The Seven Words Women Long to Hear

“I do love you so terribly much.”

--Matthew Crawley (Dan Stephens) to Lady Mary Crawley (Michelle Dockery) on last night's season 3 premiere of the BBC Series “Downton Abbey.” It's an awful show. Sorry. I watch it because Patricia likes it but it's a soap opera with high production values. But there are rewards. Chiefly:

  • Anything the Dowager Countess (Maggie Smith) says. God, she's good.
  • Anywhere Jessica Brown Findlay (Lady Sybil) stands. Yowsah.

Last night I liked the battle between O'Brien and Thomas. Hope it continues. I like the chumminess, as men marrying into this crazy family, between Matthew and the bomb-throwing chauffeur dude.

That's it. Get better, show. And somebody give me my mash-up between “Downton” and “Boardwalk Empire.”
