It's app time! Since I recently mentioned Downton Abbey, I thought I'd tell you how I initially found it. PBS has this handy (free!) app that lets you preview their most popular series, it includes schedules for your local station, spotlights of selected shows, and even limited-time viewing of complete programs.
You can even share what you're watching on Twitter and Facebook. I am particularly enjoying episodes of Julia Child. It's not the original French chef series, but she introduces a chef each episode and then that chef cooks a signature dish. It's a nice distraction when you're awoken at five in the morning by yet another cat fight. But that is a story for another post. Anyway, it's free, it's well-designed, polished, and it's educational. Get it!
