    I've seen that theory floating around the interwebs. I don't see that for some reason. I see her more turning into a Betty type, or even Jane.

    Did anybody else notice that Pete kind of has turned into Don without the demons? Used to live in the city, now he lives out in the burbs, Trudy is so into being a mom that she's not turning his crank anymore, and now Don has the place in the city and the sex kitten wife. Pete and Roger both want what Don has, but is that what Don wants? It's going to be a great season, because all the main characters are in flux. Can't wait until next week. Zooby zooby zoo.

    Re: Mad Men is back!

    There is something about Megan that I just don't like. Even when she first was on the show something bugged me about her.

    I watched the previous seasons of Mad Men on DVD and DVR which I thought made it much better. Sometimes it takes some time to grasp what made an episode good or even great. I thought Roger and Harry stole the show yesterday. I do think the performance of Zou Bisou Bisou is what is being talked about and also the akward house cleaning scene.

    It seems like Don has what he wants, an apartment in the city with a young girl. Althought it seemed that the only time Don has been at peace was when he was in California being Dick Whitman with the real Mrs. Draper. It probably was my favorite theme until they killed her off. I wonder if that will make an appearance again.

    Don thinks he knows what he wants...until he gets it and realizes it doesn't measure up. Actually, that applies to several of the main characters: Roger, Pete, Joan...

    And it probably applies to about 100% of the human race at some point in their lives, which is one of many things that make the show so great.

    That was great. Roger on the business end of a sharp jab, for a change.

    Episode two, or the Ten Reasons Roger Sterling is going to have Pete thrown out a window.

    Roger Sterling = Colonel Henry Blake
    Pete Campbell = An Infinitely more competent version of Dr. Frank Burns. But, just as conniving and petty.

    Never been a fan of dream sequence/hallucinations in which you're unclear whether or not its real. I've always thought that was pretty cheap, and last night was no exception.

    I think it was the fact that Don is sick, the Richard Speck murders are in the news, and Don is trying to get rid of his vices (affairs).

    How long before Lane and Don's new secretary have a time? Particularly with her sleeping in the office.

    I've got no problem with doing a dream sequence, as long as its clear it is a dream to the viewer. Otherwise, it's kind of a cheap way to shock the viewer. Just my opinion.

    Most people I've talked to said they thought it was a dream right away. Well, they fooled me, so I must be an idiot. I didn't know it was a dream until he slid the body under the bed, because no matter how sick he was, he's not gonna kill a chick and then go back to sleep.

    Great episode though. Glad Joan finally put Dr. Rapey McRaperson in his place.
