mad men: "out of town"

My show is back!

When last we left the good people of Sterling Cooper a lot of things happened. I'm not going to attempt to summarize. I don't have that kind of time. 

Season 3, Episode 1: Out of Town
Salvatore and Don take a business trip out of town. Pete Campbell and Ken Cosgrove worry about the changes at Sterling-Cooper and how the changes will impact them.

The times are a changing.... so grab your martini and come discuss the changes -both personal and professional - in the lives of Don, Betty, Joan, Peggy, Pete and the rest of the gang.

But ... this alpha male tiger doesn't change his stripes, apparently.

Nope. And to be fair, I wasn't thinking so much of a stripe-changing, as a not-this-time small victory.

I need to watch it again to see if I am really getting the sense that I think I am--that Don *is* having second thoughts about his behavior, for a variety of reasons, but it's like he can't stop himself - an addiction out of his control. Like he's less on the 'I want to, so I'm going to' side, and more 'I want to, but I shouldn't' gray middle.

The more he realizes he has to lose, the bigger impact it's going to make when he does, inevitably, lose it. It's gonna go big, is all I can think.

Orestes Arcuni plays the bellboy and he's straight. I told him, "Close your eyes and pretend I'm Christie Brinkley."

Ha! And he did well, I think. :-)

I have been absolutely repulsed by the comments I've seen on a few sites, though sadly not surprised. :-(

But I thought it was written, acted, and filmed exceptionally well.

D'oh! I ought not to subthread, for the benefit of others. :-)
