although don has continued his cheating ways in season six he has taken it one step further(worse) by cheating with his friends wife.i did not see that as somethng that would be in his character. is this his self destruction getting worse or are the writers losing the true essence of don draper? with pete and don both cheating in episode three it seems a little soap opera-ish which is not in keeping with the caliber of the show.

has no one noticed that betty was sexually abused as a child by her father and her comments about sandy to her husband were related to her own childhood abuse? I found her comments to be out of character for her and suggest she may be having some form of meltdown or breakdown..has anyone made this connection?i have not read anything related on the chats or blogs.

Homeland: The Complete First Season (2011)
Hailed as TV's best new drama by critics everywhere, the award-winning HOMELAND* delivers compelling
characters, thrilling twists and breathtaking suspense. Carrie Mathison (Golden Glober winner Claire
Danes), a brilliant but volatile CIA agent, suspects that a rescued American POW may not be what he
seems. Is Marine Sgt. Nicholas Brody_(Damian Lewis) a war hero...or an Al Qaeda sleeper agent plotting
a spectacular terrorist attack on U.S. soil? Following her instincts, Mathison will risk everything to
uncover the truth - her reputation, her career and even her sanity. Packed with multiple layers and
hidden clues, Season One offers something new every time you see it...watch carefully.
Justified: The Complete Second Season (2011)
In the aftermath of the deadly showdown that freed Harlan County from the Crowder family crime reign,
U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens must now take on even greater criminal forces looking to seize power -
including hellbent nemesis Boyd Crowder and the arrival of brutal, new adversary Mags Bennett (Emmy®
Winner Margo Martindale). Filled with treacherous twists at every turn... the second season of
"Justified" proves "spectacularly entertaining" (TV Guide) and has established itself as a show for the
You want an alien world created anew, with wonders and horrors lurking in its furrows? You go to Ridley
Scott, of course, spectacle maker and pictorialist par excellence. So Prometheus is bound to be eye
filling, with fully wrought planetary vistas and occasionally jaw-dropping visual coups. And did we use
the word alien back there? Yes, folks, Prometheus is a prequel, in a sideways sort of fashion, to
Scott's 1979 Alien original--or at least it's a long-distant stage setter for that story. This one
begins with a space mission that could reveal the extraterrestrial roots of Earth, although what's
buried out on the planet turns out to be much more complicated than expected. In the midst of
suspenseful episodes (and a few contrived plot turns), Prometheus reaches for Big Answers to Big
Questions, in a grand old sci-fi tradition. This lends the movie a hint of metaphysical energy, even if
Scott's reach extends well, well beyond his grasp. The hokier moments are carried off with brio by
Michael Fassbender (the robot on board), Charlize Theron, and Idris Elba, and then you've got Noomi
Rapace entering the badass hall of fame for a long, oh-no-they-didn't sequence involving radical
surgery, which might just induce the vapors in a few viewers. Even if Prometheus has its holes, the
sheer size of the thing is exciting to be around. Because this movie is gigantic.
Mad Men: Season Five (2012)
Mad Men" is back. Season Five of Mad Men, four-time Emmyr winner for Outstanding Drama Series and
winner of three consecutive Golden Globesr, plunges into the seductive and intriguing world of Sterling
Cooper Draper Pryce. Jon Hamm and the rest of the award-winning cast continue to mesmerize as they
adapt to changing times, social revolution, and a radical world. Lust is back. Adultery is back.
Deception is back.

Peggy's Intoduction to the Office
When Peggy joins the firm as a secretary, sexism is rampant, though it is clear from the start that she is not one of those women (like Joan) who has learned to prosper and even thrive in a sexist world. As Joan mentions, the best possible outcome for Peggy in a few years would be for her to be living in the country and not have to work at all -- in other words, to be well married. To that end, everyone keeps advising Peggy to show off her ankles, stop dressing like a schoolgirl. No one seems to be able to imagine that she might want a job like Don Draper's. It is almost strange that she and Joan get along so well -- remember Joan introducing her to that intimidating technology -- the typewriter? But Peggy really gushes to Joan about how helpful she has been -- but I detect that it IS gush, not totally sincere.
Many people seem to regard Don Draper as the ultimate bad guy, but when he defends Peggy against Pete Campbell's disrespectful attitude we see him in a very positive light. Speaking of which, I can't really see Peggy's acceptance of Pete as lover so abruptly when he shows up drunk at her door. I suppose this is a message about Peggy's determination to run her life as she chooses.

We've come along way, baby
Not sure where EasyEdit is located, but for this section, one of the scenes I found revealing was when the Draper kids are playing in the house. The daughter has a plastic dry cleaning bag over her head and when Betty asks her to, "come here." you think she is going to warn her about possible suffocation, she is more concerned with whether or not her dry cleaning is ruffled. Apparently those warnings came out much later.

Finding the drinking glasses with autumn leaves printed in gold leaf?
This will really test your knowledge! I have a set of these cocktail glasses that were my parents that have gold leafed autumn leaves on them. A friend came to my house and SWEARS that they have drank from them at the Drapers, she thinks in season one. Is this true? Can you tell me the season and episode if you remember them? I think she is wrong and we have a sizable bet on it and I figure YOU all are the experts in all things MM! Many thanks in advance
