Downton Abbey

Downton Abbey

Downton Abbey

Part 2 of Downton Abbey 3 is on tonight. Bill and I will be watching. I have noticed that a lot of people are Tweeting throughout.

Does anyone just watch a show anymore? Do we really need the real time running commentary, pulse rate, and sigh count of these things?

It’s not that I don’t like you all, our JSI readers, but sheesh, I want my multitasking days to be over.

Take care–Susan Kaye

    I love the concept of watching and “conversing” with your internet friends through twitter and chatrooms as you watch something. I’ve don’t it a couple times with a movie (we’d all do start the movie at a designated time). But I don’t participate in twitter parties for DA – it would make me miss half the show if I wanted to read, respond, and write status updates! I know they are a lot of fun and it’s great to bond with internet buddies, but I want to give my full attention to the episodes of DA! Don’t want to miss a word from the Dowager Countess! πŸ˜‰

    The first time through a movie, I want to focus on the screen so that I don’t miss a word. Even when I’m watching something with fellow Snark Queen Susan Kaye, even when it’s proving to be a world-class dud, I keep quiet.

    It’s after the movie that we talk … and talk and talk. Usually with food or a cup of coffee.

    Second viewings? Ah, now that’s another story. We interrupt, we make snide observations, we supply alternate versions of dialog … it’s like an in-person Twitter Party. πŸ™‚

      Yes, yes, yes, my friend, I think we need another round mercilessly taunting Ciaran Hinds for his execrable part to play in A&E’s Jane Eyre. All the commentary on his sideburns is worth the price of admission. πŸ˜‰

    I agree, Meredith and Laura. I don’t like to talk while I watch a movie the first time. Hubby drives me nuts. He’s always talking about how unrealistic the movie is, how the characters would never say that, etc., etc. etc.

      So does mine, Robin. In the theater. As in, right in the middle of The Hobbit. He enjoyed the movie, but couldn’t help making comments. And men say we women are the talkers…

        I know. Right? What’s up with that? I don’t like to critique movies while I watch them. It takes me totally out of the moment. My hubby talks more than I do, no matter what the studies say.

Why yes, we DO want a piece of your mind. ;-)
