering, with the first Mrs. Bates dead, Carlisle apparently muzzled, and O'Brien apparently leaving for India, who's going to be the villain now?

The way we imagine our lives is the way we are going to go on living our lives.

it just leapt into my mind... [In reply to] Can't Post

that the family seemed way more at ease with Thomas than they were with Edith. I won't try to look too deeply into that since I don't know how historically accurate their reactions and attitudes are.

I don't argue that Weisz isn't good in the part [In reply to] Can't Post

but the character struck me as representing an outdated masculine viewpoint. Not surprised it was written in the mid-50s.

Found a review by a woman who agrees with me:

Yay! bonus episode! [In reply to] Can't Post

I hope it will all (including the Lydia & Gigi vlogs) come out on DVD when they're done. Not that I want them to be done.

I was delighted to see this exchange in the comments. Kristin mentioned that it was her birthday and that having a bonus LBD episode was the best present either. A little below that I found this exchange. Look at the names. No, they aren't already friends. Like Tolkien, P&P brings very different people together!

Fatima El Messaoudi Happy birthday Kristin Chupka Rosen!<3

Kristin Chupka Rosen Thanks, Fatima El Messaoudi!

I'm really hoping for a DVD too. [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd like for it to include all the tweets and tumblirs as well as the different vlogs. And the Pemberly website and Collins and Collins website and even the Novelty Exposures website and everything.

My daughter loves Jane Austen, but hasn't watched this series because she doesn't have a very fast internet connection at home. So she's really hoping for a DVD. I think Bernie Su said that was a possibility.
