mad men: 'the fog'


A third of the season is over already. I can't believe that! But I'm going to focus on all the episodes left in this season.

Season 3, Episode 5: The Fog
Betty and Don deal with Sally. Pete pursues a new angle in business. Betty has a strange dream.

Remember to track and come back.

gatz - I loved the scene with Sally when he was cooking: I thought you were going to be a boy. Not all surprises are bad.

I got a much stronger vibe this ep that there is something very wrong with Don's relationship with Bobby. Sally is the apple of Daddy's eye, but Bobby is, at best, forgotten. In the waiting room, Don eagerly talks about his daughter's birth - the other fellow has to ask about Don's second child. And the 'you throw the ball around?' Don looked incredibly uncomfortable replying.

And now this new baby is also a boy, and with Gene's name as well, which Don didn't seem down with. I don't predict a good relationship here, either. :-(


Do you think it's mainly to do with Don's poor relationship with his own father? Doesn't really know how to do it right/maybe afraid of getting it wrong, because he had such a crappy example?

Bobby's gonna be the one to watch out for. Sally's going to be all about the drugs and free love in a few years, but Bobby's going to be quietly making bombs in the basement. O_O


I was pretty excited to see Annie Dudek back. Love, love, love her. :-)


Oh, also! The nurse in the waiting room, isn't that the SN "Marty Sheinbaum" lady? With what looks to be a little bit of 'work' done, perhaps?

I'm going to withhold comment on Don's parenting. :-)

Flipcy FTW! That's Yeardley Smith, aka the voice of Lisa Simpson. I recognized her right away, but it was one of those moments that was far down my commenting priority list. ;-)

Heh. IMDb says her Ms. Smith's SN character was named Malory Moss. Sorkin does have his list of go-to names, doesn't he?
