Many of us here at GeekMom have been champing at the bit for the American premiere of Downton Abbey Season 2, and now at last it’s here–two whole hours of Edward intrigue and house-politics. I’m all a-flutter. To help us endure the long hours until showtime, here’s a clip featuring ten of the Dame Maggie Smith’s most deliciously withering one-liners. (Regrettably absent is the Dowager Countess’s first encounter with electric lights–possibly my favorite moment in all of Season 1.)
I’m sure we’ll have tons to dish about after tonight’s episode…combox afterparty, anyone?
