Goofs

Pete & Trudy's new apartment is referred to as being at 83rd Street and Park Avenue, yet the interior shots of the apartment show that it is clearly of post WW2 architecture. All of the residential buildings at that intersection are of pre-WW2 design and construction. (Pre-war apartments were generally considered to be much more desirable, especially along Park Avenue.)

Quotes

Don Draper: [talking about Pete Campbell] He's essential to the process. We're probably luckier to have him than you are.
Trudy Campbell: Oh I doubt that.
Don Draper: Well, maybe you're right.

'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.
