Season 2 can be watched at PBS!  I haven't actually gotten there yet, but am excited I can watch them after I get through season 1!!

It certainly is great! Season 1 was available on PBS until just after season 2 started on TV. Obviously episode 7 (the one that airs tomorrow) is not up yet but all the other full episodes from this season are up. But they'll only be there until March 6, then they expire, so if you want to catch them on PBS you gotta hurry a bit! Smile

I am dying waiting for tomorrow's show! I'm so glad we've been house sitting while it's been on so I've been able to watch it on their nice TV instead of my small computer at home. I don't usually get attached to shows but this one is so addicting!

I found that, too! We've been watching Season 2 on PBS. It really is hard to go from watching the back to back episodes on Netflix to waiting a week for PBS.

I agree Clare! I was catching up when we first came here to house sit so watched pretty much an episode a day through season one. Going from that to waiting a week has been torture!

I am a masterpiece adict so I watch most of the shows at pbs video that are put out by the masterpiece name.  Only a few I miss when they are available there in which case I have watched them on netflix. 
 
If you do miss it on pbs they occasionally have reruns later on so it is worth checking back before netflix gets it up.  Because it it does rerun they will have it online again.  Oh and they have a lot of other great shows too.  The new great expectations looks like it will be great.

I heard about this for the first time a couple days ago and it looks really interesting. If it's on streaming I'm going to have to check it out.

What ones are your favorite - which other masterpiece ones would you recommend after I finish Downton Abbey?

Oh my gosh, I LOVED the season finale tonight! One of the best episodes!!

ETA: Maggie Smith is the absolute best. She has me totally cracking up every single week. Her eyes alone are so great and then her timing is just impeccable.

Erin, I can't wait to watch it later. I didn't know it was the season finale, though :(

NG- reccomend us some other Masterpieces to watch, please!

Yeah, I'm SO sad!! It was a good ending though. I recorded it so will probably watch it again later too while I'm walking on the treadmill. Smile

Well if you want another period piece they have a ton based on classic literature.  The problem is most of the ones available on netflix are the older versions which aren't always as good.  You would have to rent the videos or wait for a rerun on pbs.  Ones included in that are:
sense and sensibility (new version I think 2008)
Emma (2008)
Miss Austen Regrets (2008
Little Dorrit (2009 I think, maybe 2010)
Mansfield Park (2008)
Northanger Abbey (2008)
Persuasion (same)
Cransford (2008?) and Return to Cranford (not as good as Cransfield but still good)
The Old Curiosity Shop (I remember liking this but haven't seen it again)
Oliver Twist (2009)
South Riding (2011)  I thought this was well acted.  I didn't completely like the ending but it is worth a look if you can find it.  I don't think it is available on netflix so am putting it here but it is worth checking for periodically since they update content all the time.
 
They did a new version of most Jane Austens book the same year. 
 
Ones on Netflix I heard are good but I haven't watched:
Wuthering Heights (2009 version or around there)
 
Classic (so based on classic literature or set in the past) that I have seen and are available on netflix streaming:
North and South (really good I have watched it twice within a 6 mo. period)
Wives and Daughters (also watched twice)
The Diary of Anne Frank (pretty sure the 2010 version is on netflix but you would have to check the synopsis and see if it is the same version I am thinking of.  Really well acted.  I cried but you all know how this story ends)
I will have to see if there are more in this.  I know I have watched a few more but can't remember the titles and netflix doesn't have the easiest search function if you don't know the exact title
 
 
Mystery! (available on netflix streaming):
Inspector Lewis (love this show.  Once you get into it the characters are a lot of fun)
Foyle's War (mysteries set during World War II)
Sherlock (most of you know about this already but it is really good.  Modern retelling of Sherlock Holmes.  Lovely lead actors)
 
Contemporary (also available on netflix streaming):
The Last Enemy (a thriller, mystery, action piece that is not wrapped up in a nice package at the end.  YOu have been warned)
Place of Execution (mystery.  really enjoyed this as well)
 
 
Framed (cute show.  It was on line on the pbs site recently and might be again.  Otherwise don't know if it is on netflix)
 
I will let you know when I watch more classic episodes on netflix if you want and tell you about them.  I need to watch Wuthering Heights.  The thing is I know how the book ends so am hesitant to relive the angst on the tv screen!

Ooo, nice to know! I've been wanting to see this series and this is a great time to stream it since I'm not watching my regular shows this summer! (since we have a bandwidth limit)
