Storyline

As a start, he wants to transfer the advertising business of his New York hotels to Sterling Cooper. Don is reluctant to specify the nature of Connie's visit to the staff, who are all abuzz about Don even knowing the powerful Hilton, let alone the possibility of working on a campaign for Hilton Hotels. On the pretense of the new Hilton account, Bertram, Roger and Lane discuss an administrative issue with Don. Betty gets caught in the middle of the battle between Don and the partners. Don himself gets caught up in two other unusual incidents, the first with Sally's teacher Miss Farrell, and the second with a couple he picks up who are hitchhiking to Niagara Falls.

Mad men has quickly proved to be one of the most interesting series out there. Everything is so masterfully done - from settings to character development and story. It's just hard not to love it! True, there are some people who have issues with the series cause of the era it represents. It's not surprising, but their reactions, for me, prove only further how well Mad men is crafted... Forgetting that the show is filmed nowadays instead of in the 60s is an easy task. We should all enjoy and appreciate it! ;))

This particular episode amazed me. Its story was presented in a completely different way and still it was in the spirit of Mad men... I honestly don't know where the writers and the creator get all of those wonderful ideas, but don't care - as long as they keep up the great work!
