    Why is AMC so stupid? If you look at the schedule on their site, it will tell you when the show is going to air, but there is no indication of which episode will be airing when. Grrrrrrr.

    10pm - the episodes after are reruns.

    I figure Don sent the book to the beatnik girl he had been seeing earlier in season 1.

    I believe that season 2 takes place a few years after season 1 so it's conceivable that it's neither Midge or Rachel.

    Wait--it's years?! I totally didn't pick up on that. I thought season 1 ended at thanksgiving, season 2 picked up the following February. Refs to Valentine's Day, Peggy dropping weight, etc.

    season 1 finishes at end of 1960 (nov)

    season 2 is beg of 1962 (feb)

    Guess I'm retarded.

    Me, too, I was clueless. Pete Campbell's still in the same position? He hasn't sucked someone's cock for a promotion, or had his wife's daddy pull some strings in another agency, or both?

    They didn't make it obvious so go easy on yourself, ha ha. I read an interview with the show's creators which stated the gap in time between seasons.

    Does anyone else think Don looks much older this season than in the first? He has always had that stern look, but he just looks beat and old.

    Yeah, I didn't realize the time frame until after the show was over and they had a brief interview with the show's creator and he talked about how Season 2 begins 14-months after the end of Season 1. I'm not really sure why except that it does provide a lot of opportunity for flashbacks and rapid character development.

    "Believe me, I will ruin him. Do what I say." Walks back to table, wipes hand. Awesome.

    Awesome.


    Indeed. I loved that scene. I wanted him to wipe his hand on her dress though.

    Who was that comedian supposed to be? Joey Bishop?

    Watched all of Season 1 over the last week and the first episode of Season 2 last night.

    It's nice to see Peggy with a bit more balls, but she's got this power going to her head thing going on which doesn't really suit her. I spent most of the first season wishing she would harden up a bit and get back at that douchebag Campbell.

    Speaking of which, I love Campbell. There are so many guys like that around its great to see him get perpetually shafted. Though I'm a little surprised as some other poster said that he is still with the company considering his parents and wife's connections.

    And also glad to see that Sterling made a full recovery, he's definitely my favourite character. His line to Joan about riding those rolling hills was great.

    Don Draper would never sully a woman's dress.

    I still can't believe what I saw. I'll bet for the syndication version they will edit it so it just looks like he's pulling her hair.

    Can't wait to get home and watch episode 3 ...

    ... I've been picking them up off piratebay, is there any better place? Maybe one that updates you when a new episode is out?

    Speaking of which when are they shown every week?
