Episode 94 - Steve and Dave Have Some New Business

Getting close to the end.

It's the last we'll see of Diana, and while I don't hate the arc, it is worn.

I make what I think is an extremely clever analysis of the Calvet family.

Harry is horrible.

Megan is now a millionaire.

I think Don is sorry.

Is Marie leaving Emile for Roger?

Is Meredith the best thing ever?

Episode 93 - Soon Dave and Steve will Sever This Podcast

I mean look, it has to happen, there are only seven episodes left.

This one is really a season starter, so we know that it will be a bit weak, and it was.

Don has a blue shirt, he's practically Jerry Rubin at this point.

This one has a lot going on, historically speaking, but those things seem to happen around the characters.

What's with the moustaches?

Men are pigs.

It's Ferg!  Steve will hate Ferg.

Is Kenny telling us the story of Mad Men?  I like to think so. He always seems like a bit of an outsider, but enough on the inside that he knows the stories etc.

Episode 92 - Is This Steve and Dave's Waterloo?

I wonder, should that be Steve's and Dave's, or, does the possessive on 'Dave' include Steve?  I mean it seems like it should, it feels right etc.

You know what else feels right? THIS EPISODE.

This is a good one, it is one of my favourites.  It actually started me on a From the Earth to the Moon rewatch.

I'm probably just at the cusp of the age where kids loved astronauts.

Oh Bert, you right wing, reactionary maniac, you were a hell of a dancer/singer.

'That's one small step for man' was a flubbed line, but it still works.

Neil Armstrong was an honest to goodness hero.

Peggy's pitch is pitch perfect.

Harry gets screwed again, ha ha.

'It's a lot of money' and 'over Dresden, I wanted to live Ted!' are Jim's two best lines of the series.

Episode 91 - Dave and Steve Have a Strategy

As is often the case, the show seems to get better as seasons go on.

Burger Chef probably is run by morons.

Jim Hobart!

Bonnie is boring.

Pete is acting like a complete ass.

Lou is covering his ass, but, I hate Lou.

Have I mentioned how much I hate Lou?

The closing scene is probably the best shot thing in season 7A.

Episode 90 - Steve and Dave Run Away

This title pretty much wrote itself.

This one is, to me, odd.  I like it, but it feels odd somehow.  Sometimes like a bunch of vaguely related scenes.  I still like  it, and it has some great stuff, it just strikes me odd.

Megan is a bit of a twit here.

I hate Lou.

Stephanie shows up with Megan.  Oddly, my sister Stephanie might have been a Megan.

Lou is horrible.

Have I mentioned how much I dislike Lou?

Steve and I are not big on parties like that one at Megan's place.

Harry is sleazy.

I think the great Megan and Don experiment might be done.

BONUS EPISODE - Boyington's B*st*rds Episode 1

No this isn't about Mad Men, but you know what?  We don't care, what did you pay for this anyway? We have a new project and we thoug...
