Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida, Europe and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Quality writing & acting wins again! Downton Abbey scores 4 at Emmys, as U.S. eagerly awaits Season 2's melodrama amidst WWII on PBS January 8th
ITN's The Showbiz 411 video: Downtown Abbey scores Emmy success, nabs 4 awards, including Best Mini-series, Best Supporting Actress (Dame Maggie Smith), Best Writing and Best Directing at 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, ATAS, telecast on Fox-TV, September 18, 2011. http://youtu.be/YM_g9hxdYMU
Downton Abbey ITV1 promo
I loved everything about this show and saw each episode at least twice -uninterrupted and non-distracted. (Like I was watching game film!)
Already being seen on ITV1 in the U.K., I can't wait for the second season to finally get to PBS!
Just under 15 weeks from yesterday -January 8th!
And if you didn't see it earlier this year, the first year of Downton Abbey re-airs on PBS beginning Sunday, December 18th at 9:00 p.m. Eastern/Pacific.
Trust me, you will hear about that as you know that PBS will be mentioning it every five minutes after Thanksgiving, and maybe even do a print ad campaign to create some synergy with the new season starting in January.

PBS vids with the cast of Downton Abbey are here:
Australia's Channel Seven video: The hosts of Better Homes & Gardens went to Highclere Castle where Downton Abbey is filmed to give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at upcoming Season 2, the amazing castle and meet the very talented cast.
Thanks to my observant friends, loyal confidantes and trend-spotting spies around the world, I got tipped-off to this video and can tell you that TODAY, Sept. 19th, is the first day that you can pre-order the new Decca Music CD containing the soundtrack of Season 2 of Downton Abbey produced by John Lunn,via Amazon.co.uk.
And it features the series theme, Did I Make The Most of Loving You?, being sung by Mary-Jess, a.k.a. Mary-Jess Leaverland, which I have videos of below.
In the U.S., you can also now pre-order it thru the American office of Amazon.com, but it comes as an Import and runs $28.68 plus shipping.
The CD will be released September 27th, 2011.
See the British link above to see and hear the selection of songs.
