Incoming Yuppie Cocaine: "Downton Abbey" Series 4 Clip

So “Downton Abbey”, our once quaint little British import that has devolved into a full-fledged telenovela, is getting ready to come back for its fourth series (and Christmas Special addendum). The British get to see it this month but it doesn’t air in America until January because of continued monarchist repression.

Here’s the new clip, in which Lady Mary brings effortless snark into the world of epic mourning.

Losing a loved one is an ache that never goes away. That said, I think Mary could work out some of her heartbreak by screwing another Turkish ambassador in half.

Dustin posted the first trailer a couple of weeks ago, but I’ll post it again here so that you aren’t forced to move your index finger an extra sixteenth of an inch in that extra click (WebMD assures me that this would give you seven different forms of cancer).

My favorite part is how there’s a miniature montage of several people in quick succession sipping tea. The Dowager Countess must have said something scandalous about the new black character. Sorry. African-British character.

I’m not sure if I still watch this show despite it becoming a train wreck, or because of it, but I do know that I am sticking with it until the Great Depression just to watch the whole thing disintegrate. Earl Grantham keeps losing all his money during one of history’s biggest bubbles, I can only imagine that when it pops somehow Thomas is going to end up running the place with the Earl as his footman, and Edith as his beard.

    I guess I fail to see how it's become a train wreck :-/ I love it. there. I said it.

  • Bea Pants

    Train wreck is a bit extreme. But it's definitely gotten a lot more soapy since the first season aired.

    I love you for your snark.

    1. Soooooo, Fellowes named the baby George because he's enamored of little Prince George, methinks. I would have thought that Lady Mary would have named the baby Mathew, given that Branson named his baby Sybil.

    2. Lady Mary definitely needs to screw another Turkish diplomat in half.

    3. At this point, I only watch it for the costume porn and the tiara porn and because I WANT THAT LIBRARY.

  • Jaime

    I assumed Lady Mary named him George because it was a very popular name for boys at the time, on account of King George V. I think the season had been filmed before Prince George was born. Besides, naming him after Matthew would have been terribly sentimental and that's not very in character for Lady Mary

  • BiblioGlow

    Plus then there would be two babies named after dead parents on this show, and even for Downton that's a little dramatic. Although as long as there is Carson baby-dandling, I will watch. Or Carson doing anything, really.
