this is my taste in women

what a fucking great show this is.
I think I’m now three or four minutes in and I have some thoughts.
1. pretty sure that Don has yet to utter a word in the episode, despite several scenes’ screen time. instead he is just sitting around chain smoking in a well-cut (the pattern matching around the shoulders is mediocre though—I just checked) linen jacket while Megan (never know if it’s with an h) operates. this is a dream in so many ways. one of the best dates I’ve been on we ran into a stuffy guy I barely new on a date of his own at the bar, and the table arrangement there would have made it rude not to sit together. I was concerned I’d have to be an aggressive conversationalist instead of leaning back and having a couple martinis while chatting idly and mostly gawking at my date, as I’d expected to be able to do (it was like a 4th date). but my date was this quite brilliant, confident, and charming woman and she took over the table. it was delightful. maybe I wrote about it here. this thing Don is doing in these four minutes is relatable and good.
2. kind of disappointed that the show started out with a “flash forward” to what was presumably the climax of the episode. this structure (I’m sure there is a name for it) is played out in TV shows and it strikes me as pandering to viewers who don’t have the patience to watch a linear plot unfold.
3. I hope that Megan’s career success plays out in a more interesting way than Don being envious.
4. everything that Megan wears is to die for. nice beach cover-up, nice backless dress, nice lingerie.
