The build up in this season is going to pay off in an insane way here pretty soon. What are are we, halfway through? You know the last episode (maybe two) are going to revolve around the Kennedy assassination. Plus, the close-up of Roger's daughter's wedding invitations back in like episode one said her wedding is supposed be on November 23, the day after JFK. Whatever Matt Weiner is planning, it's going to be epic for this series. I can't wait to see how it all plays out with all the storylines this season. Betty/Don, Sally, Don/Sterling Cooper, Don/Roger, Peggy, Sal/his wife.. oh lordie, I can't wait.
You're right.. it's taking its time getting going, but the thing I love about this show is that you know some of what's looming ahead so it creates that viewer tension... it's such a great series. (Not to mention, I could stare at Jon Hamm without interruption for hours.)
