I think the slapping in bed was one of the more obvious, hamfisted moments of the show and I'm a bit disappointed they went that route. Don, big powerful mogul, feels like he needs to be punished. Whatever.
I have to retract my comment on the plaid wallpaper because it is still there. I must have been confusing which house they were in with the grandmother's.
I disagree about the fight over the ham - I thought that was great and showed that Peggy is more willing to take risks than Pete (although she talked him into it). I thought the original idea was good, the execution was mildly funny, but they lost me when the women continued the fight. That was just a big setup to make sure it got revealed to Don in the most embarrassing way possible.
Enjoyed the premiere the way I usually enjoy this show. I pretty much dislike everyone on screen and yet it stays with you because the stories are compelling.
They weren't actually call girls, they were trying to figure out how to fit them in the budget without letting on to the ham company they had staged it. Pete says something like, "I can put them on the expense account if they're whores." But they used actresses.Originally Posted by Debb70;4005306;
