    Christina Hendricks is like a real-life version of Jessica Rabbit..

    I read an interesting interview with Cara Buono, who plays Dr. Faye Miller. It turns out that "Faye Miller" is the pseudonym Marilyn Monroe used when she checked into mental facilities. Hmm.. anybody think she's also using a fake name?

    You can read the rest of the interview here.

    Tonight's episode was so good. Definitely the best of the season.

    I thought that Peggy and Don were just going to get drunk and have "I'm-feeling-vulnerable" sex, not make an actual connection.



    Awesome episode.

    I would have to agree. Also part of me hates Peggy for being the same age as me and in a more glamorous career, but I'm glad I don't have that... baggage.

    I tried to resist getting into this show, but dang if it isn't the best drama on TV. I was a little worried about this season so far, but this week's episode was great.

    Also, any episode without January Jones is a winner in my book. Man I can't stand her.

    Really awesome episode. It kind of felt a bit fanfictiony to me, but that's probably what the show needed. At least I don't hate Peggy as much anymore.

    SLG, just out of curiosity, why do you hate Peggy? I personally find her somewhat frustrating, but she does nail down the repressed/****ed-up Catholic girl element really well.

    I too thought it was an awesome episode. Wonder if Don's going to end up regarding Peggy as his confessor now that whats-her-name has finally passed away... (I can never remember her name!) But given the professional appearance they have to maintain, I doubt we'll see much more of Don & Peggy treating each other as a shoulder to cry on--which makes is fascinating since each one knows some serious secrets about the other, yet they're able to trust each other not to spill the truth.

    Most hilarious/WTF scene: Duck dropping trou and attempting to drop a hot one in what he thinks is Roger's office. Probably this season's "lawnmower" scene.[face_laugh]

    Looks like Draper's got his mojo back. I had a feeling something was going to happen with him and Dr. "Faye Miller", and in this episode he even seems to be inadvertently re-attracting Betty.

    I'm glad the women (Peggy moreso than Joan) are finally fighting back against the misogyny at SCDP.


    And Don's trying to give up alcohol? What, just because Peggy called him out on it? I'm not exactly sure what gave him an epiphany, especially considering that he had potential "wake up calls" (e.g., drunk driving accident) before.

    EDIT: And he's not jumping at the chance to sleep with the good doctor? WHAT HAPPENED TO OUR DON DRAPER?! :_|

    i was actually expecting an episode like this. don's downward spiral could only be the focus of the show for so long. at some point he had to go the other way for it to continue to be compelling. it's not like he really quit though, and i'd be surprised if we've seen don's last bender.

    He's clearly aware of his alcoholism now, though, and he at least wants to quit. He just can't quite muster the strength.

    Didn't understand the scene with Joan and Peggy in the elevator, but an overall good episode.

    Just when I think that the writer's can't top last week's episode, they did! Fantastic episode!

    I'm pretty sure Joan wanted to get retribution the "old fashioned" way. Scheme, use her sexuality, etc. like she's always had to do. Peggy on the other hand wanted to use her actual, Draper-given power and authority, like a "new" working woman. Joan's always had the illusion of power (sleeping with Roger, charming the other partners), and although she's capable and good at her job, she is just a glorified secretary. Peggy has a "man's job" and a career in front of her. Joan's becoming aware of all this and she doesn't like it.

    Plus the whole thing with her husband is stressing her out and probably caused her to be harsher with Peggy than she would have been otherwise.

    "i'd have my secretary do it, but she's dead."

    really satisfying episode in a lot of ways.

    I don't think this episode was on par with the past two, but I'll have to give it a second watch like I normally do. When it rains, it pours, right?

    What was the deal with them kissing after being robbed? I've been super lost then mad after be robbed, not horney. I didn't get that scene.

    I've heard so many great things about this show, and I just recently found out that my director was in an episode or two...so I guess I no longer have much of an excuse not to watch this show. Is it true that Jon Hamm is a bit of a method actor?

    I really enjoyed last night's episode, though it has definitely casted doubts over my theory about Don marrying Faye. I'll just have to respect the creative choices of Matt Weiner and his team. I will say that they were very ballsy to remove such a popular character from the show so suddenly.

    Um, where the hell has Pete Campbell been? He hasn't really done anything in the last three episodes. Looks like he will feature heavily in episode ten, but then again those preview clips are misleading to the point of meaninglessness.

    I haven't seen any other episodes from this season, but I liked last night's. I'm going to have to remember to tune in for the rest of the season...great show.

    hmmm. were you with a vulnerable christina hendricks? if not, it could help explain the discrepancy in your emotional response. also roger is a pretty cool customer if you hadn't noticed. the characters are very human but you can't expect them to behave just like you.
