Oh...and an off-screen death for Green? That was too good a fate for that bastard. I call Fellowe-nious BS.
Perhaps others have commented on this before, but the actress who plays Marnie bears a striking resemblance to Mary-Louise Parker, and her character is the same sorta type-A control freak that Parker played in "Boys on the Side."
As for this ep, as someone who,didn't watch previous seasons, I'd LOVE to know who got who drunk before Elijah and Marnie had sex.
Oh...and we all know about her famously bad choices in Lady's Maids.

Oh how I WISH someone would smack that indulgent smile off Cora's face and wisen her up juuuuuuuuust a little. When she kept going on about her F*CKING church bazaar, I wanted to shake her until her jewels fell off. Her mother-in-law and sister-in-law both know her daughter is pregnant and she doesn't. Her daughter and son-in-law know her niece is in a potentially scandalous relationship,and she doesn't. She's just clueless and it's irritating!!!!!!
Rose was added because Sybil died and they needed a new sweet young thing to continue to appeal to the same demographic. I agree with you though...she's cartoonish. Same with Barrow this season--he's looking for trouble and drama where there is none.
"continue on this journey..."
"It's been quite a journey..."
"And the journey begins...."
"I can continue my journey at home...."
Losing weight is a journey? Was gaining it a day trip...or perhaps a holiday weekend? The euphemistic, romantic language for what these people put themselves through / are put through is silly and misleading.
Oh Hannah.....sweet, young, idealistic Hannah....a job's a job, and you need money to pay your $2100 in rent every month.
I'm kinda enjoying the Marnie / Ray thing, even if they're a bit loud, and speaking of loud...
...mid-coital blathering is NEVER a good idea Shoshanna.
GREAT episode--now we can stop hitting the snooze button and get outta bed.
Green is headed for a WORLD o' hurt---and I can't wait. :-). Be honest--you wanted Mrs. Hughes to grab a riding crop off the wall of the boot room and crack his bloody skull bloody hard 'till it bloody bleeds, didn't you?????
BRAVA Lady Mary--who knew you had a human side.
DOUBLE BRAVA to Lady Rosamunde for being supportive of Lady Edith.
Winners of the "GROW UP!" award: Daisy and Ivy (c'mon--Alfred's no hottie compared to James), "Lady" Rose (who's not exactly acting like a lady).

Split the difference: I suppose you're right about Sheldon's personality--I guess we'll have to see if the writers "evolve" his character more.
As for the stargazing, I hardly think it's a private / reserved car--not on a train meant to accommodate dozens of people.
I didn't really care for his "schtupping" women purely for the "exercise" either--go to a gym if you want exercise. It's not that I found it distasteful--I just didn't think it added anything to the story, other than to set us up for drama in his having sex with the suspect.
As for your comment about "the requirement that every show on tv ... jump on the gay rights band wagon", I hardly think the presence of a relatively innocuous gay character amounts to a gay rights rally. The world has gay people in it--shouldn't television reflect that?
