  1. This is the first weekend, since the premiere, where I am all out giddy, fidgety, looking-at-the-clock anticipating the new episode!

    Also, on Youtube, they have the 1.5 hour talk that Matthew Weiner gave at the 92nd St. YMCA, with Jessica Pare and January Jones. I thought it was great, and Matt actually gave a few new insights and as always, was so fascinating to listen to.

  2. I didn’t realize that was Danielle Pannabaker playing Daisy. I always liked her on the Disney channel. Also as James Woods’s daughter on the series “Shark.”

    I did recognize Craig Anton, the father on Disney’s “Phil of the Future,” as Gleason.

    (I have two teenage nieces, so I’ve had to keep up on Disney and Nickelodeon for years in order to be able to carry on any conversation with them. 🙂 )

  3. Many friends and one family member were Vega owners back in the day. Every one of them was a total lemon. I think the Ford counterpart was the equally flimsy but somewhat more reliable Mavrick. I later owned a ’76 Chevette that ran like a top.
