    So with season 5 fast approaching, is there anything you are looking forward to?


    Favourite characters? Storylines?

    I'm expecting more Harry Crane action. They haven't given him anything to do since Season 2.

    I wasn't looking forward to a fat Betty.


    After two weeks, S5 is not very good.

    I would love to see Peggy and Don get together.

    Harry Crane is possibly the dumbest character on the show. On the outside, he appears to be cold and calculating. On the inside, however, this guy is all mush. He speaks too quickly and often puts his foot in his mouth. He's not worldly. But he has one virtue: he's got a good heart for people who really need his help.


    Other than that, there are other characters much more appealing and have the potential for better story lines.

    I think Peggy and Ginsberg would make a good couple. I'm waiting for Don and Megan's marriage to blow up, what with his bad temper and the age gap. I think Pete's life is going to get complicated with his indiscretions and unhappiness at home--he seems to be the new Don, living a double life. It'd be nice to see Roger back with Joan. Betty is still unhappy--it'd be nice to see her find some peace of mind.

    With the season almost over I can say Sally was easily my favorite character this season


    I just realized what bugs me about this show, it's like every season is written with the next season in mind as though they are perpetually building up to something with no real intentions of ever getting there

    I agree. Harry Crane scene are so boring. Cosgrove is the only character with his values in tact. (Cooper too till The Other Woman) I wish the show used him more.

    I look forward to see what happens to Peggy at CGC. At least she'll be reunited with Smitty.
