One thought on “A St. Paul girl returns to the James J. Hill House for a “Downton Abbey” Season 3 sneak peek

  1. Sounds like it was a fun evening!  I am extremely jealous.

    At first, I thought of Downton Abbey as my guilty pleasure.  There is a certain “Gone With The Wind” nostalgia to it; and I remind myself that most of the world didn’t get to live in comfort or, well, vote.  But, darn it, the clothes are just so gorgeous!

    But anybody dismissing the series as yet another memory album of “When Rich White Men Ruled” would be missing the point.

    Downton Abbey is about change (and Gone With the Wind, for that matter.)  These characters have lived the life expected of them, and now they find the world changing around them.  What will they do?  How will they cope?  Will they change, too?

    The process of change is a universal theme, and we all must deal with it, regardless of the color of our skin or our social level or our beliefs.  Sometimes, we will accept and cope heroically, and somtimes we won’t.

    I can’t wait to see what happens to these characters in Season Three!
