"Game of Thrones" + "Downton Abbey" = genius

Do we call this marvelous new ditty “Game of Downton” or “Abbey of Thrones”?

I just can’t wait til the celebrity death match between The Dowager Countess of Grantham and Cersei Lannister.

I’m putting my money on Maggie Smith, y’all.

If Downton Abbey were a video game…

Can’t. Wait.

David Bianculli on Shirley MacLaine’s new role in Season Three of Downton Abbey:



Out of desperation, Cora, his American wife, sends for her wealthy mother to visit, in hopes that the Crawley women can persuade her to finance their lavish lifestyle. The mother, Martha, is played by new cast member Shirley MacLaine, who’s excellent. She doesn’t steal the show — she can’t, not with Maggie Smith already dominating every scene she’s in as Cora’s mother-in-law, the acerbic, sarcastic Dowager Countess — but MacLaine fits in perfectly.

Downton Abbey: Now available in gingerbread!

New season starts in January, so it’s time to get ready for more delightful Maggie Smith moments.

"An aristocrat with no servants is as much use to the county as a glass hammer."
— Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham

Downton Abbey Season 3 Preview (Coming to PBS Jan. 6, 2013) | Masterpiece | PBS (by PBS)

You may have seen a version of this trailer recorded from British TV that was hard to hear clearly. Someone also posted a video of a TV showing a tribute to Shirley Maclaine that includes a couple clips from the show. This is a clean, clear, official version of the trailer. 

Oh… poor Edith!

Boy, the Internet sure loves some Downton Abbey. Here’s the cast as if they were played by dogs and cats. (I don’t know why.)
