The Finger Threat

"Your hero is a whore, pimping his pretty wife. That's his job, and he has to wash his mouth out, wipe his hand on the napkin -- even for cable TV, that's some dirty, dirty stuff. If you had been lulled into thinking Don Draper was a good guy, and that Mad Men was a show about impeccable production design, last night's linchpin scene was a warning: Anything can happen." -- Nussbaum on Mad Men.


is this show going off the rails a little bit? half of the episode had a kind of slapstick feel to it, like "jose chung's 'from outer space'".

the other half -- the dark stuff -- was decent and well-timed, but how does it align with the cog-in-the-machine stuff we've seen earlier?

the funny is funny and the drama is dramatic, but are we in the middle of a difficult sophomore album?

Draper is a bad boy and we love him for that. I am sure the rest of the season will bring more moments like these- hopefully he'll show Betsy some rough lovin' too.
