I recently noticed that Season 2 of Downton Abbey was recently added to Amazon Prime Instant. I had been waiting to watch the series on Netflix Instant for a while.
After deciding to sit down and start season 2, I noticed the title said “Original UK Version”. UK Version? There’s a difference between the US and UK version?
After watching Season 1 on PBS here in The States, I was concerned that I would be lost if I started watching the UK version of Season 2. It turns out I might be. Apparently both versions have the same actors and story, but the US version has 2 whole hours edited out.
Apparently, being American has made me too stupid to enjoy the series in its entirety. I now plan on watching the UK version of Season 1 to see what I’ve missed, then continue into Season 2.
