@niks4u its called Don is a flaming pile of dung this season, if the main character reeks, how can you possibly expect a successful season. I think Lane is going to commit suicide, he has the perfect set-up to be the corpse this year, but not sure who else will die. Hasn't someone died every season, Don's brother the first season, didnt someone jump out of their hotel window in the season 2, Gene the third season, Anna and Miss Blakenship the fourth season.

This season Mad Men just hasn't clicked. Even less Megan didn't save it. What has happened to the show we loved for 4 years? I miss it.

i loved the episode. I lived through the ER as an adult and enjoyed the hare Krshna scenes because they took me back to a part of that era I dont think about much anymore, but which along with all of the Indian influences was very transformational.

not just here but on most of the boards, characters are criticized for immaturity.Im not sure I understand the point.

Joan is one of my favorite characters. Along with Roger, Peggy and Betty. Don and Megan have been been so-so this season for me. I hear that there are going to be some surprises this season. Too short season I should say.

That Krishna storyline jumped the shark. Lame. No point. I have been a huge Mad Men fan since the beginning, but this season disappoints. No consitent storyline except Megan, and they have runined Don. He's a shell this season. I hope they can bring it back next season.

Seriously, you started paragraph two with the beaten to death cliche 'Seriously'?

Megan is just immature. It's as simple as that. As for the Kinsey scenes, I think that was just Weiner saying, "here's what Kinsey's been up to." Then he gave us some closure on the character that we never got. I thought it was a great addition to the episode. Because of budget cuts, Weiner was forced to cut six characters after the first season. Kinsey was one of those characters and we never got closure. I hope he gives similar treatment to other fallen characters. I feel like Cosgrove might be cut from the show, and that would suck because he truly is a great addition to the office. And I meant office, not show.

Oh Dan, you're done with puberty and have entered adulthood, I am so proud you are finally able to bask in Joan's enchanting presence, ha.
I knew I was right about Megan, but I'm not sure if the writers are going the mental illness route with her character. Sometimes, I get this BPD vibe from Megan, which would explain her flip-a-switch moods and interests. And yes, Meganites, I know her reaction stemmed from her fear Don was cheating on her, but come on, that outburst wasn't the least bit "mature".
I didn't get the point of Harry and Paul's interaction, except to show how the Kirshnas invaded California. I was under the impression the American movement started in California, because don't Kirshnas hate the cold, so it was weird seeing them in New York. And I agree, Lane's bit was dreadfully boring; I wished he got caught.

Ehhhh. I think Don and Joan are good as buddies, but I didn't get the sexual tension there. I feel it more with Peggy than I do Joan. She's just too...obvious. Plus, Joan hooking up with Don would cause massive problems with Roger. I do think they have great chemistry as pals. This wasn't the strongest episode, but it definitely sets up some major drama. I can't stand Megan and couldn't from the get-go.
