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?
"The kiss was only made better when Sheldon asked Amy to go with him to see the train's engineer. He saved the otherwise disastrous evening with that invitation."
Mmmmmm......I dunno about that. Don't get me wrong--Lord knows the kiss was LONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNG overdue, but I think they missed the follow-thru. Wasn't there a car with a glass roof for stargazing? Wouldn't THAT have been better "redemption" for Sheldon?
Otherwise, I,agree with the reviewer--the ep was rather painful otherwise.

Perhaps, but they'd have a hard time "justifying" why she didn't go out into the field and would stay behind all the time. At least this way, she's still "working."
I disagree. With "Densi" now a part of the team's internal dynamics (for now anyway), a "Nallen" element seems redundant. Plus, you couldn't have that and NOT include some element of jealousy on Eric's part, which starts to make the show more about the team and less about the cases--the balance gets thrown off.
