A friend in Europe, who had already seen D.A. Series 3, warned me to expect greatness. He was entirely correct. Shirley was so very good. I had to remind myself afterwards that it was Shirley; I only saw the character she created. It was a wonderful episode and am looking forward to next week.

I just have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it! I did not watch the last 2 seasons and it did not matter at all, it was pretty easy to follow.

Shirley was perfect in my opinion. Her addition to this cast I thought was such an added treat to what they already have going on. And the words used here to describe her performance...."wonderful", "spice", "greatness", "brilliant", I totally agree!!

Congratulations Shirley!!

Great job, Shirley !!! Loved the humor and the glamour you brought to the show. You and Maggie Smith should have a spin-off series!

i'm home with the flu but i just wanted to add
that my favorite scene with Maggie Smith was
when she mistook Lord Grantham for the help
(asking him if she might have a drink)
because he was in a short dinner jacket for
the first time. His reaction was so subtly priceless.
And my favorite scene with Shirley was when
she was finishing up her dinner at the dinner
table annoying the lot with her progressive
ideas and contrariness. She was great and
so was everyone else at the table as a
comic ensemble.
Also loved that line in the church:
Maggie (something to the effect of)
"how nice it is to see the future unfolding"
and Shirley (something to the effect of)
"yes as long as you remember it will in no
way resemble the past."
One of many striking truisms uttered during
this first episode of the third season.
Back to bed. Soft Grin...
