I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts about Julian Fellowes, creator of "Downton" writing for NBC and their proposed similar series, "The Gilded Age".

I hope Fellowes retained tight control over the storyline and actors selected, at the very least. Most PBS viewers don't take kindly to commercial television with its incessant, ridiculous, commercials.

Gail....This is the first I've heard about The Gilded Age. I found an article online that says Julian Fellowes won't start writing it until Downton is over.
I know what you mean about the commercials on network TV. I NEVER watch the shows live---only my DVR recordings so I can fast forward over the ads. Here is the link for the article I just read:
Thanks for the news. xo, Rosemary

I wonder if Fellowes has finished writing Season Six of "Downton". They'll have to start filming soon if they want to wind it up completely next December in England.

American television is awful and the executive big-wigs kow-tow to the advertisers. Not one ounce of good taste is left. I hope Fellowes told them, "I'll do it but you'll do it my way." and didn't let dollar signs cloud his vision.

Thanks for the link, Rosemary.

Gail....I watched a movie on network tv last night that I had recorded on my DVR. I counted the number of ads in each commercial break and there were NINE of them each time. I wish I had counted the number of breaks too. It's pure torture for the viewers.
Julian Fellows should think about this before he sells his new series to a network rather than PBS.
Have a great Sunday, the first day of daylight savings time.

Gail....P.S. -- I wasn't watching the ads, I was clicking through them.

Vanity Fair online had a little snip from Maggie Smith. She says it would seem likely that she won't be there for Season 6 ... As Granny would be 122 years old.

She's right, but this is very sad. I believe they are filming in England already. I don't think there is any word on her appearance yet.

The thought of no Downton anymore has most of my friends into deep depression. I always keep a couple shows in my DVR, as I see watching Downton regularity for all my remaining years ... Much the same as I will always watch Joan Hickson as Miss Marple ... Over and over and over.

Sending hugs ... I'm catching up on my blogs. No matter when I read them, yours are so very enjoyable.

Karen in VA -- Several people I know are reading the Paris book and are telling me how much they are liking it. Sounds good. Thanks.
I honestly feel that Maggie Smith will be in Season 6 of DA and when her character dies, so will the series. She shouldn't worry about not being able to get work because of this series. I watch a LOT of British TV and I always think to myself that there are only about a dozen actors and actresses and they appear in everything.
Damien Lewis from Homeland will be in Wolf Hall, the tudor series coming to PBS in April.
Your DVR must hold more than mine. I have to erase things mine fills up so quickly. But I hardly ever watch anything a second time. I'll be watching CBS tonight. Madam Secretary, The Good Wife and Battle Creek, a new series that started last Sunday that I like a lot.
Enjoy your Sunday night.
