Storyline

Don has been loitering outside the Rosens' apartment. Sylvia sees the signs that he has been doing so and implores him to stop although Don is desperate to continue the liaison with her. At the office, Ken has been taking the brunt of the issues with the Chevy account, and it is he who relays to the partners that GM has provided a three year timeline with key deadlines, the next to take place the upcoming Monday in 72 hours. It's bad timing especially for the former CGC partners and staff as Frank Gleason has just passed away, meaning that some have to make a presence at the funeral, while others have to work the weekend for that next presentation to GM. To deal with a work related injury that Ken suffered, as well as provide those working the weekend with a boost, Jim calls in his personal physician who provides a vitamin and energy shot to most of the creative staff and partners to get them through the weekend to battle the probable exhaustion that would occur otherwise.

Goofs

When Don walks in his office to find Wendy sitting cross-legged on his couch, her skirt is pulled up, showing both legs, and the stethoscope she is wearing can be seen dangling against her left leg. In the next shot of her, the skirt is pulled down, and the stethoscope is not visible. In the final shot before she gets off the couch, the skirt is back up and you can see the stethoscope dangling again. 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 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.

The Crash

The repercussion are irrevocable and full of guilt and addition to that, the stakes had never been higher, for if not one's itself, Hamm's character has always been poised and unbreakable in its self-created spirit.
