THE DOWAGER COUNTESS IS NOT IMPRESSED  4:31 pm November 14, 2012

Daily Caller Outraged: Queen Michelle Obama Bogarting All The Downton Abbeys

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Pissy bitchesWell we never! Did you know that Queen Michelle Obama is so enamored of the BBC televisionne programme “Downton Abbey” that she “begged” to get season three before the rest of us servants, and they gave it to her??? The Daily Caller knows, and they are, predictably, taking exceptionne.

So much for being an average American citizen. The perks of having the last name “Obama” don’t stop at living luxuriously in the White House or flying around on Air Force One.

In fact, the perks extend to something far more exclusive and unattainable for your everyday American: The Obamas get to watch the third season of “Downton Abbey” before the rest of the country does.

Michelle Obama is so enamored with the series that she just couldn’t wait until it airs in the U.S. in January and “begged” british TV channel ITV to get the third season’s episodes early, UK’s The Telegraph reports. Ask and ye shall receive — if you’re the first lady.

Fetch our pearls that we may don them and then grasp them all to pieces! Why she gotta be like that? Is there something wrong with BET?

How else are you hurt-of-butt, Daily Caller?

But what about the rest of us?! We want to know if Cousin Matthew’s junk magically starts to work so he can marry Lady Mary, and we want to know more about this alleged war-wounded other “cousin.” We, too, want to see Shirley McClaine and Maggie Smith passive-aggressively interact with each other. Ugh.

The rest of us plebeiens [sic] will just have to wait until ”Downton Abbey’s” Jan. 6 premiere to find out.

Vacations, and transportation to places and Secret Service protectionne and “Downton Abbey”? Will Moochelle Obama’s perfidies never cease? IMPEAzzzzzzzzzz.

I had my cousin in London Betamax it and send it to me, so there!

actor212 November 14, 2012 at 4:51 pm

I had a cousin transcribe it into long hand using a quill pen and post it to me by tramp steamer!

RufusTFirefly November 15, 2012 at 12:45 am

I had it sent in Morse code via the Atlantic cable.

Yellerdawg November 14, 2012 at 4:34 pm

Well, it's not like it's the next season of Honey Boo Boo or anything. That would just be out of bounds.

nounverb911 November 14, 2012 at 4:34 pm

I read on the internet that HBB gets married next season.

docterry6973 November 14, 2012 at 4:41 pm

About time. I was starting to think she didn't have any cousins at all.

Botlrokit November 14, 2012 at 4:43 pm

…or gets pregmant. "Statutory" is really a legal term, but it does have four syllables — therefore, her cousins prolly don't know what it means.

Negropolis November 14, 2012 at 11:46 pm

She was on the verge of being a spinster by Georgian standards.

savethispatient November 14, 2012 at 4:34 pm

The real news: the Obama kids haven't hooked their mom up on bit torrent yet.

SmutBoffin November 14, 2012 at 4:39 pm

No shit! I wondered why some staffer didn't just pirate it for them, then I remembered something about the Prezident's oath of office including stuff about "upholding laws" or whatever.

BonoboReview November 14, 2012 at 4:39 pm

Watching season 3 right now. Take that NOBAMA!

BadKitty904 November 14, 2012 at 4:40 pm

Conspiracy!

actor212 November 14, 2012 at 4:53 pm

Oh come ON! Can you imagine the right wing outrage if Obama was pirating? Fuck, suddenly it would become the single most important bill in Congress, apart from the inevitable impeachment.

savethispatient November 14, 2012 at 4:55 pm

Haha, yes, that is all painfully true.
My initial comment may have not been intended as a factual statement.

CindynEncinitas November 14, 2012 at 4:34 pm

I hope no bitches get cut over this one! How veddy insolent!

luckismine November 14, 2012 at 4:35 pm

Big deal. When she gets a walk on in Mad Men Season 6, then she'll be someone.

docterry6973 November 14, 2012 at 4:40 pm

She'll have a walk-on as cleaning lady #2. This is Madison Avenue in the sixties, after all.

SorosBot November 14, 2012 at 4:44 pm

That would certainly be better than Nancy Reagan's special guest appearance in Diff'rent Strokes.

CommieDad November 14, 2012 at 4:45 pm

Ahhh, memories. That's what convinced me that I wanted to grow up to be a pot head.

actor212 November 14, 2012 at 4:56 pm

She's lined up a cameo shamble in Walking Dead. I think she's the zombie that does Carl, finally.

Whoops! My bad.

mayor_quimby November 15, 2012 at 9:22 pm

I would love to see that. Little budding psychopath!

deanbooth November 14, 2012 at 4:35 pm

She not only has the nerve to live in the White House…

starfanglednut November 14, 2012 at 5:33 pm

And not even in the servants quarters!

Weedlord BonerHitler November 14, 2012 at 7:41 pm

(Hugs you) Hey, how do, pretty lady? You're looking good.

rmjagg November 14, 2012 at 7:00 pm

yes and what other First Lady in the history of this country has had the unmitigated arrogance to live in the White House when the rest of us don't ? go ahead , name one … ;-)

WhatTheHeck November 14, 2012 at 4:36 pm

What did she know about season 3 and when did she know it before us?

ibwilliamsi November 14, 2012 at 7:02 pm

I smell a Special Prosecutor!

Negropolis November 14, 2012 at 11:47 pm

My Ken Starr senses are tingling!

Sounds like I need to see a doctor.

SorosBot November 14, 2012 at 4:36 pm

"The Obamas get to watch the third season of “Downton Abbey” before the rest of the country does."

Except that if it's already aired in the UK, that means a shitload of people in the US have already seen it. Has the Daily Caller never heard of BitTorrent?

emmelemm November 14, 2012 at 4:37 pm

And how come those British people get to see it first? We kicked their asses back a couple centuries ago so we could be NUMBER ONE!! Where's the respect?

savethispatient November 14, 2012 at 4:41 pm

The British people don't get to see it first; they're just living it.

SorosBot November 14, 2012 at 4:46 pm

I know; it's the same way with Doctor Who, though at least since BBC America picked up the US broadcasts it's just a few hours after the UK airing, rather than the several months behind than Sci-Fi was showing it. (And gee, what a surprise that lead to a lot more Americans watching it live instead of torrenting it). Damn Brits!

savethispatient November 14, 2012 at 5:00 pm

Automatic thumbs up for mentioning Doctor Who! The whole Obama family should sit down on Saturdays in the early evening and watch it together.

NB: From behind the couch, especially if the Weeping Angels are involved.

snickersnack November 14, 2012 at 6:14 pm

Don't blink.

WordSaladNation November 14, 2012 at 9:05 pm

Okay, so could you help a brother get started with "Doctor Who"? There are so many "series" to watch, and I always confuse David Tennant with the guy from Pet Shop Boys, which is very confusing, when you think of it.

Which incarnation should I start with? Is one better than an other?

actor212 November 14, 2012 at 5:06 pm

Same with the most recent season of Primeval. It aired here about five hours after the live Beeb.

Shellwith2Ls November 15, 2012 at 10:43 am

My mind was blown this weekend on seeing Conner from Primeval in Band of Brothers.

Crank_Tango November 14, 2012 at 4:38 pm

Oh you mean that gay porn downloading service? Never heard of it.

viennawoods13 November 14, 2012 at 6:22 pm

I do believe that the last NPR pledge drive in oct was giving all 3 seasons- they made a biiig fuss about season 3 being a part of the boxed set- for a $240 pledge.

MacRaith November 14, 2012 at 4:36 pm

So let me get this straight: The Daily Caller is now opposed to wealthy and powerful people getting perks the rest of us don't get? When did this happen?

ManchuCandidate November 14, 2012 at 4:41 pm

Only those that are brown people

SorosBot November 14, 2012 at 4:48 pm

Oh I'm sure they would be equally upset about Ann Romney getting to legally watch those episodes early. Right?

Mojopo November 14, 2012 at 4:43 pm

Exactly, and blow me the fuck down, Popeye!

finallyhappy November 14, 2012 at 4:37 pm

Because really no one gets to see television shows or movies before anyone else ever- unless you live in the White House. Hell, I've seen movies that never made it out of the theater again- except on DVD- and I have no connections at all. The main thing is did she get season 7 of Lost(cause I need help figuring out the end of season 6)

BadKitty904 November 14, 2012 at 4:37 pm

Dang. The Neo-cons ARE grasping at straws.

Now, they're just being silly…er…

What's a Downtown Abbey? [spit] Is that some kind of gay thing downtown, where there are people dressed up in kinky costumes?

DaSandman November 14, 2012 at 4:39 pm

No that's a German Sparkle Party.

SmutBoffin November 14, 2012 at 4:40 pm

Nope. You're thinking of a Tea Party rally.

Canmon November 14, 2012 at 4:41 pm

That's Sesame Street.

savethispatient November 14, 2012 at 4:44 pm

It's a fantasy world where rich people have deep concern for the plight of the poor people, as long as the poor people don't have any funny ideas.

Yep.
Mr. Fatale leaves the room.

(The Tudors, on the other hand, has enough sexytime to make all the yucky history worth it.)

actor212 November 14, 2012 at 5:15 pm

The Tudors did a really good job making that era come alive while staying true to the history of the time.

The Ken Follett books are pretty good with their era as a backdrop to the story. The TV miniseries…well, the less said the better.

MissTaken November 14, 2012 at 5:32 pm

The episodes when Henry was married to his second Catherine (the one he beheaded for banging every boy in town) were full-on porn. No other way to describe it.

Weedlord BonerHitler November 14, 2012 at 7:21 pm

You can come sit by me. I have no clue what these people are talking about except that it's a fillim. We can talk about the courage of Gloria Swanson in accepting the Norma Desmond role. Or something.

They used to be, but analogue switch off is complete, and ITV has an HD channel which broadcasts in 1080i (over DVB-T2 for terrestrial).

ETA: it's presumably 1080i50, though, which can pose issues if your set really wants to run at 60Hz.

That Knee-Gress is dressing in the fancy clothes of white people and eating caviar and drinking champagne with that BLACKETY-BLACKETY-BLACK half-white Knee-Grow in a House that was built for WHITES which it says right in the name and the country has been destroyed because of this, but you SHEEPLE?

If we became British subjects as some wing nuts propose, we could get Downton Abbey at the same time as the homies, just like the Canadians, right? BTW, I boycotted the first two seasons of DA because I knew this was going to happen. Nate Silver told me there was an 84.3% chance of this happening…

Besides, there ARE perks to being First Lady. You get to fly in AirForce One, live in a big beautiful White House with many servants, and you get to tell Teatards to STFU.

Besides, why do Teatards care? It's not like they're going to be watching Downton Abbey anyways.

A bunch of uptight white entitled folks get to sit around and complain about how bad they have it while the people who serve them (e.g. soldiers) get ill and die around them?

Sounds biographical, if you ask me.

Does the Daily Caller really believe that the average tea baggin' GOP wingnut cares about "Downton Abbey"? I doubt they know Downton Abbey from ABBA.

Yes. This is a travesty. That a person like Michelle who is arguably, the world's most powerful woman, would maybe get a small perk now and then. You know, like designer clothes, hanging out with Beyonce, seeing Downton Abbey early. It's the ultimate tragedy. But poor people getting kicked in the remaining teeth they have by rich folk who already have everything but want more, and then having to find the money to pay for said teeth kicking, without help whatsoever from anyone who is remotely human let alone the government – THAT is perfectly OK, because freedumbz.

You'll have to buy a converter if you ever want to play another American DVD on your computer again.

sullivanst November 14, 2012 at 6:45 pm

If you're playing on a PC, you could always get a second drive and leave them set to different regions.

ibwilliamsi November 14, 2012 at 7:00 pm

I found a reasonably priced program called "AnyDVD" that lets you play any region – after I blew it on my computer watching "Ashes to Ashes" before the USA release.

sullivanst November 14, 2012 at 7:11 pm

You should be able to switch your region code up to 5 times on a DVD drive. At least, that always used to be the case. It also used to be the case that many, perhaps even most, drives had cracked firmwares available that made them either multiregion or infinitely region-switchable.

I'm slightly surprised that AnyDVD is still available for sale – it works by cracking CSS (like DeCSS, binary distribution of which has been relentlessly and successfully targeted by copyright lawyers armed with DMCA).

malsperanza November 14, 2012 at 10:38 pm

Pfft, I'm disappointed that Michelle is so bush league. In 2008 Laura Bush ordered a new china service, despite the fact that the White House still has the Reagan service, the Clinton service, and about 14 other china services. The official George W. Bush State China Service (total price tag: $492,798*) consists of 320 14-piece place settings. It arrived in January 2009, shortly before the Obamas moved in. I guess Laura was concerned that a couple a black folks from the south side of Chicago might get all panicky if they had to pick out their own dishes.

malsperanza November 14, 2012 at 10:54 pm

Unless you're a fan of tickytacky sixties TV scifi, skip Old Who and start with the 9th Doctor, Christopher Eccleston (just one season, but brilliant). I like Eccleston best, but the following three are all really good, in different ways. The whole thing has an arc, as each Doctor becomes more awsumly powerful, employing the arcane secret powers of the Time Lords to master space and time. So you should watch straight through from there: 10th Doctor (Tennant), then 11th Doctor (Matt Smith), then 12th Doctor (B. H. Obama).

Somewhere in there, if you're curious about the earlier Doctors, I recommend watching a couple of episodes of Four (Tom Baker, the famous one with the long scarf),, perhaps the 4-part Pyramids of Mars, and maybe a couple of Five (Peter Davison).

savethispatient November 14, 2012 at 11:04 pm

Doctor Who was cancelled in the late 80s and came back in 2005, so there's a 26 series from the 60s to the 80s that you can skip for now, I suspect.

From the new series, you can probably jump in at Season 5 from 2010 with Matt Smith as the Doctor. The head writer changed before that season, so it's sort-of a blank slate. Even starting with Season 7 from this year would be fine, you don't need much previous knowledge.

Or start at Season 1 from 2005, with Christopher Ecclestone as the Doctor.

Or just start watching anywhere, really… Each episode is generally fairly stand-alone, although each season will have some kind of story arc.

If you just want to just try an episode or two, this list picks some highlights…

Phew! Did that help? Probably not.

viennawoods13 November 15, 2012 at 6:04 am
