Mad Men Season 7

mad-men-season-6

The tone of Mad Men hasn’t been the same for years. Season 6 was so disjointed and all over the place, it was hard to stay interested. Season 7 premiered last night and I wasn’t impressed. Things  at SC&P has changed.  They have a new guy named Lou. Who is no Don Draper, but people seem to like him. Well, except Peggy. Lou  is making Peggy work hard for his praise. Ted has moved his family to California to get away from Peggy. Because he loved her too much. Hey, that’s kind of what he said. Pete is in California as well and he’s gone Hollywood. California is the type of place you have to embrace or you will hate it. Peter has embraced and made love to California.

We see Don arrive in California and he looks to be in great spirits. Megan is taking meetings and settling into her new home. Their sex life appears to have fizzled. But, Don is in good spirits through it all. He even turns down a young hot traveler on his plane back to New York. The old Don Draper would have took her in the bathroom and punched his miles high club card. Roger is being Roger. He has a young lady love that loves orgies. His daughter wants to reconnect. Probably for money. Joan is determined to make a name for herself at the agency.

I really didn’t find this episode interesting at all. So, I am going to spare you the rest. I hope the next episode is better than this one.

The Triumphant Return Of Mad Men

After a very  long hiatus, Mad Men returned with a bang. The hiatus gave people who were not acquainted with the critically acclaimed series time to catch up. For a long time I believed season 1 was the best season. And I was hanging on by a very thin thread by the end of season 4. But, last nights episode sucked me right back in. I was pleasantly surprised by the storylines  and witty banter. However, where was Betty Draper? I have to be honest I had not noticed she was missing from the episode until this morning! Oh well… maybe next episode!

Episode 1 of season 5 is centered around each character adjusting to the new changes in their lives  and Don’s new life with his french Canadian wife:

Here is a very brief summary of last nights episode (no real spoilers alert):

The new Mrs. Draper throws Don a great surprise party that has everyone talking at work, but has she and Don at odds.

Peggy has a loving sweet Boyfriend. And she is a little concerned with the new Don.

Pete is making big moves at the agency and feels like his office should reflect that.

Joan had Roger Sterling’s baby and wants to head back to work.

Roger is Roger…. but he isn’t the power house he once was. But he is still a partner.

Lane is still a creepy weirdo cheat with an accent.

Sally is still doing strange shhh…

Can’t wait for the next episode. Hopefully Betty will show up.
