Episode 21 - Say Goodbye to Dave and Steve

We're not going anywhere, it's just one of my classic clever titles.

We jump right into the action with this one, a shooting, some guy named Ricky.

This one features a couple of classic 70s tv stars, Pamela Hensley and Hector Elizondo.  Most of the 70s aesthetic in this one is not too obtrusive.  Like you think, 'hey that doesn't look that bad'.  Don't worry, we eventually get there...

James Garner was actually in the 5th RCT in Korea.

Not much in the news this week, but we do have a pretty great song.

Steve's Spotlight!

This is the first episode of the series that made me tear up a bit at the end.

Episode 20 - Steve and Dave and Claire Are All Names

Man that's my weakest title in 100 Mad Men podcast episodes and now 20 of these.

Who cares, it's LINDA EVANS!

The irony of the opening phone call was not lost on either of us.

Jim sure does have a lot of girlfriends, but, to his credit, he's not a love 'em and leave 'em sort.

This podcast is a Thatcher Free Zone.

\Linda Evans pulls off the 70s look better than most women, makes sense.

Hey, this one has Jackie Cooper!

The Jim and Dennis relationship is complicated as ever.

Episode 19 - Dave Counters Steve's Gambit

Hey, it's another one with a woman co star who will go on to something big (Mary Frann in this case, who later was on Newhart).

Also, you might recognize her apartment, as it was used in last week's episode.

Any episode with Angel is aces to me.

I got a real laugh out of Jim in the drawing class.

There's a porn theatre in this one.  Happily, one of the things the internet did was basically get rid of porn theatres, so we have that going for us.

Angel playing a role in a scam is always so funny.

Episode 42 - A Portrait of Steve and Dave

That was an easy title to come up with! Some great 70s character actors this week. We go deeper into the Beth and Jim relationship this week...
