    Re: Mad Men

    The realtor was not only lacking in ethics, she also would have decreased her commission. I was kind of amazed there wasn't more push back from the realtor on Peggy buying the property solo though.

    What is up with the meta jokes? Last week it was a call out to 30 Rock with the "Old Spanish" drink order and this week Don instructed that the guys escort Roger's acid dropping buddy played by William Mapother so he doesn't get "lost" on the way out. Last week's reference was a bit more distracting because the whole scene with the insurance pitch was just freakin' off the wall. I loved Stan's baked giggles though.

    Poor ole Ginsburg.

    See, I think Ginsberg is secretly gay, and Matt Weiner will use it to introduce the lead-up to the Stonewall uprising into the show. At this point, it's a little over a year before the riots, but the police brutality and corruption in that area is already in full force.

    At least, I hope this happens, because I think it would be a great angle.

    Re: Mad Men

    I could see Ginsburg as secretly gay. (And Sal needs to return for the Stonewall episode; since that would probably be next season, they can make it happen.) I do wish we'd get a bit more in the creative room because I want to know what's up with the older lady and just who that guy is that Ginsburg lives with. They're now treating him as Ginsburg's father, but originally didn't Ginsburg refer to him in another familial capacity? And what is up with that tub in the kitchen? SCDP should be paying him enough to not live in a tenement by now.

    I'm still kind of amused that it took six seasons for Bobby Draper to have actual lines of substance. And frankly, I do not think he was trying to destroy the house, but improve it. Removal of that butt ugly wallpaper that was improperly hung would be exactly the thing I'd do.

    That scene with the wallpaper was reminicent of Mommie Dearest, when the author got in so much trouble for ripping off a piece in her room! Excpet Betsy just banned tv for a week.
    It was nice to see Bobby and his dad together, but sad that Bobby is more worried about something happening to his stepfather! I hope it wakes up something in Don now that he is finally feeling something for his children.
    Those kids are lucky to have somone so caring for a stepmother. I think that is the real reason he married Megan. I think of that scene when they wer all in a restuarant and Bobby knocked Sally's drink over. Don and the kids were ready for a freak out by Megan and so shocked and releived when she didnt.

    As Ginsberg was having dinner with his blind date, it dawned on me that this guy reminds me of Woody Allen or at least the character that Woody plays a lot. If you have seen the neurotic, OCD, needy, nerdy character that Woody plays in most of his movies, you'll know what I am referring to. They're both Jewish and New Yorkers.

    I didn't takethe comment about being worried that something would happen to the step father as being an indication that he cared more about him than Don. I took that to mean that he recognized that his stepfather works in politics, and has a public life. In his child-mind, he sees his stepfather going around to speeches with politicians as being the same as Martin Luther King giving speeches, so he sees the two of them as the same. But I agree with you that Megan's ability to care for the kids is the reason that Don married her. She was someone in his eyes that could make his life easier, and who he could delegate the tasks that he didn't do well, or didn't like to do.

    You do have a point there about what Bobby is seeing as a dangerous job, plus Betty acted very worried about her husband--whose name escapes me--when he had to out to be with the Mayor.

    I wonder how nervous they are all going to get when just a month after MLK's death, Bobby Kennedy is assassinated.

    Re: Mad Men

    One thing that keeps freaking me out is that Philip and Elizabeth are not much younger than my parents! When they show scenes of them in the 60's, I can hardly believe they are old enough to be in that time, but then I recall how that is possible.
