Storyline

Three news items affect the SCDP staff and their families. The first news item is the rape and murder of nurses in Chicago. Although Henry's mother Pauline, who is babysitting Sally while Henry and Betty are on a business trip, doesn't believe such news stories should be heard or read by someone of Sally's age, it ultimately becomes a meeting point for the two in what is otherwise an antagonistic relationship. The second news items is the general race riots taking place across the country. This news item initiates a meeting point between Peggy and Dawn, the two seeming outsiders at SCDP. And the third news item is an airlines mechanics strike which has a different affect on Mohawk than it does on its larger competitors. As Mohawk is still operating through the strike, they continue on with their other business such as their advertising. This news catches Roger off guard, he who has to think fast or get someone else to think fast to get a pitch ready from scratch over the weekend. ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

When Greg arrives home and sees Kevin for the first time, he asks Gail to get the "Brownie". The Brownie is a camera made by Eastman Kodak, first released in 1900. Considered one of the most important cameras invented, the last official Brownie model was made in the 1980's. Greg and Joan's camera was most likely a Brownie 127, as millions were sold from 1952 to 1967. See more »

Mad Men

Mad Men; one of the most acclaimed series by critics, loved by the fans and buzzed at the award shows, is a character driven series created by Matthew Weiner depicting the inner world of an ad agencies set in '60s in New York. The writing is sharp, elaborative, adaptive and exquisite that keeps the audience tangled in its not-so-likable and faulty world on the edge of their seat.

It is rich on technical aspects like projecting the chemistry among the characters, stunning cinematography, beautiful camera work, references mentioned in the conversations and the classic tone of the series that makes it supremely watchable.

The primary reason why the series stands alone is not only its nature to work in a metaphorical way but to weave out a poem from the sequence, is the genuine soul behind it that attains a certain closure in each episode. The performance objective is score majestically by the cast especially by the protagonist Jon Hamm who is supported convincingly by the cast like Elisabeth Moss, Vincent Kartheiser, January Jones and John Slattery.

The practical conversations, the whistle-blowing dialogues, three-dimensional characters, excellent execution, finely detailed set-pieces, alluring costume design are the high points of the series that helps it enter the major league.

Season 05

The fifth act wisely doesn't rely upon any out-of-topic one's usual project or case and instead is tangled enough in its office politics and personal morale conflicts to depict any of the outer world dilemmas which makes it probably the smoothest act of all if not smarter.

Mystery Date

There isn't much content in front of the screen but it's wise take on depicting the inner monologues through a metaphorical tone and sequences does speak a lot through it but it also unfortunately takes away its subtle tone with it.
