Hello Downton Abbey fans!

Let's watch the Downton Abbey Season 3 premiere! Season 3 is premiering on January 6th on KVIE (PBS).

The premiere show is 120 minutes long, so let's record it on DVR (it's on from 9-11pm, which might be a bit late on a Sunday night) and then watch it on Monday night from 6pm - 8pm. It's cold out and now's a great time to watch some excellent television and drink hot tea or cocoa.

I can't host at my place, but I'm willing to help host, bring snacks and help clean up. Is anyone able to host us at their house?

Meetup allows us to limit the number of people, so if you can only fit a certain number of people in your living room, we can set the number of attendees to that number. I have set it now to 4 people, but if someone is open to having more people we can change it later. If the list is already full and you can host it and can have four of us please let us know. You can join the waiting list and leave us a note.

It's going to be an exciting season....

"The war is over, but intrigue, crisis, romance, and change still grip the beloved estate in the thrilling new season of Downton Abbey. Written and created by Julian Fellowes, with its all-star returning cast and Oscar-winning guest star Shirley MacLaine, Downton Abbey, Season 3 premieres January 6, 2013 on Masterpiece classic!"

Downton Abbey, Series II (Episode 6)
"Downton Abbey" continues with the Spanish flu sweeping through the household and infecting Cora, Lavinia and Mr. Carson, among others. Mary, Sybil and Robert, meanwhile, each face a moment of truth.
duration: 120 min

If you haven't seen Downton Abbey, Season 1 is on Netflix.

    Please lemme know if the date changes, as I will change my RSVP if I can't attend and let Kerry have my spot... But I will need to borrow it at some stage so I can catch up :)

    I've got a DVR and I think my place should be cozy enough, but I won't be back from LA until late that night and the following night I'm heading to San Diego for the rest of the week...
    If you guys can't find a place to watch it and don't mind waiting until that weekend, I can record it and host?

    I suppose we could watch it here, as long as folks are ok with a cuddly cat an an overly affectionate dog?

      So, I think you were saying the other day that we'd have to find someplace with a DVR to watch it, unless you can record and finalize the DVD to be played on a different DVD player? Let me know what the deal is with that and if we can make it work at my place or not.

      I only know how DVRs work, I don't know about recording from a DVR onto a DVD. :) We are still looking for a location... anyone have an available DVR/space for us?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
