One final Jon Hamm Birthday Week® post about Don Draper.
Last night I had dinner with a group of folks I went to high school with. Well, I came really late and didn’t eat, but whatever. We’ve been doing this a few times a year for the last few years, and mostly I don’t remember anyone so it’s like I’m hanging out with a few people I know, and a few new friends with whom I have some things in common and they look kind of familiar and they are my age.
(Jules, the former category includes Julie. YES now I know!)
I was talking with this one guy (in the latter category) about Mad Men. He says at his work they have an ongoing heated debate about the end of Season Two.
Basically, he is troubled by the fact that Don gets away with it all. Both in the office (he just disappeared for what seemed like at least weeks) and somehow, ethically. Where is the backlash?
Now, I have a lot of thoughts, but I prefer to open it up to the floor. What do the Basketcases think? Will it all come back to bite him in the ass? Should it? Or has he suffered enough?
