It happened so quickly, and it was so dark, that it was hard to tell what Peggy Olsen was doing in that movie theater. I texted a friend. 

“Did Peggy just give a hand job to her boyfriend or a random man?”

“It’s hard to tell the way it was shot, but consensus says random,” my friend wrote back.

That was the answer I was hoping for. I was thrilled that “Mad Men” finally featured a meaningless sexual act involving one of their female characters. Maybe this scene would have been more pedestrian if it were Don or Pete or Roger. We’ve spent the last five seasons watching their messy sex lives. The guys of “Mad Men” have had so many sexual indiscretions that it’s hard to keep track. Keep reading »

Elisabeth Moss: People are constantly asking if [Don Draper and Peggy Olsen are] gonna sleep together. I always get annoyed, because their relationship is more than that. And to keep that going over five years without selling out and having something else happen — that to me is really interesting and rarely done well.

Jon Hamm: People want to put us in a “Sam and Diane” box, but it’s about their mutual appreciation for the work. That’s where the material strikes its resonant chord, when it’s ostensibly about one thing and then it becomes about so much more. That’s the fun thing about Don and Peggy, and that’s the deeper thing about “Mad Men.”

If you thought this was the season that Don and Peggy were finally going to get together on “Mad Men,” you were wrong (again). Which is how it should be. [NYmag.com Vulture]

“I think in the world of the show we see the office through Peggy’s eyes. She’s the new girl and we see her from her very first day… And we’ve watched through over 50 episodes of television her grow and become more confident and we’ve watched Don alternately shout at her and correct her and not be very nice to her but also be profoundly nice to her … I think Peggy is very important to Don. And I think you saw at the end of season three, when the firm blows up and they have to start all over again, he says ‘If you leave, I’ll spend the rest of my life trying to hire you back.’  And I think that sums up relationship that Don and Peggy have.”

– Jon Hamm talks about Don Draper’s relationship with his copywriter Peggy Olsen, seemingly shutting down any potential relationship between the two. “30 Rock” used a phrase on Thursday night that strikes me as the perfect descriptor for the relationship on “Men Men” between Peggy and Don: subordi-friendship. They’re friends, but one is subordinate to the other. (And sex is not a good idea.) [TV Fanatic]

Betty Draper Wasn’t In The Original “Mad Men” Pilot

January Jones opened up to W magazine and revealed that when it came to casting the role of secretary Peggy Olsen on “Mad Men,” she was thisclose to getting the part, but also that the role she eventually was cast for — Betty Draper, the icy blonde homemaker wife of anti-hero Don Draper — wasn’t even written into the pilot yet. Instead, series creator Matthew Weiner cast January Jones as Betty Draper and basically wrote the character around her.

Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. This is huge, people. Keep reading »

Quotable: Elisabeth Moss Is Peggy Olson, Hear Her Roar

“A lot of older fans come up to me and say, ‘I was Peggy’ or ‘my mother was Peggy’. It makes you incredibly grateful for what they put up with. That kind of movement, that bravery, had obviously existed long before the ’60s. It’s hard to imagine how they did it, in a way. I have such admiration for these incredible women. And I don’t think they ever decided, ‘I’m going to break through the glass ceiling.’ The glass ceiling wasn’t invented until later. Peggy just wants to be recognized for who she is. She doesn’t want to be recognized as ‘I am woman, hear me roar.’ She just has good ideas and thinks, ‘Why can’t you listen to my ideas too?’”
