mad men: "love among the ruins"

It's so nice to come to the end of the weekend and look forward to something on tv. I love this show.  This week's episode for those of us that don't have the iTunes season pass and didn't get the release last Monday:

Episode 2: Love Among the Ruins
Betty gets a visit from her father. Sterling Cooper grapples with a very specific client request. Roger makes arrangements for a wedding. Peggy becomes personally affected by a campaign.

Roger planning a wedding? The writers love us. Grab your martini and join in the discussion.

But Ken and Harry only see "hot woman acting sexy." Peggy notices that, too, so there she is singing -- better than Ann-Margret, by the way -- to her mirror.

In her dowdy bathrobe, no less. I keep being surprised at her little switches between dumpy Peggy the secretary in little school girl dresses, and the smooth seductress in the bar.

And she was sooo polished in the meeting about Patio. Smart comments and wonderful facial expressions, I thought.

I think we're supposed to be surprised, Elinor. She doesn't want to be dowdy and dumpy, spending her nights hanging wet laundry on a drying rack. She seems to want more of the trappings of a Sterling Cooper copywriter: Going out, meeting attractive people, going home with them.
