Less Pete. I still hate the little bastard.
I'd say more Pete for exactly the same reason. Yes, he's a horrible person but he's a wonderfully entertaining character to watch.

I want at least one shot of Sally and Bobby dancing in front of the TV to Paul Revere and the Raiders in the show "Where the Action Is."
Like I did. :-)

George Lois is a legend, and the process he is talking about is exactly what the show is about, but it hasn’t happened yet. You can’t look at 1960 and say, ‘Why aren’t you doing a show about 1965?’ Also, Sterling Cooper is not cutting-edge; it’s mired in the past. The story to me is about the onset of a subversive ethnic point of view that has not yet poked through to Sterling Cooper. They’re dinosaurs.

And me! Plus, the Monkees debuted on TV in '66 ... lots and lots of Yardley commercials -- London was it!

Then there was the Four Seasons' Beachnut Gum commercial which with minor tinkering became a top ten hit that still gets airplay on oldies stations. They could do that.....

Let's see, what do I want?
I want to see more Pete and Trudy, and I want Peggy to rock the house at SCDP. I want Don to cheat on Megan, and I want him to suffer the consequences, whatever they may be. I've grown tired of watching him have affairs and never get caught.
I would like to see more Layne and Harry and have Paul and Sal come back, if only for Midge-sized cameos. I'm curious to see how those two are doing. I want Joan to be a good mother, and I want Roger to realize what a dipshit he was for knocking her up. I would like Jane to find out about the pregnancy, and get knocked off her high horse. Jane is a fun character, but she rubs me the wrong way, and let's face it- after being the other woman herself, she deserves to find out about Roger's transgression, especially since it was with Joan. Oh, that would be fun to watch.
I want to see Sally rebel and I want Bobby to grow a personality. I would like to see Betty flesh out as a character, and not be so one dimensional, but it would still be great if Henry leaves her ass. Then she and Don can learn the same lesson: you can't marry someone you hardly know and hope for happiness. You have to WORK for it.
Not an original wishlist, I know, but oh well.

Betty and Don share a scorching one night stand one very hot night, but they decide to leave it at that. For now, anyway.

I wish for Pete and Peggy to be buddies. Bonding over office politics and able to talk about their personal lives in a supportive manner. I'm not going to get this. I just want it.

"The process George Lois was talking about, was what he called the creative revolution. We had three women copywriters. We didn’t bed secretaries. I introduced Xerox. It was hard, hard work and no nonsense. ‘Mad Men’ is typical of ‘The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit,’ those phony S.O.B.’s. I was a Greek bigmouth, a Korean War veteran. I used my ethnicity to promote my talent. Before you knew it, most of the great creative talent was Italian, Greek and Jewish. We broke through the terrible WASP-ness of the business".
Now, technically Don is a WASP, but from Dogpatch, so not really. He does absorb the creative energy of the times, and wants to make his name as a cutting edge creative director. Wonder if his and Peggy's willingness to take risks and innovate will be enough to ride the wave, or will they need an infusion of new talent this season?
