Live-Blogging Mad Men

The Lovely Daughter in response to Ann-Margret's singing in Bye Bye Birdie: Did people like that noise?

Pete has to bring up his illustrious great-great-grandfather.

LD: Why does Pete have Paul and Ken has everybody else?

Gregarious Son: Don can sell a woman in a white dress a ketchup popsicle.

Pregnant Betty drinking wine and smoking a cigarette.

GS in response to Peggy's imitation of Ann-Margret: Peggy doesn't like it so much now that the guys are treating her like one of them.

LD: I'd rather be treated like a guy than a secretary at that place.

GS on Ann-Margret: She's very good looking; I don't think anyone cares what she sounds like.

LD and GS during commercial break discussing gender and laundry.

GS: So Don has made his wife feel better and gotten his brother-in-law's family out of the house and he doesn't have to pay for it and his father-in-law's house will be untouched. Don is VICIOUS.

Oh please, tell me Peggy is not going to risk another pregnancy.

Betty's father is back in Prohibition.

Peggy's into one-night stands now?

Everyone in our living room, looking at Don looking at teacher: Uh-oh.

LD: Independent brunette women are his downfall.

GS: I don't know about his downfall.

None of us get the ending.

I have no idea what you are talking about. I think my TV doesn't get this show. Is it on HBO?

It's on AMC. Won a ton of awards for last year. An incredible drama and peek into life in the 60s; brilliant on the roles of women. But I have to say, it's off to an awfully slow start this year as they set the conflicts in place.

I've been wanting to see that show. Love the running commentary. :)

LOL - love the ketchup popsicle comment! Just caught up with that episode today on On Demand - love the show. I thought the brunette future conquest looked just a little too modern. I read an story about the executive producer of the show and his fierce attention to details of the period, very interesting.

I agree about A-M singing Bye Bye Birdie, I remember my parents hating that movie. She really is screechy.
