It's not started yet. They just had a preview episode on a few weeks back. Reality series about ad agencies (or teams of ad men or whatever) pitching.

Hope all these Twin Peaks homages (at least in terms of casting) lead to something...

Ken's dad & the girl Don strangled a few eps back

I was happy to see creepy Glen! Telling her to check out the Loving Spoonful! Answering the phone naked, with his winter coat on!

what was megan's original ambition? to act?

supreme sundae (reddening), Monday, 30 April 2012 03:19 (1 year ago) Permalink

never really been revealed

Grimy Little Pimp (Jimmy The Mod Awaits The Return Of His Beloved), Monday, 30 April 2012 03:23 (1 year ago) Permalink

yes "acting" but that's probably a metaphor or some shit

She moved to ny to act.

Great episode. Tableau at the end of the awards dinner was awesome.

Just realized that was Julia Ormond.

when megan first explains her idea for the heinz thing she really acts like peggy (in season 1)

seriously, THIS GUY (daria-g), Monday, 30 April 2012 04:24 (1 year ago) Permalink

I couldn't get a read on how Megan felt during Peggy's congratulations. It sort of felt like "uh, thanks."

Johnny Fever, Monday, 30 April 2012 04:26 (1 year ago) Permalink

I figured it was her feeling a little unsure how to take it, as though maybe she felt semi-guilty for accomplishing something via Don even if it really was all her. Maybe I'm just reading into her dad's speech though.

GoT SPOILER ALERT (Gukbe), Monday, 30 April 2012 04:33 (1 year ago) Permalink

peggy: "this is as good as this job gets!"

could be that megan is thinking, really? this is as good as it gets? get me the hell out of here!

i mean, maybe she doesn't actually want to work in advertising

seriously, THIS GUY (daria-g), Monday, 30 April 2012 04:49 (1 year ago) Permalink

Yeah, that's what I got out of it. "ok, we landed a pitch for beans. great. why does everybody even care."

new Bobby looks *younger* than previous Bobby. Eventually Bobby Draper will just be played by a muppet and voiced by Frank Oz.

raw feel vegan (silby), Monday, 30 April 2012 05:23 (1 year ago) Permalink

they've got to be setting roger up for a hard fall, economically speaking -- the first few episodes see him paying off everybody for favors, and tonight we hear he's still financially supporting his first family, and didn't jane say something last week about how the divorce was going to be difficult/contentious, money-wise?

supreme sundae (reddening), Monday, 30 April 2012 05:59 (1 year ago) Permalink

hard fall onto the pavement from the window u mean

i wonder if matthew weiner has someone on staff who combs through social media every week and says "now they're all saying it'll be roger who jumps out the window!" and matthew weiner laughs and gets out the show bible and changes it to, like, harry or something

INT: DON AND MEGAN'S APARTMENT

BOBBY runs towards the balcony and slips on his own toy, falling to his death. DON looks on, unconcerned.

There was an author on The Daily Show the other night named Robert Draper, who was probably roughly the age fictional "Bobby Draper" would've been now. I pretended it was him the whole interview.

Johnny Fever, Monday, 30 April 2012 06:25 (1 year ago) Permalink

That was an understatedly masterful episode. Roger and Sally were just delightful together.

Just realized that was Julia Ormond.

Hah, I thought it was the same actress who plays Lane's wife at first.

post-LSD Roger is a hoot. I was wondering if he was going to go back to Mona, seems like that was kind of a "thing" for that generation, marrying the same person multiple times (cf Liz Taylor etc)

It never occurred to me that Roger would be really good with kids, but of course he would.

he is one.

Roger's awesome. Also, Leland Palmer!

Ray Wise was great. Totally deflated Don. Seems to be becoming more and more apparent that Don's been coasting professionally for the last couple of years.

Roger Barfing (Shakey Mo Collier), Monday, 30 April 2012 16:37 (1 year ago) Permalink

Didn't Bert make a similar comment re: biting the hand that feeds...? can't remember

Roger Barfing (Shakey Mo Collier), Monday, 30 April 2012 16:42 (1 year ago) Permalink

Yeah, I thought at the time that Bert actually quit the company because of that ad.

GoT SPOILER ALERT (Gukbe), Monday, 30 April 2012 16:53 (1 year ago) Permalink

yeah but it's the WHY exactly Bert was pissed that I can't remember (something about Don putting his own name on it, rather than the firm's?)

Roger Barfing (Shakey Mo Collier), Monday, 30 April 2012 16:55 (1 year ago) Permalink

think it may have been the opposite, he put the firm's name on it and published it but didn't run it by anyone else?

dmr, Monday, 30 April 2012 17:07 (1 year ago) Permalink

i sort of want to attack Ray Wise and i have no idea why.

I've been looking for this clip from Robocop, where the bad guys are all blowing up cars with futuristic rocket guns and Ray is hanging out doing coke in the midst of all these explosions with the dad from That 70s Show. Sadly, it's not on youtube...
