Mad Men "Time Zones" -- Peggy argues with Stan

AMCtv.com: Time Zones

This is what Peggy said to Stan in Mad Men episode 7.01, Time Zones:

Well, I’m tired of fighting for everything to be better. You’re all a bunch of hacks who are perfectly happy with shit. Nobody cares about anything. No one wants things to be better? I got it. I’ll just stand out here, all by myself.

This will be quite a TV mash-up. I watch remarkably few television shows. I’m so ADD, it’s hard for me to devote myself to really watching something. I keep the TV on a lot, and half fluff-watch HGTV and (here come da judgey) QVC and Buffy repeats and (forgive me because of how very bad […]

There have been a few discussions of gay people on Mad Men, and the discussions usually get pretty derogatory. “So Kurt is a pervert.”—Harry in Season Two, The Jet Set. “I knew queers existed, I just don’t want to work with them.”—Ken in Season Two (same episode). “You people.”—Don (talking to Sal) in Season Three, […]

[Note: In my Homeland recaps, I’ve been praising Lesli Linka Glatter, so I thought it would be fun to revisit the Mad Men episode where we first saw her talent. –Deborah] This is pure spoiler, just in case you were wondering. So, a courteous little “continued” link…

[Hey, Basketcases. Here’s another post that was published in the “dead zone”–before the site crash, after the cut-off of data we were able to recover. It’s not identical to how it was before, because it was still a draft as of cut-off, but it’s still ripe for discussion. Enjoy! — Deborah] In this “wish list” […]

Peggy Olson All Wrapped Up

Sep 9, 2014

[Here’s another reprint of a lost article. It garnered lively discussion last spring.] When Peggy Olson wants to dress up, she wraps herself up in a bow. Well, not “dress up” exactly. I think it’s specifically when she wants to please a man, or be sexy or beautiful. She doesn’t wear bows to church or […]
