Mad Men 04x06: Waldorf Stories
Will this up his chances with Dr. Faye? I'm still hoping they hook up just to up his classiness again, but then again, I don't know if the good Doctor is into that kind of thing. She looked pretty disgusted with Don at the after party. And how will this affect his chances of showing he's a good dad to Betty? It looks like it's a bad week for Don, but hey, you guys won an Emmy!
Roger just wants a little acknowledgment
It seems like history has repeated itself with Don being the new-Roger, hiring this new guy under the influence of a lot of alcohol and some blacking out. Though we don't know how talented Jane's cousin is, I doubt he's comparable to THE Don Draper. Still, how funny that now that Don's at the top, it's him drunkenly committing mistakes that lead to the hiring of newbies. The look on Don's face in the elevator in the last scene though? Priceless. I doubt he knew he'd come THIS far.
Joan Keeps the Boys In Line
Though perhaps her little smooch with Don is a nice little incentive, I doubt Joan considers it such, especially after having slept with Roger already. All that mink and fur and gifts surely lined her pockets but Joan's such a different person now, it's hard to believe she was once a mistress of Mr. Sterling -- especially with the way she keeps him in line nowadays. I wonder if her lip-smacking with Don will register or resonate in the future episodes and if Roger's jealous streak will come out even more. All I can say is, Christina Hendricks was ROBBED OF HER EMMY but that's just me.
Look at Joan Just Keep Her Cool
Peggy's So Liberated, You Know
It's actually pretty fun to watch Peggy challenge Small!Peen with his work ethic and his irrational disregard of Don's wrath in the event they produce NOTHING for Vicks. The way she boldly removes all clothing and stares down Small!Peen's crotch and teasing him afterwards too, is so ballsy of her. And though Don still isn't giving her her due, I'm proud of how far Peggy's come.
Pete is Totally Asserting Himself
I'm pretty scared for Pete though. All this manning up he's been showing in the past few episodes only leads me to believe, he's totally going to get shot down soon. This is Pete Campbell y'all. This guy NEVER WINS at life. I'd hate to see him lose his baby or something bad at work happen now that Kenny's around just because he's been having a good few episodes. Let's cross our fingers it's not all bad coming up for Mr. Campbell.
Sherlock 01x03: The Great Game
But let's backtrack a few. So Moriarty's sending Sherlock all these games to be solved while Sherlock's brother also has his own mystery he wants our duo to work on. But of course, because Sherlock just won't give in to his brother, it's up to Watson to sort of get the ball rolling on the latter case. And I love how earnest Watson is in trying to help solve the case and also help Sherlock with his multi-mystery extravaganza.
I love that we have Lestrade once again on the cases. It's always fun to see him. And really, Moriarty looks like crazy and a half so it's no wonder he was able to fool Sherlock in the beginning. It seems like only a mad man can con another mad man (Sherlock, though this madness is really genius).
Despite the craziness and the confusing cases, the show still brought the pretty camera-shots wise and the use of location and their editing. I know it's an hour and a half show so we technically got six episodes, but I wouldn't mind seeing more of this next time around. So get to work Moffatt! I know you have Doctor Who too, but this one, you can't ignore either.
