In Which I Review Mad Men (7x3)
Sometimes, the Beetles are better than philosophers. In this weeks episode of Mad Men, "Field Trip," it's judgement day for Don Draper as it is decided once and for all if he'll be returning to SC&P. Of course, such a decision is only brought about because Meghan gave Don the heave-ho and called him on his mountain of crap. Failed field trips wove themselves in and out of the episode this week--something that is seemingly so innocent and enjoyable turned ugly because people never change. Oh and Betty is back, in shinning form as the true ice queen, with her cigarette and petulant atittude. It's interesting how Betty and Don still manage to parallel each other, despite not being married or even having regular contact with one another. Like the teasing accusation Betty's friend hurls at her and like Don's cocktail of choice, both are just too old fashioned in this new age.
--Odd to hear characters in the 1960s talk about computers.
--Michael Ginsberg is insane. I actually think he might have some sort of disorder.
--Will Meghan take Don back? Probably. But I think she'll hold out for awhile.
--Go Dawn! She's running that agency. Love her.
--I really need Peggy and Don to have more interaction than this next week.
--I hope that was our Betty quota for the season.
