Mad Men, Season 6, Episode 8: “The Crash”

Written by Jason Grote and Matthew Weiner

Directed by Michael Uppendahl

Airs Sundays at 10pm Et on AMC

There have been some excellent episodes of Mad Men this season. “The Flood,” “Man with a Plan,” and especially “For Immediate Release” have all been varying degrees of great, but “The Crash” is the first episode to leave me dumbstruck with awe the way so many season five episodes did. It’s an episode in which every scene seems precisely crafted to achieve an effect. What is that effect? Does it extend beyond inspiring bewilderment in the audience? If it doesn’t, and it’s as consistently engaging as this episode is, is that okay? As Andy Greenwald pointed out on Twitter last night, so much TV serves to satisfy our expectations that we should invite confusion and befuddlement when they arise rather than recoil from them. »
