Did anyone else thing fat ugly normal Jennifer Aniston looks like Christina Applegate?
My brother had Oprah – her niece was graduating, too. She talked about how awkward it was to walk into the ladies room and everyone went silent when she peed.
I didn’t have much of a problem with this episode (besides being immediately disappointed upon seeing Fat Betty in the first minute). Matthew Weiner said on Fresh Air that the central issue in Don & Megan’s relationship had already been brought up and it wasn’t what everyone thought it was going to be – I think it’s her issues with his money. Repeatedly we see her cooking, caring for the family and earning her keep – she didn’t take on a diva air the way Jane did with Roger. Megan treats Sally like an equal – she gives respect and perspective. Her tiff with Julia was more about the silly lines than an insult to her work – as a novice actor, she’ll get over that behavior with some time and rejection.
How about Henry rewarding Betty with food? Just like a dog…
It was Roger’s fault – Jane made it clear she wanted a new apartment so it wouldn’t be tainted with all their history. So what does Roger do when he’s feeling threatened? Imposes himself in her new place to remind her who paid for it – her very first memory there is with him. It was the human equivalent of pissing on a fire hydrant. Yeah, he felt remorse, but it doesn’t change what he did.
Why was Don just waking up and Bobby still in pajamas when the women returned from shopping and Megan’s dad already had his publisher’s meeting and was rejected? Are everyone but the Draper men extraordinarily early risers? What did I miss? I’ll take my answer offline…
Holy crap – both a Sawyer AND a Free To Be You & Me reference, AND a stunning diatribe to boot? @badideajeans FTW – commentary of the week! Bravo!
Nothing happens at 1:10, it’s a trick to make you watch longer. At first I thought blue stripe was going to grow up to be the ugly shy twin, but now I think it might be red stripe….
Um, the kid is a result of a “fleeting affair”. 50 years of running around, one swimmer slipped past and he’s expected to love it? Oops…
Jeremy tied with Bonnie? I think Matt’s the most uninteresting (and unattractive) character on the show – they’re only keeping him around so Elena can wind up with him at the end, when Stefan selflessly lets her go so she can be with a human and make babies. Matt has no special powers, he’s the worst. Meredith blows – I am not getting a read on her at all; they introduced her, Abby, Esther, Finn and Kol all within two episodes. Too many characters too fast – someone’s got to die, and it should be Meredith… and Abby…
Cell phone usage is permitted while the plane is still at the gate. Phones have to be turned off so as not to interfere with aircraft instruments when the plane is moving and inflight. Donaghy says the plane was at the gate, not moving. Another point for the invisible laser shield.
Kyle Chandler’s impression of Goalpost Jesus
JJ Abrams and his dummy “Mystery Box”. He never knew what he was doing because he never opened the box – or, he opened the box and lied to everyone about it. Good in theory, bad in practice – see it on TED.com. Sorry, still hostile about stupid Jears…
Didn’t they already do grown up “Glee”? Wasn’t it called “Cop Rock”?
Dr. T and The Women. Please.

I went to the TAL Fathom Events simulcast in 2009 and was surprised at how blonde you are. In my mind’s eye, you’re Asian. Please pick an avatar so I don’t get confused again…
