It's also incredibly funny in retrospect how everybody is suddenly extremely invested in a boxing match despite the sport never having been mentioned once in the show before.

Anybody remember Floyd/Mayweather? Nunes/Rousey? It was all people were talking about for like two weeks each time. Idk maybe cause I don't follow boxing but it seemed like everyone had an opinion all of a sudden.

it's also partly because Ali was such a successful self-promoter, which makes me think on top of everything else Don is also adopting a defensiveness because you're not supposed to tell everyone how great you are and have everyone care and be successful, you're supposed to pay Don shitloads of money so that he can tell everyone how great you are.

Cooper's "she was an astronaut" hit me so hard the first time I saw this episode and I can't articulate why.

The saddest that an episode of a tv show has made me feel before, just utterly crushing

I believed with all my heart that after the failed suicide attempt with the Jaguar, Lane hit a moment of clarity and was going to pull something, maybe even something monstrous, to basically force Don's hand and somehow secure his position at SCDP while burning his bridge with Don as a friend forever or something. Even when Scarlett said that his door was locked, I took it at face value when she said he hadn't arrived to work yet. It wasn't until Joan tried to open the door and it resisted that I grasped what was happening and it was loving devastating.

The scene where they break into the office and see his corpse is just... gently caress. Jesus Christ.

Incredible show, incredible episode. I am going to miss Lane so much.

That got me the same way on my first watch too, ugh.

ulvir posted:

these last two episodes are a real one-two kick in the gut.

have we gotten all the stuff about Dick's brother and how he died yet? idr when that gets fleshed out but it's pretty hosed up the way the suicides in Don's life both have a direct connection to money, and with Don's line about gratitude not mattering because "that's what the money's for!!", throwing money in Peggy's face, i dunno man, yikes on yikes on yikes. The alchoholic meltdown spiral that's coming up for Don makes a lotta sense, since he's not exactly going to therapy

I love this episode and do not have the slightest clue why it takes so much poo poo from people. I mean, I get it, but those people are wrong. Will save further comment until the next half.

not to open up pandora's box or anything here but isn't it kind of a spoiler that pete survives to s7e1? given the shock of lane's suicide and how much of a shitbag pete is despite having a wife and kid idk ??

Wait, Peggy is supposed to be Hillary? Peggy is definitely a Republican imo

I think "Peggy is supposed to be Hillary" is insane, but Hillary was literally a Goldwater republican lol

"They shot that Kennedy Boy" and Pete dismissing it as his mom's dementia is one of the funniest bits of black humor in the show.

It's a homage to the end of season 6 of Trailer Park Boys where the boys manage to not go to jail at the end and Mr Lahey starts to confront his alcoholism, which sets up the final season.

Speaking of, Jerusalem, any plans for a Trailer Park Boys watchthrough thread? Another one of the all time greats.
