In Which I Review Mad Men (7x11)
--Another highlight moment, the couch scene between Pete and Peggy, recalling the last time they sat thusly on a couch: the day Peggy told Pete that he got her pregnant and she gave away the baby.
--"Enjoy the rest of your miserable life!" Okay then Lou!
--Even the West is now closed to Don Draper unless he runs from McCann/Erikson. The West has always been Don's safe haven, his paradise. But now it's a dream denied.
--Trudy Campbell has a fabulous wardrobe and I would like that white dress please.
--Joan isn't even acknowledged by Jim Hobart. She'll become nothing but a secretary to McCann/Erikson.
--"I don't know because you're not supposed to know or you can't go on with your life."
--"You are OK." I need more Drunk Roger and Drunk Don having contemplative moments.
--"I'm fine. I have work to do." OR: how to survive life if you're a character on Mad Men.
