I'm not really sure what the Campbells were wearing at the party, but it was hilarious.

The show is slow as heck.

That's... really not a bad thing in TV drama.

I started watching the first season and didn't care that I hadn't finished it; I've already started watching this season. Not wise, I know, but I really like it.

Beet doesn't strike me as the kind of person that would find a show too slow, but to each his own I 'spose.

Beet, the first episode from Season 5 is actually online officially here:

http://www.amctv.com/shows/mad-men

I also enjoyed the wallet subplot that basically went nowhere. Of course, maybe it will go somewhere later in the season. Or not. It's never possible to know for sure with this show. Kind of like The Sopranos in that sense. I like it all though.

Also, Don's current wife is very hot in this episode.

Thanks! I saw it and it was great. I like how in the wallet subplot you think that drama is going to develop, and then...

Great episode last night. Definitely had somewhat of a David Lynch feel.

Last night's and last week's episodes were both fantastic. This show is miles ahead of basically everything else on television right now.

Yeah, this season has been dynamite so far. I especially loved the Campbell-centric episode. Roger's experience on acid from last night was great too.

The Campbell episode was the best episode of TV so far this year.

I have to agree. Granted, I watch hardly any television these days... but that's because almost everything on it is dreadful.

There's more bad TV on nowadays than ever before, but there's also more good TV than ever. You just have to look a little harder to find it.

Err, really?

Mad Men, Breaking Bad... what else? I don't get HBO.

Haha, Roger is the man! LOL.

Also, I have to say that Don's new wife is a hell of a lot more interesting than Betty as a character.

I think the Breaking Bad episodes that ends with that awesome shot of Walt in the basement laughing is still the best episode this year, but the Pete Campbell one is a very, very close second.

I still haven't watched the last season of Breaking Bad yet (although I've already had some of the stuff in it spoiled for me).

"Far Away Places" may have been one of my favorite episodes of the series. The most recent wasn't too bad either.

More Pete Campbell excellence on the last episode. Plus they actually played "Tomorrow Never Knows" by The Beatles. I wonder how much dough they had to shell out for that?

God damn, I love this show. This might be the best season yet.

End of the road for one regular character. Ah, how an awful pun can also be a spoiler of sorts.

I just finished season 2 on Netflix. I love the show. I'm trying to finish the next three before season 6 premieres. I guess I'll have to torrent season 5 since it isn't on Netflix.

The Jaguar not working was hilarious. Good episode, but not close to the best of the season (that would be "Signal 30"), which is a testament to how good this season has been. It's easily the best season so far.
