I agree.

Yeah I want to know about Cooper, and secondly why he doesn't have an office at the new building (as of last season). There needs to be more shoe removal!

I suspect they'll kill off Cooper at some point. His screen time is extremely limited now - and the show hasn't killed off a regular in the office yet (no, I'm not counting the old secretary).

Yeah, perhaps him or Roger by the end of the series.

I don't remember him leaving either, especially since he was in this season in the office acting like he runs it.

Well he left right before the season finale of last season, had said goodbye to some people, with his stuff in hand. Wasn't in the final episode of that season. And now he's back.

Yep...he suddenly and seemingly for good called it a day and bailed out on the firm after Don's unilateral move to have his anti-tobacco letter published near the end of S4.

but even what was briefly scene and implied, falls into what's TV-14 acceptable is pretty amazing... and yes shocking.

Re: Mad Men -- "At the Codfish Ball" -- 4/29/12

Been a little busy this week, but I finally caught it tonight.

at Roger getting the BJ from Megan's Mom.

at Sally's reaction and her comment on the phone "Dirty"


Don't really have much else to add, but another consistently great episode.

Finally got to this too and it did not disappoint.

Lots of great moments already mentioned, but I would totally watch a spin-off about Roger and Sally Draper having adventures in the big city.

Re: Mad Men -- "At the Codfish Ball" -- 4/29/12

As many of you know I have been frequently commenting on Mad Men as I am watching it season to season for the first time. I pick a certain episode from each season that I think they hit a homerun with, and this episode was brilliant.

To be able to weave every character together in a different situation using the same theme is utterly brilliant. The ending with Don, Sally, Meghan and her parents sitting at the table all dealing with a different heartbreak in their life as the camera pans away is as good as TV gets.

I will say something that watching Mad Men is spoiling the other shows I watch, because you watch great TV like this and nothing else compares. Its like watching The Godfather and then trying to watch another movie after it and its a letdown.
