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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

TV Korner: Mad Men 5.5 – “Signal 30”

After last week’s foray into some seriously dark territory, Matthew Weiner and company wouldn’t have been remiss to tone things down a little bit for this week.  Instead, they took the focus off of Don and put it on Pete, who is slowly becoming the show’s most compelling and tragic character.  All in all, “Signal…

TV Korner: Mad Men 5.4 – “Mystery Date”

Matthew Weiner is not playing games. “Mystery Date,” the ironically-titled latest episode of Mad Men proves that, with a plot denser than any I can remeber for this show, and a rapid-fire succession of compelling and downright brutal character moments which bring the pacing of this season to a breakneck new speed. It makes for…

TV Korner: Mad Men 5.3 – “Tea Leaves”

After last week’s nigh-flawless double premiere, I had my doubts that this week’s episode of Mad Men would be able to match up. It didn’t, but average by this show’s standards is still pretty fantastic, so who am I to complain?

TV Korner: Mad Men 5.1 – “A Little Kiss”

It’s been a long year and a half wait for AMC’s Mad Men to return to the air, and this week’s double-length premiere had a lot to offer us starving SCDP addicts. As we enter 1966 with Don Draper and his fellow ad men, the scene is immediately set for a whole new world, between…
