I was one that based on the preview thought that it was Glen behind the phone call.
The season finale did seem to be a bit meh especially after last week. Lane's death would have been a more appropriate way to have ended the season. They should have ended this season at the moment the guys peered into Lane's office. While the viewers knew he was trying to off himself, they really could have played with the minds of viewers in the interim. They could have opened Season 6 with them finding that he died of a heart attack just prior to trying to hang himself or perhaps in yet another failed attempt, the rope had broke but in the fall he hit his head on the chair or the side table and that took him out.
I think that Peggy will end up back at Sterling Cooper Draper (Campbell? Harris?) after realizing that she perhaps bit off more than she could chew by jumping ship.
I did like the fact that Peter got punched twice. He needs to be beaten up more often, as he deserves it. The way he's going, he's going to hit rock bottom and either he too starts getting shock treatment or that infamous rifle gets one final shot from him.
I think that we may have started to see the beginning of the end of Don and Megan's marriage. The commercial could launch her career and she may have to decide between a career or Don, and unlike with Betty's, she's going to choose a career. Don will wallow in self-pity, but only in private. He'll be back to the Don Draper we know and love from Seasons 1-3.
I think I could have gone without seeing Roger Sterling naked for the rest of the series. For some reason I'm picturing him embracing some of the counterculture and the gray flannel three piece suits get replaced with Nehru jackets.....
Joan seems to enjoy her new position within the firm a bit too much. While she often ruled the office with an iron fist, that never seemed to be applied with the partners in the firm and she seems to be bossing them around in the same manner she bosses the secretaries and freelancers.
^^i agree. should have been another hour. i was suffering from the hangover from last weeks great episode. this finale seemed a bit tame indeed in comparison. if there are to be two more seasons from here on out we should expect the arc to be a bit cyclical. "are you alone?" my money's on "yes."
Naked Roger on LSD was a highlight of the episode, indeed. I love that man.
This was a terrible season finale. It should've ended when the five partners were silhouetted looking at the new space. It felt like it needed to be another hour and, barring that, they crammed in two seconds of each character to wind it down. I will say that the scene when Pete explained the deeper wound to Beth was -slightly- redemptive; I hate him a little less than before and like the parallels that are being drawn between him and Don. However, on the whole I was left feeling cheated (which I guess is how all of the characters felt this year, so maybe it was successful after all).
Also....Why didn't Charlize Theron run sideways? Seriously what the fuck?
The movie asked too many questions instead of answering them. For example: Why did they create humans? At what point did their xenomorphs turn on them? Did they realize that xenomorphs infect the host and wanted to kill the human race because of it?
Too many questions and that left a sour taste in my mouth. You don't pose so many questions and never answer ANY of them.
Not typically a big fan of this type of movie. Loved it.
Bruce Banners "Then what if the other guy says no?" Was pretty bad ass, but I think Ironman was more intellectually intimidating. Tho I am a little bias as I just found out I am most like Ironman on www.hero-me.com I think that is a compliment??!!
Great review, but I gotta dis-agree with you on the best line. The best line is when Captain America is giving out intricate detailed assignments to all the hero's then gets to Hulk and simply stats "Hulk Smash"
What can I say....Awesome flick. You know it's good when the talkers STFU during the scenes and the viewers collectively "Sigh" after every major sequence and collective chatter steeps for about 10 secs and then quiets down again for the next scene. Damn good flick.
Awesome display of raw and legit martial art skill. Silat reminds you that as much as you may love UFC, MMA has become totally mainstream. Enjoy before Hollywood turns it into a mess!

this is why cable companies should be forced to offer ala carte cable offerings.
let people at home decide if they want to watch/pay for a magic johnson or sean combs cable channel.
That was Takei's April Fool's joke.
I'm going based on your recommendation. It better be good.
"Crimes have never qualified as free speech."
Thumb through the "civil rights movement" entry in your World Book. Assuming that free speech is never criminal is assuming that the world and our laws are perfectly just. I don't think anybody would accept that.
my takeaway after attending the opening and talking to director/star max good at righteous room afterward - the world needs more jim sharps/silver buffs and max good needs a hobby.
i found it sad that max good spend 2 1/2 years obsessing over jim sharp because sharp buffed some of his graffiti.
Battle Royale did not do it first and it is not was popular as many believe. Although, I like the joke.
Not only is the film a good and faithful adaptation, it won't lose people who did not read the book. It can stand on its own. However, I did find the violence and manipulation slightly more spine chilling in the book.
"In France, The Hunger Games is called Battle Royale With Cheese."
that's a little unfair, the only thing they have in common are tremblingly pubescent schoolyard peers underneath the boot of a dictator-director fascist government being forced to kill each other in grisly, televised fashion for the glory of the state and the cowing of the populace. aside from that they're pretty different plots
The filmmakers talking to Jim Sharp, the Silver Buff, claim that he’s repressing “free speech”. Graffiti is vandalism — a crime. Crimes have never qualified as free speech. If that were the case, then the burglar breaking into your home or the mugger who sticks a gun in your face is each expressing speech.
