Posted on 20 Nov 2012

"Downton Abbey: Season 1"

Are you missing your favorite Sunday night British drama? Or maybe you’d like to get caught up on what you’ve missed? The Thanksgiving, we’ve got you covered! Meet the kissing cousins, get insider knowledge about the “Turkish Incident,” and practice saying “weekend” with your most imperious Maggie face – the “Downton Abbey: Season 1” marathon airs Thanksgiving night!

Experience (or relive) the glory that is “Downton Abbey” Thursday, Nov. 22, starting at 6:30 p.m. We’ll be airing episode 1-4 all through Thanksgiving night. And that’s not all we have to offer!  We’ll be airing a new special, “Downton Abbey Revisited,” this Sunday at 9 p.m.  Be sure to check back with us for news about the program and an exciting, exclusive Season 3 member gift surrounding the broadcast later this week!

Even better, do you want to feel like you’re a part of the action? Then join the AETN Foundation Tuesday, Dec. 18, at Argenta Theater for a special preview screening of “Downton Abbey: Season 3.” We’ll be looking for you, dressed in your best Edwardian or Jazz Age finery!
