Erm, discuss I guess!

I think we should strictly keep episodes as they air spoilered between the US showing on a Sunday night and the UK showing on Sky Atlantic on a Tuesday, but still be careful for a few days afterwards as well.

Best show on TV is a somewhat of an exaggeration. Though I still need to finish and possibly start season 4. I can't remember what episode I last watched.

Didn't realise until around a month ago that the pricks at Sky had nabbed this from the BBC :x Missed a lot of season 4 so I'll catch up on that again with Netflix before moving on to the new one.

This season has been terrific so far. Even Betty is tolerable.

Outstanding television. Haven't seen any of the new series yet because I'm waiting for the Blu-ray set and I'll hit it over a few weekends. My GF thinks it's great too which helps.

Did you get to "The Suitcase" yet? One of the best episodes of TV ever IMO.

Always wondered why there wasn't a thread for this wonderful show. I wanted to post some Mad Men news and searched 3 times for it.

Careful with spoilers from previous series gentlemen, mark them up appropriately if they're pretty major. like...

Season 3
That lawnmower moment was amazing :lol:

It's a fantastic series held in high regard much like The Wire and Sopranos so new people will begin watching all the time.

Just skimming Wikipedia the only episode of season 4 that sounds familiar is the first one but I'm sure I watched a few episodes after they'd started their own company. I'll probably just start with 4x02 when I have time.

Good episode this week.

Anyone else hoping Don wasn't hallucinating and Megan cleaned up his mess? That would be the show changing 180 Mad Men clearly needs. :shifty:

The forum search engine needs four characters to bring back a result. I remember Sarge started a thread during GRcade's early days but it sank like a stone and it was impossible to find later on. :lol:

What a bizarre Don side-story this week. Good episode, though.

Great episode, basically a big slap to the face of anyone who ever called the show sexist. The women rule that show!

Figured the Don stuff was a fever dream but still :shock: Also way to go Joan, all that was left was telling him it's not his kid

Very good episode.

It's amazing how well the show seamlessly transitions from drama to witty comedy for the briefest of moments.
