Mad Men

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'm watching it now. I was afraid the show would start off with a darker tone, but I'm happy to see it didn't.

"Open your blouse."
"You're a dirty old man" *opens blouse*

When will I have that power?!

Season 1-4, or you won't understand/appreciate what's going on.

A bunch of people on IMDB suspect Megan is playing Don. IMDb :: Boards :: "Mad Men" (2007) :: Wow Megan Sucks

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

Glad Mad Men is back.

Probably the best series after Breaking Bad & Boardwalk Empire.

Anyone else wondering where the hell January Jones is ?

^She hooked up with some older guy right around the tail end of her marriage with Don.

IRL, I think the writers made her role smaller. I remember reading about it last year. Maybe she wants to do other things?

Megan's Canadian, where everyone is friendly and there's fun. She's now in New York on Madison Ave. She's used to being a free spirit. They're just on the verge of the Austin Powers era, no?

Holy shit this past week's episode was great!

Also, this made me

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.

Fucking funniest thing ever...Lane and his ol' timey fighting stance kicking Pete Campbell's ass...and Roger saying what we're all thinking.

Mad Men and Game of Thrones made for a pretty unreal night of TV.

Pete Campbell became all the more douchey with this episode, and

Mad Men's episode tonight was amazing. Just when I thought this show couldn't get any better, they come up with this.

I hate Pete Campbell, but he's also one of my favorite characters on the show.

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."

Peggy did the right thing. It's what Don would've done. Joan is becoming more and more of a round character, please excuse the pun. Don breaks down again in 5 ... 4 ... 3 ... 2 ... 1 ...

Heavy episode tonight, wow. Even more added onto Don's conscience. Can't wait for the finale.

Ya, I expected that to happen, but didn't expect them to show it.

The finale is going to showcase the most emotional and alcohol infused breakdown in the history of TV.

I kept thinking Layne would go nuts and smash that glass into Don's face.

Glen is one creepy looking kid. I kept thinking he would do something indecent around Megan or Sally.
