Mad Men 04x03: The Good News
But it seems like he doesn't have to worry about losing Anna if he sleeps with hot!niece because Anna's dying. I love the struggle Don's going through. When Patty (hello evil!sisters -- I swear evil sisters really are named Patty... right jamypye) puts Don in his place telling him he's just the guy with the checkbook, it brings Don a few pegs down again. Wow. How low can Don go? And that moment on the couch with Anna, when he's about to tell her and he doesn't, I silently applaud him.
Yes, if I were there, I would be on Don's side and would want to tell Anna. He does have a point. She does have a right to know. But I suppose Anna's family's opinion bears more weight than the guy who stole Anna's husband's identity. So sorry Don, you got out-voted. Though in my fantasy, he would tell Anna and then he'd drop everything and take care of her for a bit and be with her till she died. I mean come on, that couldn't be their last time together right? It's so sad. Also, kudos Don. You actually did keep it in your pants
The only person who knows Don completely
and still loves him
Don Hooks Lane Pryce Up With A New Years Surprise
Look at Don hooking a brother up. This feels like such a Don gesture. And I'm just glad we got more Lane Pryce this time. I hope he and Don continue this friendship they have (even without the hookers) because Lane is a hilarious drunk and obviously when around Don, you'll be drinking. A lot.
Lane: You've got a fine piece of American Meat right here
Joanie Really Is The Head Bitch In Charge And I Love It
I feel like Joan's really trying hard to keep the appearance that her marriage is hunky dory when it's not, so I hope that things just go better for her. I feel for her so much. And when she cut herself? I could not look. I just couldn't. The way she looked at her husband when he was patching her up was really heartfelt and you could feel that she'd really grown to love this guy (who as we remember, raped her). I'm really really hopeful that their marriage doesn't fall into shambles. Like Peggy said, 'it's refreshing to see a marriage so strong' or something like that. I hope Peggy didn't speak too soon.
Why is she stuck with him?
Pretty Little Liars 01x10:
Meanwhile, Aria's trying to put her foot down with the whole Ezra-not-being-over-me business. How can you say no to pretty!Ezra really?! Oh that's right, she's thoroughly distracted by perfect!Noel. All this, I'm-moving-on business feels very false to me, so when she gave in and kissed her teacher in the car, I knew shit was going to hit the fan. Of course, it doesn't help that A saw everything. Oh well, we'll have to wait and see what happens with Ezra/Aria/Noel in January.
I'm scared though, because when Melissa finds out that Spencer ALSO hooked up with Ian, I don't know how much more forgiving Nanny!carrie can be. She might go crazy on Spencer, One Tree Hill style. Watch out Spencer. You may know how to plagiarize, but Nanny!Carrie's got more evil in her.
Also, this little hit and run Hanna's suffered feels like a soap plot where she'll have some sort of amnesia. And if it is the case, then I'll be laughing my ass off, because it's the oldest trick in the book. Still, now that Hanna knows (but can't/won't say), at least A will be a bit more wary. Or will this make her bolder? Knowing she can run folks down when they get in her way?
Over all, not a bad summer show, considering there's nothing else to watch. I hope it continues being succint and non-dragging with the storylines come January because that's a long wait and they better keep us interested until then.
