we are young and stupid and raised by wolves
(this is not real life. these are not pictures of me. I am 25 years old and a woman and passionate about politics and fanfiction and, as far as you are concerned, I only exist online.)
Peggy coming home from her job, at which she gets negative points to Gryffindor for trying so damn hard (too damn hard), to an empty apartment, which she had moved to because of her boyfriend who broke up with her last year and which she hates and only stayed at because of him, devoid of any new boyfriend or even a friend or a cat or any company but complaining tenants, and just suddenly sinking down onto her floor and sobbing at how Not What She Wanted her life is
I mean Peggy Olson is as universal as it gets on this show. If you have to relate to a middle class white girl why not Peggy Olson why even bother with Lena Dunham.
I’m just waiting for the day that Peggy Olson wakes up, looks into her wardrobe, and realizes, “You know, I’ve worn enough goddamn plaids in my life” and throws them all out the window
only then will she finally realize her full potential and take over Madison Avenue
"Time Zones" could well be one of those "Mad Men" episodes that drives people to complain that nothing happens, but I actually think that the viewers who regularly lobbed that complaint at this drama are gone by now.
We’re down to the core fans now, those who accept that what “happens” on this show has a particular flavor, mood and style. Those “happenings” can consist of a significant look, a weighted silence or a crushing realization. Things often “happen” when the camera is focused on the back of a character’s head. This is a show that loves ambiguities, digressions and oblique angles. Not many shows could pull that off, but “Mad Men” has the kind of cast that makes watching people think and react a real pleasure most of the time.
