So Season 5 of Mad Men is over which means I have a little bit of my life back where I'm not constantly obsessing, but there's still a lot to chew over. Especially with my boy, Campbell. Because I've read so many reviews that either ignored his story as concluded in the finale or dismissed it as confusing and meaningless. Which I do not get. Maybe the story could have been done better, given that any story with this character has to break through a wall of resistance with viewers. Far from breaking through that wall with those viewers, this story just made it thicker because unhappy!Pete is unlikeable Pete. This year Pete lost a lot of people who'd grown to tolerate him because he'd been faithful to his wife. But I think Pete's story would actually have been considered a lot more interesting if given to another character. But too bad, it was Pete! )
