It is the dilemma of the century. It is Super Bowl Sunday AND the next installment of Downton Abbey. The game starts at 6:30. Downton Abbey comes on at 9. And if it’s any game at all, that will be about the time I won’t want to leave it. We’ve been talking about it all weekend.
No, actually, we don’t have a DVR, or even a DVD player that can record on one station while we watch another. We don’t have pay channels, but rather just the very basic cable that comes with the our association dues. Except for sports and good PBS programming, we don’t watch TV.
I can recite dialog from last season’s Downton Abbey. But I can’t tell you who won last year’s Superbowl, or even who played in it!
So you know where my vote’s going.
What will you watch?
