In Which I Review Mad Men (7x10)
--I didn't mention it in the proper post, but of course, who is the one person who can see the future and is excited by it? Peggy Olson. She wants more than advertising. She wants to create something of lasting value. Oh Pegs. You are the anti-Don Draper. It's lovely to watch. I know I say it every week, but you're gonna make it Peggy.
--Every single line Sally uttered was my line of the night, but to pick a few: "This conversation is a little late. And so am I." "All I want to do is eat dinner..." "Anyone pays attention to either of you – and they always do – you just … ooze everywhere.”
--Betty is positive that Glenn will make it and live through Vietnam, so naturally he'll die.
--Don flirting with the teenagers was a whole new level of creepy.
--Nobody has time for Meredith's nonsense. It's hilarious.
--No ex-girlfriend this week, but there were still "three women" in Don's life--Sally, Peggy and the real estate lady. And none of the three liked him nor had time for his nihilistic mountain-of-crap.
--3 episodes to go. Will Don live through the end?
