Season 3 goes up tonight, so I'll finish it before jumping into season 4.Damn solid show.Next year I'm going to do the same catch up on Breaking Bad, since AMC starts running all seasons of their shows to catch up a couple of months before the season premiers.Although my best friend has laid out an argument that Breaking Bad is better than The Wire, so I already hate it because that is not possible.

In 2000, while working as a staff writer for Becker, Matthew Weiner wrote the first draft for the pilot of what would later be called Mad Men as a spec script. Television producer David Chase recruited Weiner to work as a writer on his HBO series The Sopranos after reading the pilot script in 2002. "It was lively, and it had something new to say," Chase said. "Here was someone [Weiner] who had written a story about advertising in the 1960s, and was looking at recent American history through that prism." Weiner set the pilot script aside for the next seven years – during which time neither HBO nor Showtime expressed interest in the project—until The Sopranos was completing its final season and cable network AMC happened to be in the market for new programming. "The network was looking for distinction in launching its first original series," according to AMC Networks president Ed Carroll "and we took a bet that quality would win out over formulaic mass appeal."

Roger Sterling stole that episode again with his one liners.. "Go out tonight and if you are lucky for Thanksgiving, you can stuff her" LMAO

Fuck, they probably would have just jumped on him w/ out him even asking.This Don smells bad and it's putting the ladies off. Beyond Allison, who obviously has had a long term thing fantasy involving Don, as you can clearly tell from her reactions, he's failing at every turn, and is just living out that fantasy for a few minutes before even she eventually smells new Don.Not sure when he'll pull out of it, but his failure w/ the women is not simply a "well, when is he going to bang em" thing and is really "wow, Don Draper just didn't bang them" thing.

Book it....and the new secretary is hilarious.

I predict it will come out that Granpappy Gene was touchin on her. Betty will deny and freak out only for it to come out that he did it to her and her Mother stoned her when she tried to bring it up and get help as a kid, and that's why she's such a cold, repressed, screwed up c***. Don will hit the roof and Betty will fall apart. Don may end up with the kids. BTW - Henry Francis is a joke. Betty hates him.Calling it all.
