  • I doubt Mad Men would dublicate another fist fight with Pete involved after the Lane smack down.
    Even if it is fun seeing Pete getting the crap kicked out of him.
    However I’m sure Pete will be storming off in a “huff” and probably having more than one tizzy over the merger and Ted et al.

  • Smash just got cancelled… too bad. Quite soapy but the singing was amazing.

    • Yes, singing amazing. Characters not so much.

  • Doesn’t Christopher Guest produce that new Family Tree show? That certainly makes me curious about it.
    .
    I doubt Ted and Pete would fight, even though I would love to see it. Ted seems too genial and smarmy to physically fight. He wouldn’t want to risk hurting his pretty face. In other words, he’s a lover, not a fighter.

    • I would strongly recommend picking back up Revenge over the summer. Season 2 started off rocky, but the writers recognized and fixed their problems and it has been soooooo good!!
