Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 17, 2013
WhoHasTheRemote.com was excited to catch up with some of its favorite characters in the two-hour, sixth season premiere of Mad Men. Following a Rolling Stone review of the premiere, Who Has The Remote? announced its wish list for season six of Mad Men. According to the magazine, the episode takes place around Christmas of 1967, several months after the end of season five, and for those who haven’t seen the episode, there are spoilers to follow.
The opener shows Don and Megan Draper on vacation in Hawaii. This was a bit surprising, since the end of last season had viewers wondering how Don would answer the woman in the bar who asked, “Are you alone?” Apparently his answer was yes, because as the episode progresses, it’s clear that Don is spiraling into some sort of deep depression. The main character is loved for his complexity, wit, and creative genius, so seeing him happy would be nice, though it wouldn’t make for a very interesting story. Don isn’t the only character Who Has The Remote? is rooting for. Here’s our list of wishes for the rest of Mad Men’s new season, which can be viewed on TV anywhere, on Sundays at 9 p.m.
•Megan Draper gives Don a run for his money. Intuitive and hotheaded, she’ll probably learn of Don’s infidelity sooner rather than later and there will be fireworks. As much as we adore Don, Who Has The Remote? hopes Megan will fight back. Dealing with his depression and infidelity might provide a chance for her character to break out. On the other hand, she might be so wrapped up in her acting career that she remains blissfully unaware.
•Roger Sterling gets an eventual happy ending. The hits keep coming for Roger, and though he’s been known as a cocky philanderer, it’s not hard to feel sorry for him. In the first episode of the new season, Roger’s mother dies, as does another well-liked colleague. He’s grown closer to his ex-wife, who brings another man to her mother-in-law’s funeral. Roger seems a bit lost. Who Has The Remote? is torn here. Will he try to win his wife back, or will he attempt a renewed relationship with Joan, who is also newly divorced?
- Peggy continues to climb the ladder of success in a predominantly male industry. As creative director at another firm, Peggy Olson has come into her own. She’s in her element, a true protégé of Don Draper: blunt and commanding, instructing her coworkers in a seemingly scolding way while actually educating them. Don’s qualities seem somehow warmer and more genuine in Peggy, who brings a softer, calmer side to management.
•Pete Campbell gets what’s coming to him. Two hours apparently weren’t enough to catch up with all of the primary characters. The only thing viewers know about Pete so far is that he’s grown some pretty nice sideburns. The smarmy head of accounts leads something of a charmed life, avoiding catastrophe at every turn. Last season found him in the midst of yet another affair, this time with an acquaintance’s wife. His own wife remains oblivious and naïve. Who Has The Remote? would love to see Pete get the boot.
Who Has The Remote? enjoyed the season premiere of Mad Men and thinks it’s off to a great start. The site has some specific hopes for certain characters and storylines, expecting both rewarding and revengeful experiences for some of the show’s leads.
