    Yeah he was just on some other shit. But the fact that he did tell her and they ended on bad terms only means it will come back on him. Otherwise it just wouldn't have happened like that. But I also think once his Ex wife knew, he probably felt unburdened and when he was having those panic attacks maybe he just didn't feel like lying was the thing to do. Who knows? All I know is that if he gets alone with a woman he's pouring drinks, smashing, and smoking.

    Then Mad Men is the show for you
  • Matt-Matt- Posts: 21,585 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I never seen it until a few weeks ago. I binged and watched every episode in like 2 weeks. Amazing show. Some shit is repetitive and gets old, but it doesn't take anything away from it. Good storylines good characters just everything about it is great
  • ocelotocelot Posts: 9,693 ✭✭✭✭✭
    What made me a fan was the writing... And how things were said without anyone speaking... Like when Marilyn Monroe or JFK died and you saw how it affected people... Or when Ali beat Liston and how the world changed after that...

    Yea, Mad Men is all about what is not being said. Some people think that's "boring", but I think that's what makes it so great.
  • Matt-Matt- Posts: 21,585 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I hated Cambell at first, now he's probably one of my favorite characters
  • WhoisDonG???WhoisDonG??? Posts: 2,348 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Campbell is that dude but Roger be having me dying. Its a great show because u see the 60's without nothing being said. The 60's is a era that change us as a country socially but the writing makes the show.

    On another note Don got engage to old girl because she is the anti Betty plus she took care the kids and will hold him down. She know what Don is about far as womanizing. Remember she know what Don be on
  • Michael_MaliceMichael_Malice #YM Posts: 17,217 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Really hope they bring Sal back for a couple episodes.
  • WhoisDonG???WhoisDonG??? Posts: 2,348 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Sal probably all the way out there now.
  • ocelotocelot Posts: 9,693 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Cambells and Kens rivalry makes the show too... Peter stay hatin on Kosgrove
    I hate Betty Drapor... She's a bad mother and you can tell the 70s will eat Sally alive... Sally will be like Jenny from Forest Hump when its all said and done... C/S at Sal coming back n/h
