'Mad Men': 'Fees And Commissions' - And Beginnings And Endings

June 4th, 2012 8:57pm EDT
'Mad Men'
With ‘Fees and Commissions,’ ‘Mad Men’ did what it does best: Telling a melancholy – no, tragic – story quite matter-of-factly. It was shocking even though we all probably saw a lot of it coming. It was both sympathetic and heartless, and it showed how television can juxtapose images and storylines to masterful effect.

This episode is about beginnings and endings. The young and the not-so-young. It features characters rejuvenated with confidence and others completely drained of it. And at the center of the story, fittingly and sadly, is Lane Pryce.

In the beginning, it starts off quite al...

'Mad Men' Recap: 'The Other Woman,' Joan's Sacrifice And Peggy's Bombshell

May 28th, 2012 6:03pm EDT
Mad Men
Who do you think is the identity of ‘The Other Woman’? Is it Joan, who offers herself to another man for enough money to change her life? Is it Peggy, who is in some way Don’s emotional mistress? Is it Pete’s love affair with Manhattan? Or is it Jaguar, that thing of beauty that can at last be truly owned?

Joan and Jaguar’s stories are intertwined. Don and his staff (excluding Peggy, who is in charge of all other accounts) are struggling to come up with a memorable and sellable tagline. It’s decided that the luxury car should be viewed as a mistress of sorts, but should never be mentioned ...

'Mad Men' Recap: 'Dark Shadows' And Desperation All Around

In ‘Dark Shadows,’ Betty grows jealous and irritable while trying to watch her weight, Pete fantasizes about a virtual stranger amid his failures, and Don does something almost as underhanded as Betty. You know the end of the season is approaching when characters get evermore desperate.

Let’s start with Betty. She’s faithfully attending Weight Watchers meetings and seems slimmer since the last time we saw her. It’s clearly a strain on her: She catches herself spraying whipped cream into her mouth straight out of the fridge and results to telling Sally one of Don’s secrets out of jealousy ...

'Mad Men' Recap: 'Tomorrowland'

I’ve come to expect a lot from ‘Mad Men’ finales. As I’ve said before, ‘Mad Men’ is a show in which not a lot happens – but everything usually bubbles up at the end of the season, and the finales tend to hit it out of the park. Just think back on the Emmy-winning Season 3 finale, “Shut the Door. Have a Seat.” that set up the formation of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. It left the viewer captivated and dazed to have to wait several months to see where the action picked up.

Well, ‘Tomorrowland’ – the Season 4 finale – doesn’t live up to the hype. It may be the most disappointed I’ve ever...

'Mad Men' Recap: Blowing Smoke

“They can smell it on us” – desperation, that is. The senior officers of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce know the bind they’re in – everyone in town knows they’ve lost 50% of their business, and no one wants to give them a job. The Heinz rep Faye hooked Don up with tells him, “I bet I could get a date with your mother right now” in response to Don’s surprisingly pathetic pleas. Ouch.

Speaking of pathetic, let’s get this out of the way: Don’s Ghost of Christmas Past materializes in the form of Midge, his mistress way back in Season One. (If by “mistress” you don’t have it narrowed down, pi...
