Season 5 started yesterday with a 2 hours premier. Thoughts?
Loved the episode but did anyone notice the show had a slightly lighter and funnier tone? There were freakin' JOKES. I mean, the show had funny moments before but it felt like they were going for humor in quite a few scenes. WEIRD.
But still, awesome show. I want to go to that party...
I didn't get that impression watching the episode. What I did think was that she comes from a far different background than the other characters. That part where she very comfortably laughed and chatted with the black gay guy at Don's party. Later, she admits to Peggy that everyone in the office is cynical, they don't smile, and they smirk - all a very upsetting culture shock for her. This all didn't give me any indication that she's up to something. But then the people on IMDB gave some interesting comments, and now I'm not so sure anymore.
I still remember that scene where Sally was running away from everybody at the office, falls, and Megan is the one who comforts her. That was probably the one warmest, kindest moment I've ever seen in the series. It really stood out to me. So much so that I watched it a few times, and wondered why such a minor character (Megan) was given the spotlight so prominently. The characters are so cold, guarded, and gloomy sometimes that it's a huge suprise to see any sort of warmth portrayed.
Joan is now a milf. She also had the best line in the episode. Something like "I once knew someone with your job, now she has it all." And that awkward moment when Roger picked up the baby and also when Peter walked in with Pam and the stroller. =D
Have you ever gotten that feeling while watching Mad Men...thinking that you know what's going to happen but then it doesn't. Why? Because the writing is simply too good. They don't go for the cliches...which is why I don't think that will happen. If anything, Don will just bang Betty in some sort of relapse and remembers how much she sucks...and I don't even think THAT will happen because this isn't that kind of show. It's subtle but UNPREDICTABLE AS HELL.
I mean...who saw Peggy being pregnant coming!? I thought she was just getting fat!
Mad Men just goes to tell the story of these people, even if it's ordinary, they turn it into interesting.
Or how about the two different historical massacres that have played into the storylines this season? The first murderer, who raped, tortured and killed eight student nurses was Richard Speck. The second (mentioned on last night's episode), who killed 16 people — including his wife and mother — was Charles Whitman. Richard Speck. Charles Whitman. Richard Whitman. Dick Whitman.

LOVED tonight's episode. It's all about subtle glances and knowing looks around rooms.
Campbell is a weaselly piece of shit. Don will have rivals in the industry in Peggy...and probably Ginsberg. That smile of his tonight when he knew Ginsberg's idea was the best...like "Oh, you bastard...I hate you but that shit is good."
