No matter what happens to me in my life, it will never be complete if I never have Christina Hendricks for at least just one moment in time.

I watched Season 1 right before season 2 started but then never caught up to season 2. I'm gonna have to try and catch up.I was in the mall yesterday and Banana Republic has a "Mad Men" collection of suits, which I though was pretty cool

I heard an interview with Jon Hamm on Bill Simmons' podcast a few weeks ago and he seemed like really cool and down to earth guy. He was talking about how he had been in LA for years with no breaks and had been let go from his agency and forced to wait tables part time before being cast as Draper. Pretty cool story i thought.

That's how I got into the show. Simmons and Dave Dameshek kept mentioning their man-love for Draper, when Jon Hamm came over to Kimmel's for Sunday football and they couldn't believe how they were smoking outside with Draper. So I checked out the show and what do you know, it's the best show I've ever seen.

I've always loved Kornheiser, except on Monday night football. He's done a podcast for Lebatard as well and he's an enthralling guy, really. Good catch on me biting TK's rhymes.

1) I'm a little disappointed the grandpa went donk down so fast. I found him and the way the family dealt with him to be entertaining, and I thought for sure he was gonna bad touch his grand daughter. I think there was a foreshadow of his daughter becoming a hippy, while she was watching the vietnam coverage.2) I love'd the Sal scene. I know it's not popular with everyone, but I think he could be one of the most interesting characters of the show if they flesh him out this season, way more interesting than campbell or some of the other office stiffs.3) Peggy stuff has been really good so far. She's a very odd duck.
