Storyline

The firm is on a high as Don has been nominated for a Clio Award for the Glo-Coat ad. The one person who has some issue specifically with Don is Peggy, who feels that Don has not provided any recognition for her significant contribution to that ad and who is not among those from the company invited to the awards ceremony at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. On top of that, Don is giving her deadline ultimatums for the Vicks account, the hold-ups which she feels are not her fault, but that of the new art director, Stan Rizzo, who Don seems to respect more than her. To make their working relationship function, Peggy takes Stan up on what she considers a bluff, which has mixed reactions. During this time, an inebriated Don also pitches a bad and stolen idea to their Life cereal clients, who love the idea. Peggy, at that meeting, knows its original source. That action by Don may be the last Peggy will tolerate from him in this already bad weekend for her. Don gets out of this predicament in a ... Written by Huggo

This episode has the feel of a pilot episode.
23 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

This episode was aired during the middle of season 4, but the parts where Roger Sterling is flashing back to when he first met Don Draper would have been an excellent introduction of Draper to the viewers in the series premier. Also, this episode could have been a stand alone mini movie, you would not need to have seen any of the previous episodes to understand what is going on. Not many shows can produce an episode in the middle of their 4th or 5th season that has the feel of a pilot. Not many drama shows halfway into their 4th season can have the feel of a movie where a storyline isn't dependent on previous episodes. And yet, the story of this episode ties in with the rest of the series. This episode had a beginning, middle, and ending. There was no "wait until next week" to see the conclusion of the story. Nor was it a "monster of the week" like the X-files used to do, then nothing from that episode is ever relevant to the series again. Not all Mad Men episodes are like this, and I'm not sure the writers intended any of it. If they did, I doubt many other writers could pull something like this off.
