About four months ago my girlfriend and I binge-watched all of the first season of Downton Abbey. In the beginning I couldn’t help but wonder how anyone could watch a show about British aristocrats in the early 20th century. But then something strange happened. Out of nowhere, my girlfriend would start laughing at jokes that were flying entirely under my radar. The moment that I learned how to read all the subtle non-verbal queues in the show was like being born deaf and having a cochlear implant turned on for the first time. Immediately I wrote up a post about my revelation, soon followed by the video The Boyfriend’s Guide to Downton Abbey – Season 1.
So four months have passed and the video has slowly but surely reached its core audience who have repeatedly demanded that we make a Season 2 recap. In that time, the girlfriend and I have binge-watched all of Season 2 twice over because of how great it is! If Season 1 was all about fox hunts and flower shows, well, Season 2 is a world apart! There’s so much going on here that I’ve had to split it into two different videos. So without furhter ado, here’s The Boyfriend’s Guide to Downton Abbey – Season 2, Part 1!
