Ready for Downton Abbey season 5? I know I am! Don’t watch it alone though; live chat here while you watch the premiere of Downton Abbey Season 5 with me from 9 p.m.-10:40 p.m.

You can also get the live chat on Georgia Public Broadcasting’s Desperate for Downton blog.

Here is how it works: Type in your name, type in your comment and voila! You’re in the chatroom with polite like minds who have a lot to say about the action between Lady Mary and her suitors. I will moderate the chatroom action along with Desperate for Downton co-blogger Rachel Buchman.

(If you’re a Twitter fiend, you can also join in PBS’s Downton Abbey Twitter chat even tonight by following the hashtag #downtonpbs.)

This is the third year we have been doing these live chats and they are a hoot. Plus you never know whom you’ll reach. While watching an episode during season 3, one chatroom participant mentioned she was ill and shut-in. She thanked us for conducting the live chat because  otherwise she would have been completely alone that night.

(Sigh) That’s what it’s all about folks!
