Trivia

Early in the episode, it is suggested that a client go see the musical "Bye Bye Birdie". Later, Don and Roger grumble about how even in biblical times there were probably men complaining about kids. While not specifically mentioned, the musical features a song called "What's the Matter with Kids Today?" See more »

Goofs

Pete and Trudy's new apartment is at Park Ave. and 82nd. At the end, Pete looks out the apartment window on a view of Central Park that is impossible from that location. He's looking from the top of the Park, directly south, as though he's on 110th (or higher) between 5th Ave. and 8th Ave. (which encompass the width of the Park). With this impossible view, Pete takes in a nighttime skyline that includes the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building; this is the New York equivalent of "all windows in Paris look out on the Eiffel Tower."

'Can I have some of your hair?'
5 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

New Amsterdam, the 4th episode in the series, continues the amazing stride of the show. This is coming from someone who is currently watching the 4th season, and the changes some of the characters have gone through is amazing. Jon Hamm plays Don much lighter in this season than in the later ones, as does Betty. January Jones is a brilliant actress who's character transformation from this sweet, quiet Betty Draper persona to what will become a cold-hearted, mentally abused mother in Seasons 3 and especially 4 is really astounding, but it comes to prove how much people can change by how their lives are affected. In a way it is quite brilliant how I am looking back and catching up with this first season (since I started watching from season 2) but I am able to characterize things and appreciate them more.
