My last post may have dealt with January Jones' performances as Betty too harshly, In the early days of the show, especially the first season, I thought she was at least adequate as a still young daddy's girl who had been cast adrift by her unfeeling and unsupportive husband. Jones did a decent job of making the poor girl look like a victim. In this connection, it's hard to overstate what a monster Don Draper is. I have no idea whether he can do a better job with his new wife, Megan, than he did with Betty. I have a little more hope for Megan because she seems to be a lot more tough minded that Betty ever was.
Christina Hendricks Joan is a wonder. I love her in every scene and thought her scene with Peggy last season in which the girls called "Bulls**t!" on each other was a television classic.
