Mad Men returned. There was poop on the stairway. Again.

Let's get to the BULLETS!

  • Joan has 70's hair in the 60's. But then I don't know much about women's hair. So...
  • Pete caught his father-in-law in a cat-house. Also Pete's father-in-law caught Pete in a cat-house.
  • Herb from Jaguar is back. And then he's not. This disturbs Pete. And Joan.
  • Herb's wife is named Peaches. Peaches & Herb.
  • The scene where Joan confronts was great. "We're all cheering you from the sidelines." Best scene of the season so far, and I've seen almost all of them.
  • Meagan's saucy Montrealittan mom is back in town. She hangs up on Roger a lot. Ah, the Francophiles and there phones.
  • No Rizzo and Ginsberg spin off yet. I guess the creators don't read the bullets.
  • Peggy is taking the female Don thing to the extreme. Stand by your man Peggy. He may not know electricity but he wants to live around different kinds of people.
  • Pretty convenient, the whole merger thing. I like it. I'm sure everyone will get along great.
  • Jaguar is out, but Chevy is in. So are they pitching for the Volt? Please no.
  • Pete's father-in-law makes Pete's life even worse if that's possible. I think it is Pete.
  • Don swoops in and steels Pete's thunder. Right after Pete's told what a great job he's done moving the firm public, Don goes in and gets rid of Jaguar, gets Chevy, and merges two firms.
  • Keep cheering from the sidelines Joan. Don is throwing a Hail Mary.
  • So is the agency now called Sterling, Cooper, Draper, Pryce, Cutler, Gleason & Chaough? You need a legal pad to print the business card.
  • This is a high point episode in part because Don's innards aren't on display and it's about the office, the deals, and that French woman talking pretty.
  • Apparently the Chevy model they're pitching is "The Vega." Don't see a lot of those around. That is until Sterling, Cooper, Draper, Pryce, Cutler, Gleason & Chaough get a hold of it.
  • No Betty. That's a great development.

Next week on Mad Men: Phones are hung up and notes are hand delivered.
