The soundtrack looks good. It's too bad they weren't able to use every song that was featured in the show. I'll still end up buying the soundtrack. I can't wait for season 2 to start.

I think the cast looks great in the Vanity Fair photo. Elisabeth Moss' hair looks so much better. It would have been nice if Maggie Siff was in the photo shoot too.

Who are everyone's favourite characters? Which characters can you identify with the most?

That's a difficult question as most of the characters are highly unlikable with no redeeming qualities therefore the only charcters I can empathise with are Peggy and Betty. This is no way ruins anything for me, I love the show Jon Hamm manages to make an extremely self centred and dishonest character charismatic so there you go.

Love this show so much. I was able to catch up with the rest of season one this past weekend and it's just magic. I hope they don't have a sophmore slump because that would be devastating.

To answer your question Z. Girl. My favorite character is definitely Betty, but I really like Joane (the main secretary girl) too. The one I can identify with the most? Hm... I don't know. Campbell? Not that I'm a vicious person or anything, but in that sometimes no matter how hard you try or what best intention you may have, things just don't work out. And so I can relate to that. And also he seems lonely sometimes, so that too, but that's it. Also Draper in that he's all self made.

Mad Men is one of the best shows on television. I am ecstatic for the second season to begin; there's so many unanswered questions from last season.

I can't really choose a favorite character, but I can definitely pick one of my least favorites - Joan. She is so snobby, especially to poor Peggy. For some reason I really like Pete, even though he's often portrayed in an unflattering light.

Oh, and Betty by far has the best wardrobe - I'd do just about anything to get my hands on some of her dresses!

I really want to get the season 1 DVD for this show because it looks SO good! I just saw the two male leads on The View...

I love how it incorporates all the glamour of the 60's...

The show is probably the best tv show right now. Caught the marathon Sunday and was hooked instantly. I actually DVRED the first couple of episodes when it first aired but never got the chance to watch them. Sunday can't come fast enough. One thing though, I just don't understand how Peggy didn't know?

I just watched the first 3 eps and I have to say so far I feel so bad for Betty! OMG that birthday party drama with the cake was so humiliating for her...to be a woman or any minority during that time just sucked! Ugh...

I hope she gets some power or something happens for her as the episodes progress...

I can't believe I forgot about this thread. Thank you seanutbutter, MyNameIs and Northern Star for answering my questions. I'm sorry I didn't reply to your responses sooner.

I can relate to the characters of Betty and Peggy the most but I enjoy watching each and every character on the show. I love that all the characters are flawed and three dimensional; it makes the show so much more interesting to watch and more 'real'.

I'm so excited for season 2!
