Storyline

Peggy is given the opportunity to write copy for a new weight loss device that everyone knows is useless. She finds an interesting use for it, however. Afraid of losing the Lucky Strike cigarette account, Bert Cooper gets Roger Sterling to come in for a one-hour meeting but he has another attack. Don Draper becomes a partner and takes over for his friend Roger, but some of the ad men are sharpening their resumes nonetheless. Pete Campbell wants a promotion but Draper doesn't seem too interested. Pete sneaks into Don's office and takes home a parcel sent by Adam addressed to Don that the mail room boy comes to deliver.

Goofs

Carl Winter, Peggy's date at La Trombetta, says, "My sister's a secretary for Bulova in Flushing." Bulova has never had any offices or factories in Flushing, NY. The original headquarters, from 1953 to 1982, was in Jackson Heights, Queens, at 72-20 Astoria Blvd. It was a distinctive Art Deco structure at the interchange between the Grand Central Parkway and the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. The company moved its headquarters to Woodside, Queens, in 1982. See more »

Strong outing
14 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Indian Summer was yet another strong episode in the first season. This is one of the few episodes where I remember pretty much the whole main cast given the same amount of screen time, and it holds the ensemble cast even higher.

To everyone's dismay, Roger has another heart attack, which Don is then asked to be taken over for Lucky Strike. We also have Betty Draper in a different sense, and being sexually frustrated, which all in all, is completely realistic given her circumstances. We have Pete snooping around the office for a higher position, but also something that will impact his opinion of Don. Peggy is also dealing with her weight gain in an unusual manner. All of the performers shine here, and this is an excellent episode of a lighter Mad Men.
