Everyone should season 5 before this starts. There is a lot of stuff I missed or forgot the first time around, and its such an amazing season of television. Can't wait to see how Don answered that question.

Pretty sure we know exactly how he answered it.

No. Draper's got the corner office, he's not some loser worker drone in a cubicle.
And isn't SCDP far from the #1 marketing agency on Madison? I guess I don't know where all the other companies are located but they aren't that big of a dog in the marketing scene yet, right? They're still growing?

Yeah, they're kindof a scrappy up and comer. The agency basically *is* Don, as he's known as a phenomenal talent who refuses to work for the big agencies.

So god damn happy this show is back so soon. This show exists in some kind of bubble for me, though. Me and the woman absolutely love it, but we've had a hell of a time trying to get anyone we know to give it a shot.

My wife could not give less of a fuck about this show, it bores her to tears. I absolutely love it. I just rewatched the last two episodes from S5 last night, I forgot how sad Lane's suicide was.

I'm glad we shouldn't have emo self-pity Don this season. I hated that. I need to see Don getting hammered and slaying pelt.
