  2. Scarlett Johansson Making the Move to TV in Edith Wharton Period Drama

    The average person only uses 10% of their corsets.

    We all know Scarlett Johansson can kick butt literally, but it's been a while since we saw her BAMF-ery demonstrated in a less overtly action-packed role. But that's all about to change—thanks to Sony Television Pictures, Scar Jo is about to ditch her gauntlets and grace the small screen as one of American literature's most ruthless female characters.

  3. ATTN ALL: Erotic Downton Abbey Vacations Are a Thing Now

    "Why hello."

    I'm just going to jump into this one like Thomas jumps into making questionable decisions: There's a Downton Abbey-themed sexcation, and everything about it sounds A M A Z I N G.

    I will take what is mine with cookies and juice boxes.

    The 2014 Emmys take place this Monday (yeah, not Sunday—I know, it's weird), and to celebrate, Mom.me has put together this video of children acting out imagined scenes from the six Outstanding Drama Series nominees. If you're worried about what Game of Thrones scene would even be appropriate for children to reenact, don't worry, they went creative with it and came up with the best possible solution.

  5. Downton Abbey Uses Water Bottle Goof To Raise Money For Charity

    "Caaaaaaaarsooooooooon!"

    What do you do when you make a giant goof and leave a water bottle in the frame of a 1920s era photoshoot? Turn it into something hugely positive, of course! (Or, if you're us, photoshop tentacle dildos into the picture.)

  6. What Other Anachronistic Items Were Left In That Downton Abbey Promo Pic?

    MAAATTHHEWWWW!

    It's been a really tough week in general, so I think I speak for all of us when I say we needed something like this Downton Abbey promo pic to come along. Look at it. Look hard. See something that shouldn't be there, considering Downton is set in the 1920s? Yeah. The person who was supposed to take that water bottle off the mantle just made everyone's week a whole lot more fun.

  8. “Chuffed” Spiked in Merriam-Webster Online Searches Yesterday, Here’s Why and What it Means

    Peter Sokolowski seemed pretty chuffed about it.

    "Chuffed" didn't make my list of 10 Piece of British Slang I'd Like to See Adopted in America, but a lot of readers suggested it after the fact. That's why when lexicographer Peter Sokolowski pointed out that it was spiking in searches on Merriam-Webster's site it caught my attention. Why'd it spike, and what's it mean?

  10. Downton Abbey + Cats = Downton Tabbies [Video]

    What is a weekend?

    We've featured other mashups of Downton Abbey and cats before and of course they were delightful.  There's even a Downton Tabby book.  But this video of cats modeled after the Downton Abbey opening credits is pretty much the best thing ever, not in the least because it was made for the good cause of getting these cats adopted from no-kill animal rescue Pets Alive!
