That's why I posted it in here.
i liked the conversation with the politician's mom about betty. the kids are scared of her and she is a "silly girl". i hope we see her dark side this season. peggy's hair is atrocious. what was that whole "john" "maggie" thing?
and who the fuck is pryce?
excellent season premiere. didn't realize how much i missed draper and co. during the show's downtime till tonight.
[for those who know what the fuck i'm talking 'bout] sarah newlin?!
haha yes i flipped out when i saw her. that girl's agent is AMAZING. in one year, she's had great parts on true blood, the office (pam's sister at the wedding), and now mad men.
what a fucking fantastic season premiere. i also forgot how much i missed these characters. i LOVE their new dynamic. is peggy getting a new romantic interest, or is he gay, too? don finally gets to deal with all the shit he caused, but makes sure to take time for some new poontang. and yeah, super interesting how francis' mom characterized her. i was watching the show with two men (one of which was gabe schoolofruckus) and both of them are staunchly on team don and think betty is psychotic. i'm torn. i fully think don brought this on himself, but she is being a little crazy. also sally is SO OLD!!! i can't wait to see what they do with her character this season. also i'm a little buzzed. i fucking loved this episode.
Great start for the new season. Best show on TV, IMO.
i'm not really on either of their "teams", but i do think she acts like a child. i mean, don totally cheated on her and all that which was wrong. but now that's over and they're divorced. she really shouldn't hold onto the house she made with her ex-husband. she's got a new man now. and still no job. she should just take what she can get.
Fuck me.. I forgot to watch last night. I need to watch it tonight.
There it is...
I'm losing my edge...
First ep was awesome. Loving depressed/withdrawn Don brooding in the dark & asking for mild S&M from a hooker that looks like Joan.
I like how shitfaced Don is in the final scene
I thought the last half hour was fantastic. It kind of reminded me of like a super hero origin story, with Don coming into his own and commanding his destiny. I agree that his behavior towards Betty in the first few seasons was atrocious, but she doesn't make a very strong argument for herself. She always acted like a spoiled brat and it was galling that she would need a nanny who she treated kind of like shit when she never did much of anything herself. So with that being said, I reveled in Don's attitude with her when she and her new hubby showed up an hour late, and I was thrilled to see him throw those potential clients out of his office. It was very House-ian, not putting up with stupid people's stupidity. It's behavior I wish I emulated more often.
Don was kinda gross tonight. there was a loud "noooooooo!" emanating from my lips when he "pounced" on Alison. sure, he's always been a whore, but he just seemed so desperate in this ep. lol @ him referring to the deed as one of Alison's acts of "kindness".
Sally could do so much better than the creepy suitor she's currently entranced.
Oh god, Glen. That kid is so fucking creepy. But I'm happy they're giving Sally her own story lines outside of her parents for once. She's a great actress and it's crazy to see how much she's grown since last fall.
As far as the Alison/Don incident, all I could say when she pranced into his office the next morning and he dealt her the blow was "What the hell does she expect??" This is Don Draper we're talking about. Even she should know she was just a snack. Naive little girl. I'm interested to see where the Don/other advertising woman story line goes.
And it's still so weird to me to see Betsy and Henry walking around like a happy little family with the kids. I know they've had time to adjust but I sure haven't.
What an unnerving scene with Roger and the Lucky Strike guy. Totally unsettling. I hate seeing Roger vulnerable.
Also for anyone who watched Lost, I'm pretty sure the little boy Peggy is dating played Carl, Alex's boyfriend.
that glen kid is fucking creepy. i think it's hilarious that sally actually likes it. we're finally seeing the fruits of asshole, distant father parenting.
plus, why did the secretary leave if she actually liked don?! mixed signals.
roger and the lucky strike guy was pretty creepy.
and i thought that was carl too.
I've been meaning to get into Mad Men, but haven't yet. Although I've recorded the first two episodes of this season. Is that an ok place to jump into?
donít see the appeal of this show. Seen bits of a few episodes. Kinda soap opera-y.
*there are plans, but they have no dates*
Catching up with the first two episodes of the new season...
- I thought the hooker scene was cheap and pointless, though preferable to another of the show's irritating reliance on flashbacks (which I mistakenly feared was coming last night). Yes, Don has a fucked up view of women. No, the hooker slapping him didn't change any of that. Her outfit reminded me of Dean Wormer's wife when she shows up in Eric Stratton's room at Delta house, though that's probably more my fault than anyone in Mad Men's wardrobe department's.
- The whole Glen/Sally thing is giving me the creeps. I expected him to slowly rise beside her bed while she was sleeping. It's good for a kid to have a peer to talk to when their parents are splitting up. It's probably best if that peer isn't a sociopath.
- The Beatles reference was an interesting one. It was a minor acknowledgement from an ad man who would soon be in a business bending over backwards in an often misguided effort to sell to kids in their own language. Adding the 45's to a list of Xmas items during the 1964 holiday along with Peggy's attempts to get Freddie to consider younger actresses was probably a bit of foreshadowing.
That's all I've got for the moment.
