    how dare a young girl explore her sexuality.

    characters such as the kid in bad santa had it far worse if you ask me.

    i guess i don't think masturbation is bad. the giving head thing was prolly shocking though since roger was being so nice to her earlier in the night. in some ways, it's like her father used to be. "you're great until i'm reasy to get laid"

    honestly, the neighbor boy not wearing pants while talking to her on the phone was the creepiest of all :-P

    Masturbation isn't bad. Having a 10-year-old girl do it on a respectable TV show is just kinda weird to me, that's all.

    we weren't even really "watching" anything. she made a face, an arm gesture, and kind of implied she was. i remember on roseanne the made references to dj jerking off and it didn't seem like that big a deal. why is it when it's a girl?

    and i'm not picking on you specifically, chris. i just find it annoying how masturbation for young girls is treated differently than it is for young boys.

    It's supposed to be about the fact that a totally normal act is being looked upon as if its some terrible thing, that's the entire point. it'd be different if they were somehow sexualizing her, but they're not. You're sounding like one of those MillionMoms people. Let them explore their characters anyway they want. Good on them for tackling uncomfortable issues.

    I think everything they have done with Sally has been a fairly honest, non-selacious (although that joke about spreading her legs and flying away was a bit heavy handed) look at what a young girl goes through. She's growing up FAST in an era where that was going to start beoming more and more prevalant. She's not quite sure what it all is or means to her yet, but it's there and now she's got to figure it out. Seeing these men in her life and their interactions with the women around them is gonna play a big role in her teen years. I was a fairly sheltered kid/tween for my time and sex and all the confusion, curiosity, and shock it can create still creeped in at a pretty early age. I think everyone has these kind of experinces and showing them in a tasteful way on a dramatic tv show isn't something I'd worry about.

    Isn't Sally 12 or 13 now?

    edit: I found this interesting character study of Sally http://entertainment.time.com/2012/0...-sally-draper/

    Apparently she turned 9 in the course of season 3/4. So maybe 10 by now, 11 tops? I think TallGuy deserves more bludgeoning for being such a shithead. Shit was sexist as all fuck.

    Catching up with this show, but not quite caught up enough to participate at this point (just finished season 3). But this is now one of my favorite television scenes in ages.

    Disappointed, though not all together surprised, that Don didn't "get" Revolver. Also, he may have liked it more if he had started with "Taxman."

    Hmmm. And here I thought I was not going to feel for Megan, but when her scene came up to tell Peggy, Stan and Ginsberg and she began to tear up... well, I'll be damned if I didn't end up tearing up for her, too. Though, when Peggy barked at Stan and Ginsberg that Megan was talking to them I LOLed pretty hard.

    I guess if I liked Pete I might have felt sorry for him, but he is such a cad that I could only laugh at his attempts to woo himself a mistress. At the end I couldn't decide whether Pete or Beth was in the lead on the road to losing their mind.

    Chuckled over the Allan Funt/Candid Camera reference from Roger. Loved Peggy telling Megan what's what in the Ladies Room, and later standing up to Don at the Cool Whip Kitchen.

    Anyone else remember being a kid and opening up the Cool Whip tub in the refrigerator to scoop out a fingerful, or spoonful if you thought you had time, and hoping your mom didn't catch you?

    I think somebody major is going to die before the end of the season. So far, all signs point to Pete. He's dissatisfied with his marriage and has started emulating Don & Roger (first the whorehouse a few episodes ago, then this week's dalliance with Beth Dawes), but is finding difficulty in attracting who he wants whereas the others had seemingly no problem. Lane kicked his ass. He looked absolutely pathetic in the elevator at the end of the episode in which he got pummelled, and if I recall correctly, that was the very same episode in which Don scolded him for his infidelity at the whorehouse and where he trotted out his rifle to impress Don & Cosgrove. In this week's episode, in the conversation with the life insurance salesman at the beginning of the episode, he made a seemingly throwaway remark about his insurance policy covering suicide after 2 years. Combine that with his remark about the pictures of Earth from space making him feel insignificant and lamenting that women get to dictate how relationships go, and things seem pretty bleak.

    BUT considering how intelligent this show is, perhaps Pete is just a red herring and the one who'll commit suicide is going to be Roger. His productivity has waned -- he's shared a number of emasculations this season himself, most notably when Pete took that major account from him and made a big show of it in front of the entire office. There was also a part in this last episode where Pete was despondent and leaving the hotel after Beth didn't accept his invitation, then we cut to Roger entering Don's office, where he pours himself a drink and, in conversation about Megan leaving the agency to pursue her dream, noting that he didn't get to follow his dreams, instead being told by his father what he was to do with himself.

    The symbolism of the empty elevator shaft when Don went to follow Megan downstairs was obviously a bad omen of things to come, and the death of one of the partners would certainly fit the bill.

    I predicted at the beginning of the season that Roger Sterling would croak, but now I'm beginning to think that no one will die, especially because they are foreshadowing death. Matt Weiner is from the David Chase/Sopranos school of audience fake outs.

    I agree about the foreshadowing of death of a lead character. However, Ida Blankenship's demise came out of nowhere. Granted, she was not a lead character, but this makes me wary that it could be anyone, really.

    Is Pete going to end up nemesis of all the SCDP partners (already pissed off Roger and Layne)? The previews for next week's episode indicate he gets into a spat with Don about "leaving at 5:30".

    Also. The A.V. Club write ups of the episodes this season are fucking fantastic. The same guy does the write ups for Community, which can be a little obnoxious because he's so thorough in his analysis, and while Community is more fascinating than the average sitcom, I don't think it quite merits such in depth coverage. Mad Men, on the other hand, offers much more to unpack, and dude really unleashes some striking commentary.
