    "Is it just me or is the lobby full of negroes?"

    The big two hour season premiere was tonight and it was awesome. I guess I should have known that this season wouldn't pick up immediately after the end of the last one, but they really let a bunch of seemingly important stuff happen in the between time.

    I was really turned off by the opening scene (OMG don't you feel bad for these black people???) but everything after that was gold. Pete fucking rules; he's probably my favorite character and I love his rivalry with Roger. And I'm glad they brought back the obnoxious art guy whose name I can't remember right now. And where the hell was Betty? I mean, I know she's not the strongest character but we don't see her at all in a 2 hour episode. And just the one scene with the kids. And was that a new Bobby?

    So is anyone else still interested in this show after the 17 month layoff?

    I thought it was good too. Don's new wife is a real pistol.

    Hope to get to it tonight as well. It's such a strange show in that it's amazingly well done, funny when it needs to be, serious when it needs to be...but really it's boring.

    Jessica Paré's rendition of "Zou Bisou Bisou" is available on iTunes. She's got that weird looking mouth but she's really fucking sexy.

    I saw her in some high school movie where her and the girl from Coyote Ugly were lesbians. It was pretty sexy. I remember her tits being huge, but maybe they were just big compared to the petite Coyote Ugly girl.

    She got naked in Hot Tub Time Machine too. Her tits are big and most definitely natural

    I really like this show. It is boring, but so well written and acted that I enjoy it. I thought the premiere was good and Pete fucking with Roger was hilarious.

    No Betty, very little of his kids = good show. The negro comment was fantastic. The layoff though was entirely to long and it took me a while to remember some things. I also didnt think the firm was doing that well before and now they mentioned a good amount of clients yet it still isnt doing well financially. Good start and it was good to see Roger who is probably my favorite character

    Yeah, Lane was being a real Nervous Nelly. Maybe Joan is going to work some accounting magic to get shit back in order.

    I also like how Peggy hates happy and content Don. I gotta believe something (tragic) is going to happen for him to get his edge back.

    That won't be until the series finale, right before the scene where Don puts a shotgun to his chin.

    5 partners and Cosgrove is probably taking more home than Pete right now, since the firm is still on shaky ground, so there is no profits to split between the partners, not to mention what they had to give Cosgrove just to get him to join them and bring his accounts with him - that was probably very expensive, would have likely been cheaper to give him a percent of the firm as opposed to a signing bonus, at least in the short term. The firm seems over staffed, I'm sure they need to a display a level of success to current and potential clients.

    Sterling & Cooper obviously live beyond their current income that the firm generates for them, but they're already wealthy (Sterling will end up broke unless he dies)

    Don dosen't have to pay any alimony to Betty but he does have child support and Megan has to be as almost as expensive as Sterling's wife, but I'm guessing he still has a lot of money stashed

    Brad is obviously struggling to live an upper middle class in West Chester or Long Island and we know he dosen't have anything and is reluctant to get anything from his in-laws

    Lane is definitely struggling and he controls the firm's money - I'm guessing he's going to get into a jam and with Joan on leave I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up embezzling what money the firm does have.

    It might be a "boring" show, but it does everything so remarkably well. There were a lot of moments that I genuinely laughed from.

    "So did I!"

    "You can do an ad on anything you want. Don't pick toilet paper, shitbird." I like Stan.

    I'm glad that Betty storyline is apparently only a one episode thing. When they first implied that it could be the Big C, I thought "Oof. Really? That's all the writers could come up with for Betty to do this season?" And her dream sequence was pretty lame. Really on the nose.

    It'll be interesting to see how the Jewiest Jew who ever Jewed fits in at SCDP. I bet he ends up fucking Peggy.

    I love the boring but good description. It's nor remotely on the same plane as breaking bad or weeds, but at the same time it is. I don't get it, but I love it. Roger is a pisser, and his 'it's always darkest before the dawn' line was even better than the lobby comment from last week.
