  • Uh oh...Nels is in manopause! In a 19th century version of buying a red convertible, Nels expresses his middleaged angst by taking his wares on the road. There, he boards at a place run by an Irish lass...Katie bar the door! Will he, won't he...

    Who woulda thunk I could ever feel a shred of sympathy for Harriet? But I actually did, even after she disses Nels at the show's start. I think, for once, that Charles' remark (I won't elaborate because I don't want to spoil anything) was a little sanctimonious, albeit in a subtle way. This is a touching episode which deals with the melancholy of aging in a poignant way. One question I have: do any Irish people on this planet actually speak in the way depicted in this episode or was this a gross exaggeration? All in all, a very well-written, keenly observed offering by the LHOTP people.
