Mad Men S04E11

Wow - Don Draper's attempted recovery from his descent sure looks like a dead cat bounce!  And what a loser Roger is!  That is two partners in SCDP.  Lane is away, and Bert simply waxes philosophical.  Lane, the only hope in this descent into hell for the firm, is overseas.  (Probably with bigger problems.)  Only Pete seems halfway sensible.  And as for much of it I liked what Tom and Lorenzo said:
There's a reason the female characters are so strong and well written on this show. It's because the men are all total shits.
Peggy is soaring - and she is back in that great pleated skirt, as well as a nice sort of polka-dot top.
Weiner has a lot to achieve in the last two episodes this season to bring the show back to some good sense, I think. Much of this episode seemed silly to me.
And was Don's "Would you like a bite?" to Megan a reflection of her teeth for the last ten minutes or a reflection of the Dr.'s constant willingness to go out for a meal?
Key point: Don in dead cat bounce a couple of episodes ago. Heading down again.

The women are strong? Really? Dr. Faye sure ain't. She's pathetic. My take on this week here:

I think Tom and Lorenzo mean something else by 'strong' than 'strong'. I certainly expected more of Dr. Faye.
