Great shot near the end.

Woah. Totally missed out everyone in the boardroom talking to Cosgrove. When I was watching, I was so focused on Don and the new guy...

Yeah her facial expression just doesn't looks right.

Finally caught up from Season one til now and each season is better than the last, although they haven't shown that much of Betty this season I want more Betty.

lol figured I would be, she has every right to be a bitch though and it's partly Don's fault she's like that.

Eh, I could do with more of her too. I'd rather see her character be developed than watch Don drinking himself to death for the sixth week in a row.

This show is so very good that it's ridiculous. I love how all those nights of binge drinking are starting to catch up with Don. The Life cereal pitch meeting was fantastic. If John Hamm gets turned down for an Emmy again next year, there is some serious issues with the Academy. Out of all the seasons, I feel this one has really shown just how human he is. Where in the past he could screw any girl he wanted, drink his clients to decisions, and still come home and be a father..he is now struggling on all levels. Socially, sexually, and professionally he is a complete mess. A trainwreck in the making.

The only thing I dislike about the new season is the goofy old receptionist. In "Mad Men reality" Don would have fired her the first day. Keeping her on the job makes the show feel a lot more fictional then it should.

I never understood what it meant when someone said "I hate your face" until I saw Peggy for the first time.

It's been covered a couple times, but it's Joan punishing Don for losing his last secretary.

yup. I think secretly Don is accepting this as well because he doesn't seem to have the self-control right now to NOT pursue his urges even if they're in the office place. He's losing himself as it is

Uhhhh....



Why is Pete in a military uniform?

It's scaring me because just the other night I was thinking about the possibility of Pete getting drafted and sent to Vietnam. The Vietnam ground war starts in early 1965, Joan's husband will probably ship out soon, I wonder if anyone else will get caught up in it?

It seems like he's just in makeup before getting costumed.

In several of the other shots the actors are already in costume as they're having make-up applied. I find it more likely that that's a costume rather than Vincent's personal casual wear.

And the sunglasses too? There's no way Pete Campbell would suddenly have like stubble and baggy clothes in the 1960s. And there's no way he'd get a shave in costume.

If other actors are going through make-up in costume, why wouldn't he? And if he's in Vietnam, stubble wouldn't be surprising.

BTW, those pictures are from an older episode. It's from the one that Slattery directed (you can see him in one of the pictures).

Unless he has another episode coming up.

Again, that's the senior airman rank. Even if this season he magically goes to Vietnam or even if he goes NEXT season, it is incredibly unlikely he'd already be at that rank in those respective years.

It's the first rank above Private First Class, it's not that unreasonable I guess. Maybe I'm just paranoid, but the show is about to hit the start of the ground war in Vietnam and the draft hasn't played too much of a role in the series yet. I wouldn't be shocked if someone from Sterling Cooper gets sent over there.

He also directed episode twelve, I believe. He mentioned it in an interview, he directed two episodes this season.

no..

Airman Basic = no insignia
Airman = one stripe and star
Airman First Class = two stripe and star
Senior Airman = three stripe and star

You can even tell by the insignia itself.
