Mad Men Season 5 - Page 35

post #511 of 702
Speaking of ages, I have always been confused by Sterling's age. At one point, he mentioned that he served in WWII in the Pacific theater. He always seemed too old to have been in WWII, which only ended approximately 20 years before his mention (which was when they were going after Honda the previous season). The Roger Sterling wiki notes that he was born in 1912, which must have been mentioned somewhere on the show. Were they drafting 29/30 year old married men in WWII? Seems that Don would have been more likely to serve in WWII (born around 1925/6).

On a separate note, after Sunday's season finale, Mrs. Ace and I are going to go back and watch Season One on DVD, which I never saw and maybe Season Two, which I only saw bits and pieces of. Who knows how long it will be before Mad Men is back? Next spring? Longer? I'm already pissed that the series finale for Breaking Bad is now going to be split into 8 episodes in 2012 and 8 in 2013. It was supposed to be 16 in a row and then out.

My grandfather was 27 when he was drafted in WWII.

Of course Peggy will be back. Elizabeth Moss is billed second only to Jon Hamm. She will probably have an important story arc in the next season when working at the other agency.

I still can't believe Dick Whitman is older than Don Draper. Don Draper was older and an officer. Dick Whitman by his own account didn't finish high school and ran to join the army for the Korean War. Even if he was a senior, he shows up in Korea in 1950 as an 18 year old, he's still only in his 30s by 1967.

Was that his real birthday, or the original Donald Draper's 40th?


Multiple identities are so confusing....

Don't know. I'm guessing Don Draper's.

I think he mentions to Megan that it's not his real birthday.

Ace I remember Roger saying a few time "the War, my War, not your War" to Don. So I think he was in WW1. Could have been drafted when he was a teenager and that would still make sense with the show and him being in his mid 60s now...

According to several Mad Men Wikis (and I seemed to recall this as well) Sterling served during WW2 as a naval officer in the Pacific theater.

Yeah I think Sterling fought in WWII and Cooper in WWI.
