swerb wrote:I thought the season was outstanding. I agree 100% with JB's take on Don.I think once the contract dispute ended and Weiner signed on for three final seasons, that he approached season five more as the first 12 of the last 36 episodes more than an individual season, not knowing how many more would be left. This was a total set up season for the final two.

FUDU wrote:Normally I agree with you on much of this show Rich but I don't see any romantic future between Peggy and Don. She is nowhere near the type of female he goes after. Now if he makes more significant changes and loses his superficial tastes then yeah I could see him settling for her in terms of the intellectual equal he has never had. Remember he loves blondes. Otherwise Peggy is meh compared to the women he's had and can have. Don's never built anything real on his own, he sees Peggy as his masterpiece in progress.

DrPoove wrote:I think we are set-up for a season of temptation for DD at the very least. I agree he has evolved into a "good guy" who has temptations/inner conflict and sometimes does bad things but we will see if that continues.
I can’t tell you where we’re going, but … We’ve seen how faithful he’s been — not just his conscience, when he strangles that old lover in his mind — but also in actuality. When he goes to the whorehouse, you see that he is not interested in other [women].

Other than your silence? Yes, things that don't feel like I've seen it before 1000 times.At least Mad Men is a good show stuck on repeat. Cleveland sports... blech.

Sea Foam Green wrote:1. The Pitches. Maybe it's just me, but I enjoyed the work side of the show quite a bit, including the pitches and interactions with the client. This season it just seems like there hasn't been as many. The Hawaii one, Heinz, and the half-assed Chevy one at the bar last night [which doesn't count]. How you gonna give them a major account without even letting me see the pitch?

I thought it was the bitchin' camero.Not too sure about that, b/c if this is the year 1968, MLK riots, then the Vega is still two years away. My assumption is this pitch is for a 1969 model, no? Which there were no real big splashes in 69.If not then you're probably right, although it's a strange choice to focus on in the show, since Don mentioned the Ford Mustang success and Vega's weren't competing with those, and considering the Vega was a disaster.
