    Re: Mad Men Season 5

    Interesting...

    A friend pointed this out to me. Don killed Andrea and stuffed her body under his bed. Sally, after taking Seconal from her Granny, fell asleep under the sofa. They both were "swept underneath the furniture. Is there a deeper meaning behind this?

    And did the Andrea character really exist, or was she a figment of Don's imagination? Or did she really exist and Megan hid the body?

    Another good episode. I was beginning to like Peter after season 4, but he's been getting smug again. That beat down he got was well deserved.

    Pete is a total scumbag. How crappy a husband are you if you have to get marriage advice from Don Draper? I loved seeing him get his comeuppance.

    Next time someone asks what I want to drink I'll have to remember "big and brown". Each week there's 2-3 laugh out loud funny one liners.

    LOL Pete looks up to Don. Despite all the battles they've had Pete admires him...for some strange reason.

    Interesting. The last 2 episodes dealt with serial killers Richard Speck and Charles Whitman. Richard Whitman (aka Dick Whitman) is Don's real name. Is Don going to kill someone this season? He did have that dream of killing a girlfriend from the past. Will he go back to his old Dick Whitman ways?

    Easily the best episode of the season. Fantastic stuff.

    It seems they're definitely setting up the idea of death in some form. I wouldn't be surprised if Don kills someone...it just better not be one of his children, I couldn't take that.

    Re: Mad Men Season 5

    Another good episode.

    After Roger & Jane took LSD I thought for sure someone was going to end up dead. But one thing I'm pretty sure of is Roger is heading into some bad times. He has almost zero worth to the agency. He divorced his first wife and she took half of his fortune. Now he's divorcing Jane, and she'll take half of the half he currently has. And with his love for boozing and whoring, I'd say he will be broke in about 2-3 years.

    Megan & Don....that's a ticking time bomb IMO.

    BTW, are there any Howard Johnson's still around?

    I was hoping for more out of the Don and Meagan situation. With the way they teased it with the phone call to Peggy then when we saw how it played out... Having her waiting at home seemed a bit of a buzzkill.

    Re: Mad Men Season 5

    Fianlly caught up last night from the past two weeks. The LSD episode may have been the best one of the entire series.

    Don is a changed man, he didnt do anything at the whorehouse, was going nuts when he thought he lost Megan.

    Pete is becoming the new Don but more of a doosh.

    Roger we all saw that coming from the way he was treating his wife in the past episodes.

    I don't know if he's changed. He still split as soon as he got in the fight with Megan, and only thought of himself when he took her to HJ.

    It's funny, Don's a crappy human, but we root for him.

    They both have the same background. They come from rich, well connected families. Roger inherited everything he has from his father- including the Lucky Strike account. And Pete's biggest clients came from his father-in-law.

    But Roger is an overgrown 10 year old. Pete's more mature, but he's smug and arrogant. I can see Pete becoming more like Don than Roger

    People root for him, yet they ................ all over Betty, who was victim of his serial philandering (and two truly crappy parents). I never quite understood that.

    I think if Don wasn't so devastatingly handsome, it wouldn't be that way. Although then I guess there wouldn't be a TV series either

    True but he did say to Pete something about not messing it up on the first go around in the back of the cab.

    Yes, if you see her in this seaon she always has a drink next to her in her office, smoking the ganja (like Don did), hooking up with a random person. She just cant close the deal like Don with the agencies customers.

    I think part of this comes from the fact that she's been mostly dealing with that obnoxious Heinz guy. In the last episode, the way she reemed him out... I could picture Don doing that. Except Don is a man and Peggy is a woman, and I definitely think that is the reason why the Heinz guy got so pissed. If it had been Don making those points, maybe he would have listened.

    I liked Peggy's rant at the Heinz guy because they could have easily fallen back on the "poor Peggy" and have her get emotional saying how hard she worked on the campaign. Instead, she stood her ground, like Don would have.

    Yeah this is the parallel. Peggy is like Don and Pete is like Roger. They are also their own characters but the those are the parallels. Just consider the unspoken and sometimes spoken intense personal bond Peggy and Don have.

    Wow, what an episode. Peggy gives some rando a handy in a movie theater and it's not even in the top 5 memorable things from the hour. Every story arc was great. The whole Roger part could've easily been lame and cliche' but it was f'n fantastic and at the end he couldn't be happier. A great moment at the end with all the young blood passing Don by. Could Bert Cooper calling him out lead to the return of Alpha Don? I hope so. Best episode of the season in my estimation.

    Screw you Megan. Orange sherbert is delicious.

    I have a bad feeling about Roger. I noticed that the song that was playing when they started tripping had the line "I wasn't meant for these times."
