TV Korner: Mad Men 6.13 – “In Care Of”

mad men 6_13This season of Mad Men played fast and loose and heady, just like Don Draper himself, building up to a finale that doesn’t just beg, but screams the question– where do we go from here?

TV Korner: Mad Men 6.3 – “The Collaborators”

madmen-collaboratorsWorlds better than last week’s self-indulgent premiere, “The Collaborators” still didn’t quite come together as this rocky season of Mad Men rolls on.

TV Korner: Mad Men 5.13 – “The Phantom” (Bill’s Take)

Or, the one where SCDP starts making real money, Megan starts acting, and everyone comes to realize they will be alone forever.

TV Korner: Mad Men 5.13 – “The Phantom”

After last week’s emotional powerhouse of an episode, this week’s Mad Men ended the fifth season on a comparatively low note.  Some stories were brought to an abrupt end while others just began, and some of the less prominent characters didn’t even get mentioned.  The strongest episode of the season it was not, but “The Phantom” still managed to cover a lot of ground and set the foundation for what should be a great sixth season.

TV Korner: Mad Men 5.12 – “Commissions & Fees”

Ouch, that really hurt. While Sally becomes a woman, Don gets more aggressive than ever (at least, in the office), and we say an incredibly sad goodbye to a partner at SCDP.  This had to be the gut-punching-est episode of Mad Men yet.

TV Korner: Mad Men 5.11 – “The Other Woman”

Never have times been so tumultuous behind the glass walls at SDCP than in the latest episode of Mad Men.  Almost the entire episode focused tightly on the business side of things, specifically the agency’s attempt to acquire Jaguar and the measures it took to do so.  It was intense, emotional, and ultimately heartbreaking, and it was the most captivating episode of this season.

TV Korner: Man Men 5.10 – “Christmas Waltz”

This week’s Mad Men moves the plot along, as we start to approach the finale of the incredible season, with some plot points falling into place– or rather, falling apart– for the team at SCDP.  This week also sees the return of Paul Kinsey, the ad man left behind when Lane fired Don and company from McCann so they could start their own business.

TV Korner: Mad Men 5.9 – “Dark Shadows”

Continuing the interesting theme of each new episode being centered on some specific human emotion, “Dark Shadows” explores feelings of jealousy.   Even though most of the characters in the show are fairly well-off and happy some of the time, they all have something to be jealous about; someone else’s body, wife, creative talent, recognition, so on and so forth.  While not the most exciting or revelatory episode of the season, “Dark Shadows” serves as yet another brilliant character study of some of the most compelling characters around.

TV Korner: Mad Men 5.8 – “Lady Lazarus”

It’s been another intense week at SCDP. After last week’s foray into all kinds of disappointments, it seems about time for a little bit of redemption… but coming at it straight away wouldn’t be much fun, so instead “Lady Lazarus” continues to build to a decisive make or break moment for the increasingly conflicted Don Draper, and a subtle cliffhanger that packs way more punch than an horde of zombies or a terrorist threat ever could.

TV Korner: Mad Men 5.7 – “At the Codfish Ball”

This week’s episode of Mad Men was full of disappointments.  No, that doesn’t mean that I was disappointed with the show; it means that almost every character was severely unhappy about something.  The balance that “At the Codfish Ball” struck among the many different storylines was incredible and it ended up being a solid, if somewhat subdued, episode.
