Pete's really going off the rails. It's enjoyable to watch

i thought she was the weakest part of the episode. far too young to be married to that d-bag from the train. and i thought she looked a bit like Betty Boop.

I never watched the Gilmore Girls, the actress looked familiar, I thought of this person,




but, I guess she is older now.


The age thing, the wife could have been late 20s and the insurance guy mid 30s. So not that wrong. Her get-up, look?
my guess she is trying to appeal to him.

My complaint, is that they have done a pretty good job developing Pete, and now they are making him look a little idiotic and desperate. Yes, we did have that one episode where Trudie, is very controlling in a competent kind of way.
So one can deduce why is not happy at home. And we do know enough of his back story, to know that the silver spoon that everyone believes about him is not true. It seems he had no real connection with either parent, and no affection either.

At least with Don, I was left with the impression that Don had a connection with his father, even though he realized he was a real son of a bitch.

yeah, Pete wasn't terribly upset when his father died in that plane crash in Season 2.

i think he's self-aware enough to know that he's kind of a douchebag, and that he wants something more and something better, but he's deeply selfish and self-centered -- his two most immediate character sketch moments for me were when he was in the brothel and wanted the prostitute to be all "you're my king" and last night when she commented that his irises were like the pictures of the earth from space and he got obsessed with it.

lots of existential terror in Pete i think. they're all staring into something.

I haven't listened to the Beatles in a long while. It's good to be reminded how brilliant they were.

Apparently their getting to use that song was quite the big deal: How 'Mad Men' Landed The Beatles: All You Need Is Love (and $250,000) - NYTimes.com

To me, Pete has always been this way.

I really enjoyed this episode. It makes me want to get back into writing and directing somehow. Perhaps, I've been inspired by Megan?
