Herb Rennet at Jaguar wants Don and Pete to recommend a specific strategy to head office. Don doesn't agree with the strategy, but Pete believes they have to give him what he wants or risk losing them as clients. Can Don and Pete provide a united front at the Jaguar meeting?

Quotes

Trudy Campbell: There's no way for me to escape, to not be an object of pity while you get to do whatever you feel like. I have never said "no" to you.
Pete Campbell: That is not true! What are we doing out here?
Trudy Campbell: We're done, Peter. This is over.
Pete Campbell: You want a divorce?
Trudy Campbell: I refuse to be a failure. I don't care what you want anymore. This is how it's going to work: You will be here only when I tell you to be here. I'm drawing a fifty mile radius around this house, and if you so much as open your fly to urinate, I will destroy you. ...

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 06

The sixth act is somewhat of a pre-climatic setup as it not only teases the audience for the upcoming journey but also builds up the characters and the plot accordingly to attain a steady narrative closure for the makers.

Collaborators

The habitual narrative is one of the strength of the series and despite of its constant irritating creation, the characters never appear shallow and instead grows more powerful and mature as they age on screen.
