    Mad Men Season Finale tonight

    Anyone excited for this? I am, despite this rather weak season. I haven't been a fan of how Don finds new ways to circle the drain of life, and falls through to a different rock bottom every week.

    That said, I'm interested to see if we get a peak inside Bob Benson's freezer to gander at all the severed heads.

    I though last season sucked. This one was worse. I'm glad the next will be the last.

    Was it last week Sally walked in on Don and the neighbor?

    That was intensely disturbing.

    That was two weeks ago. Last week Sally then demanded to be shipped off the boarding school. I kind of hope that the last episode ever flashes forward in time and we get to see how ****ed up Sally's life is.

    Yeah she has years of therapy ahead of her.

    And whats up with her old friend from the neighborhood who stopped by the boarding school. Kids got a creep factor x10.

    Yeah that was creepy. It was also a little uncomfortable to see Betty offer her a cigarette in the car ride home, and watch them both smoke in the same self-congratulatory way.

    Ha ha....er...whut?

    What the hell happened to this country.

    Do you Mary's need to get a room?

    Jeebus.






    God bless America,
    Land that I love,
    Stand beside her and guide her
    Thru the night with a light from above;

    From the mountains, to the prairies,
    To the oceans white with foam,
    God bless America,
    My home, sweet home.
    God bless America,
    My home, sweet home.

    I watched the first two seasons on Netflix a month ago... IDK seemed stuck in quicksand to me. Clearly it must be me because I know a lot of people love it but I just couldn't get into it.

    After boasting about this show to many of my friends last season, I am now embarrassed about it.

    This was far and away my favorite show on TV, but its gotten completely out of hand recently. There are maybe two or three episodes worth watching since Dons friend died out west.

    I agree. There was maybe one really solid episode this season. Maybe two last season.

    Firing Don was a good move.

    Like most great shows Season 1 & 2 are the best.

    Next season is the last so they wont drag it out too much.

    Who wants to bang Peggy?

    And how does Joan walk upright at this point?

    That whole plot line about Don's secret past dominated the first two seasons or so and then suddenly they just dropped it.

    The MLK Jr episode was on point, and the episode where Don goes out west was cool for their portrayal of the west coast counterculture of the late 60s.

    I'm not big on all these peripheral story lines and character developments. They need to get back to Don's story, the creative ad development at Sterling Cooper/whatever it is now, and incorporating all of the history and culture of the times into the show. IMO, that's where Mad Men was at its best.

    My favorite part of that episode in California was the way Roger was dressed -- double breasted blue blazer, white pants, and ascot. Upper crust WASP at a part with west coast hippies. So ridiculously Roger. This season was way too light on Roger-isms.
