Is there a place to post a spoiler that might be fake? It is listed as a spoiler on another site (AMC Mad Men Blog) and fits some of the episodes aired already but no verification that is a true spoiler. I do not want to get in trouble. Would that be under speculation?

It have been taken down - true or not true - AMC was unhappy about it.

The spoiler thread is fine; just say that it may or may not be true.

We don't really know whether spoilers are true most of the time until they're no longer spoilers.

Suggestion. In honor of episode 4-9, could the thread title for Dr. Fay(e) Miller be changed to Dr. Faye Miller: She's the softest ?

It's been confirmed via the credits for Tomorrowland that Megan's last name is spelled Calvet, not Calvert. Could you correct that in the character thread title? Merci!

I'll be taking a break — for some work and some play — for the next three weeks, so you'll see TWoP Gadget and TWoP Tennison around these parts. Please be as nice to them as you are to me (and then some). Thanks.

OK, Mars, I'll rachet up the crankiness factor. The Tomorrowland episode thread in General Gabbery is becoming a catch-all for dissection of individual characters and how they have changed over the course of the season or series. Some of us try to steer those discussions to the individual character threads, but with limited success. :-)

I'll be away from the forums for a little more than a week — nothing compared to how long Mad Men has been gone — so TWoP Howard will be in charge here. Please be good to her.

Is there an appropriate place to comment (my opinions, of course) about the talent/acting abilities of the various actors on the show?

I would like to post a link to Mad Men characters cast with canine actors, but I'm stumped on what thread to use. I've looked everywhere and nothing looks like a fit.

Thanks!

The link I'm asking about has photo-shopped pictures of the main characters combined with the most appropriate dog breeds. It's very funny, so we have Don as a particular breed of dog and so on. Well actually here it is: The Dogs of Mad Men

Hmmm. It seems like it could be a whimsy thread, though I'm not sure what the name of it would be. Go ahead and just start a whimsy thread about whatever, and I'll modify it if it doesn't seem to work.

There's a forum for the Dogs of Mad Men, not under General Gabbery but under "Mad Men and Women" -- it's called "Mad Dogs, Polly and Chauncey."

Re episode threads: technically, the 2-hour season opener consisted of Episodes 5-1 and 5-2 (A Little Kiss, Part 1 and Part 2). The latest episode, Mystery Date, is therefore 5-4... if you want to be consistent with other sources, e.g.,

Just a heads up: your lovely mod, TWoP Mars, is taking a couple of weeks off, so I’ll be subbing for her for two weeks. Let me know if I can help with anything.

Since so much of the episode dialogue (yup, I'm guilty) and almost all of the Megan thread talks about the Drapers relationship, would it make sense to start a Don and Megan thread? I'm out of ideas for catchy titles at the moment.

How about

or
"Don and Megan: dirty on the white carpet"

Don and Megan: Orange Sherbet and Spilled Milkshakes.

(of course, the milkshakes have more to do with the kids, but it seems significant anyway)

I like it!

Do we need mod permission to start a thread? Is a thread like this necessary or wanted? I think it is, but I'm only one person.

No, you don’t—if, when TWoP Mars gets back, she doesn’t find it a good fit, she can take care of it then. Given that there’s already a Don and Betty thread, though, my guess is that she wouldn’t have any problems with it. So go ahead!
