I was honestly pretty bored throughout the entire 2 hours.  It made me really look forward to Game of Thrones on Sunday!

Megan seems like a twit who can’t act worth crap.  That whole scene where she was cleaning up the apartment and she decides to prance around naked and tell Don he doesn’t deserve to even look at her? 

The whole thing left a really bad taste in my mouth.  I am hoping the season gets better.

Roger Sterling is my FAVORITE!

My husband works in advertising and I am constantly calling him “Don” when he is trying to talk his way into or out of things!

It pains me to say that she is French Canadian (I’m Canadian!).

We are still making fun of that Zou Be Zou dance she was doing.  I pretty much sat there open-mouth the entire time trying to figure out what the heck was wrong with her.

I can’t see her and Don lasting the whole season.  It makes zero sense and it seems like aside from sex, there is no substance to their relationship.  Or any of the relationships on the show for that matter!

@Evie19:  I sure as heck hope so!  How do you NOT know that Don Draper does not like surprises?  Peggy even warned her and she STILL went ahead with it.  Don was in such a bad place when he asked her to marry him, I’ll be really shocked if it lasts.

So many big expectations this season, I hope it lives up to them!

Pete and Trudy now = Don and Betty season 1 i think – even the house they’ve moved into looks so much like Don & Bettys old house. 

I don’t like Megan much, but maybe she’ll surprise us all during the season.  She doesn’t seem to care about the kids at all though – beyond what she did to catch Don’s attention in the first place. 

I liked seeing Joan a little vulnerable.

I don’t think we’re supposed to like Megan much. She’s really young and I think the whole relationship is contrived.

As for the rest of the characters…love. I have MAD love for this show.

@Evie19:  ew really? That’s really bizarre.

She’s a child and she acts super immaturely (is that a word?). That said, I’ll be glued to the TV every week to find out 🙂

I felt the 2 hour premier was a little long and drawn out!  It didn’t hold my interest as much as I expected.  In general, I LOOOVE this show and it’s great because it’s one of a couple that my husband and I both LOVE to watch together.

I liked to see more of Joan’s background and meet her mom.  I thought that was good insight into her character.

Roger is, like a PP said, more pathetic and more hysterical than ever.  His lines always make me laugh.

I was hoping to get more of a peek at the kids now that they’re getting older and of their life with Betty and her new husband whose name is escaping me at the moment but I’m sure we’ll see them soon.

I think clearly the physicaly connection between Don and Megan is there but I don’t really understand what else she offers him.  I’m interested to see how that plays out this season.  I think her working there is kind of silly.  I don’t think I’d be handling that as well as Peggy seems to be.  Peggy seems even more cynical but it was nice to see her still with her boyfriend.

And this time period is so exciting in terms of civil rights, I can’t wait to see more on that!

I think Megan is BAD NEWS!! I have never liked her.

It totally weirded me out when she made the comment about Joan’s baby to Peggy: “Just leave it on the church steps I guess…” Obviously Don has told her everything about himself (Dick) and about Peggy and whatever else. I think she is collecting up all that info and is going to do something manipulative with it.

Also Pete is kind of crazy and an asshole. Definitely comparisons to Don in season 1.
