Storyline

There's trouble in both the Sterling and Hofstadt families. With the Sterlings, Roger's daughter Margaret informs him that she doesn't want his wife, Jane, at her wedding, Margaret being ashamed that her step-mother is the same age as her. With the Hofstadts, Gene's Alzheimer's is getting worse, and his wife Gloria has left him. As such, Betty and her brother William have to make some decisions about what to do with their father. William gets some unsolicited and unwanted advice in this matter. At the office, two accounts are on the minds of the executives. One is for Patio Cola, Pepsi's diet soda. Pepsi wants to go with an Ann-Margret Bye Bye Birdie (1963) feel. Peggy does not agree with this approach. Despite that, Peggy is feeling in an Ann-Margret spirit in her personal life. The other has Don trying to win the business of the town's new planned multi-purpose facility, Madison Square Gardens. Don gets some bad and unexpected news on this front. Written by Huggo

Joan Harris thrilled me!!!
3 May 2017 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

My brother gave me this third season...l though well let's see this show even been a second hand box...when l watched the first episode l found it very interesting mainly because the series is settled in the sixties, where the people used to smoke to much,women wants work and all those women's costumers very unique from that decade and the beauty Joan Harris who is woman's dream of the sixties with big breast and very very sexy...anyway this kind of environment thrilled me...this episode is low that previous but still good....let's see next one!!!
