    I wish I had something more high-brow to add but I have LOVED Roger Sterling this season. His LSD trip sequecne was fantastic (and struck me as pretty accurate).  I like his new direction and renewed vigor he showed at Don’s awards banquet this past week.

    And damn, they write the best one-liners for him.Report

      Yeah that awards dinner was all kinds of shades of Tragedy.

      And to me it was good that he started to show that “go get’em” that made him a great account manager but then my next thought was “Oh… wow.. Roger.. her mom?”

    I loved the scene between Pete and Megan’s father.  Pete manages to deflate the old blowhard and express his self-loathing at the same time.Report
