I was very young then, too. Toddling around then and seeing it from the eyes of adults now is always interesting, even if they're broken. I understand broken. :-)
Just stop trolling the comments.
Remember the troll who thinks Peter is a saint? Susan. Karl. They're back! Anyone calling out Alicia as a whore? Be suspicious.
I think we have to remember that time hasn't really moved that much since the end of Season 6. It was the end of November when we last saw them and it's mid January now. The changes they're going through are going to hurt like hell in that short of a time frame. Don lost the one thing that he thought he had in the bag and Peggy did, too. They're the main characters and it's their struggle. I think we'll see them pick themselves up and brush themselves off before the series ends, but with an understanding of who they are rather than any expectation that they will change. Don finally realized that on the plane. It's not in him to change and yet it's all around him. I wish I could understand our readers and predict what gets them going, but I can't. Unless I write something nasty about Beauty and the Beast -- that'll score a hundred comments in no time flat. Their loss on good discussion.
Nope. Not kidding. I think they're absolutely fascinating broken people. That they're still plugging along and entertaining me without changing is part of the fascination. Elsewhere I'd get bored. Not here. I'd hardly say they just change costumes, by the way. They're always affected in some way by what is going on around them.
Joel got distant and he refused to communicate. Not with his wife and not with counselors. He chose to move out of the house and shut down. Not impressive. Nothing you say in defense of him is going to work because he was not written true to character. Haddie has been MIA. It's entirely plausible that's because she has been investigating this new side to her life. Makes perfect sense, really. It doesn't appear from the previews she intends to bring it up but that Mad Max spots them kissing and makes an issue out of it. Again... all about the writing.
I didn't say CROSBY can do no wrong, I said the actor that plays him DAX SHEPARD can do no wrong. There's a difference. He's brilliant all the time; even if his character is being bad, his acting makes it impossible to hate Crosby.
This is only a good idea if it is an extension of the series. Instead it's like the Spiderman Amazing Spiderman crap (whatever). Yuck. Tooooo soon. Not happy. No. Sniff. Cry.
But Cam wouldn't have fired him for taking any other drug that had similar mind altering effects. She might have asked that he handle the evidence differently, or maybe not at all, but she wouldn't have fired him. The series was most definitely making a statement. Drinking alcohol holds no medical value, so connecting the two really doesn't work when discussing the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes. Someone taking Vicodin for pain with a prescription would also be treated differently than someone taking it without a prescription recreationally.
But Nate... did you cry?! Inquiring minds want to know. ;-)
