The most notable "new" thing that I noticed in last nights show was the dominance and confidence exuded by Peggy. She was talking to the men on an equal footing ,that is until Don laid down the law after her & Petes debacle with the supermarket "Ham fight" scam that went sour. Something they didn't touch upon was what is happening  with Joanie and Dr. Nobody the Jerk.

A dark horse prediction : Salvadore is brought back, hired into the new company to bolster the flagging Creative/Art department....

And a not so far fetched prediction: Betty's new Beau, the Politico Homewrecker, will throw some weight against Don using his political connections with Rockefeller, whom Don despises as much as Henry - who stole his wife. Henry might even find out about Don's false identity and use that against him. Something that dramatic might be the anchor for a season-ending cliffhanger. How about a dead Henry for a season ender predicament for Don?

Peggy was still talking with Don as colleagues after the Ham Fight debacle. It was a conversation with her boss about something that got out of her control, but it wasn't the old executive / secretary dynamic. Peggy even managed to convey her disapproval with some of his recent business decisions... about the firm's reputation being right where Don left it. 

Secretary Peggy or Jr. Copywriter Peggy would never have called Don on the way he handled the magazine interview, let alone point out that he'd let down every single person in that office. People who were only there because they believed he had the creative talent & drive to make them very successful.

Have pot of tea, iron/board, stack o'shirts, and a bottle of starch. All I'm missing is the team from Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, and then I can wrap up my weekend chores in style.

Started Netflixing it a few months ago, and am nearly through the second season. It's one of my favorites!

s04e03 and s04e04 were two of the better episodes in the past ten or so. 

They change writers and directors a lot, per episode.  I wouldn't be surprised to see that these two episodes were written and directed by the people responsible for previous episodes I really liked.

Its nice that they're steering away from the Betty Draper (January Jones) divorce drama.  I think that was dragging it down, but was probably necessary for series development.

Oh, yeah, forgot to add my usual [S04E04] linkie thingie, not that anyone really needs it.  I think I was going through an "I must quit 100% non-copyFREE code cold turkey, even ffmpeg / mplayer" phase that Sunday.  :lol:

I enjoy the office part of the show - the work culture, the 1960s atmosphere, the inside look at the movers and shakers on Madison Avenue, the cultural changes you know are coming...  Don's family has gotten boring a long time ago, and that California fling was the low point for me.  Also, where's Bertram Cooper?  I think they just photoshopped him sitting on a couch in the background without any lines, what's up with that?  I probably wouldn't even be watching this show without the Ayn Rand reference in the beginning.

Linking through a meta tracker search engine like www.torrentz.com would be much more effective than linking to one small ad infested tracker website.

MM s04e05 was fuckin kickass.  I think its 1965, and I like how its ramping up the undertones of the counterculture.  The coup with the Japanese from Honda was brilliant.

Hands down, they should get every award possible for set design and camera work.

Unrelated, Weeds is running again.  Good stuff.  Not nearly as good as Mad Men, but its a fun show.  You have to watch Weeds from the beginning if you want to dig it.  Weeds is totally impossible to begin watching mid-series.

Yeah, [S04E05] was one of the best episodes of any show ever!
