It was a pretty big movie last year.
Not a kid. Just not a big fan of MASH and your post didn't help make any sense.

I can't believe it took me this long, but this ep I just realized I've been looking at Lindsay from Freaks and Geeks all this time.

Hate to have to explain a joke, but someone referenced Hawkeye from Mash, but the post you reference made a joke of it by referencing Hawkeye from Avengers.

The haircut doesn't help, but then neither do the weird lines on the side of her mouth that everyone on "The Real Housewives of Every City Ever" has.

I recognized her as a nurse (Samantha) from ER.

Re: Mad Men -- "Man With a Plan" -- 5/12/13

This season has been sort of weird to me. I was really looking forward to it after what I thought was a great fifth season and this one has been kind of blah so far.

This episode had it's moments such as the scenes with Pete and his mother, Don and Peggy's scene at the end with her telling him to move forward, Roger firing Burt. The scene with Don and Ted in the plane was sort of funny too.

I agree that Don really has turned into an even more unlikable character this season. Frankly it's not all that interesting to me anymore seeing him having to rely on affairs with other women to be happy. I thought that may change after last season and that it was possibly Betty that he was unhappy with but it's obvious the issue is deeper.

holy shit, I had no clue








I also agree with the Don being an asshole thing. He was acting kind of rapey in the episode.

Maybe this was John Hamm's audition for the role of Christian Grey.

She was well over high school age on Freaks and Geeks, time must have caught up with her, but the hair is definitely a factor. Secret World of Alex Mack (Ken's wife) looks pretty weird on this show too.

The one that threw me for a loop was Harry Hamlin--he's a long way from LA Law!

I don't think it should come as much of a surprise. His childhood was spent being constantly reminded he was the illegitimate "son of a whore", and his adolescent years were at least partially spent living in a brothel. His views on women are too ingrained and run too deep for him to ever settle down and be happy, especially as time marches by him.

Fuck that. He's a long way from Logan's dad on Veronica Mars!

Yeah and I did understand that. Maybe I'm remembering wrong but it overall seemed like he was happier with Megan in the fifth season. They had some rocky spots but I thought he was changing a bit.

Why is Betty still even a character on this show? They never show her.

Wait, did I just complain about that? Fuck!

Wait, the guy's name in 50 Shades of Grey is actually Grey? How trite.

At this point I'm forwarding almost all of the Don Centric scenes. So boring.
