For a certain period of time, I was raving religiously for Downton Abbey. I did not only watch the movie, I even searched for documentaries about the Edwardian Age, the Gilded Age, and read books about countesses and heiresses and lords of that period. I even ordered a cookbook on food that was cooked in the late 19th century
. And I don’t
even know how to cook! England
I tried to write a post for each episode but I had no time. I was too consumed with watching the series and researching. Ah, researching- that old geeky hobby of mine. Anyway, thanks to Downton Abbey I have learned the proper ways of a lady and how to have tea in the appropriate manner. And yes, I have spent a considerable sum of money for a tea set. When the Downton fever was gone from my system, I hit my head on the wall so hard for splurging money on a tea set when I am A FREAKIN COFFEE DRINKER!
So that’s why I hate TV series. Because I can get addicted to it, and I will be self-destructive again- getting late for work because I watched 3 episodes the night before, talk about it almost every day, dream about it, buy stuff that has something to do with it, everything! Ugh, it’s really bad.
I remember when I got hooked on Ugly Betty. I subscribed to fashion magazines and I am not even someone who loves fashion. If there is something I did for fashion, it’s breaking all its rules and looking pretty much un-fashionable all the time.
Now that I am done with Downton Abbey, what’s the next addiction?
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you “Madam Secretary”.
Unlike other TV series which I just happened to watch an episode and then got hooked, I searched for this one.
Downton Abbey has left me a void in me which I needed to fill up. So I looked for something that has to do with politics and there it was- MADAM SECRETARY. Plus, Tea Leoni, the lead actress as Secretary Elizabeth McCord, is also a fan of Patricia Cornwell, one of my favourite writers. So here I am, after a dozen episodes, raving again for a new obsession. A new religion. But don’t worry, I won’t be writing anymore about this. I just need to get this out of my system before I go crazy again.
