Mad Men s3.8

Mad Men Season 3, Episode 8
Sunday night on AMC

Episode Synopsis from TV Guide:
Don decides to include Betty on a company business trip; Pete lends a hand to a neighbor in his apartment building.

My thoughts:
-my weekly segment with a focus on the chicks
-for a great recap go to What's Alan Watching?

Betty - the "We Won" dancing around bit was so awkward to watch.  She was so fake. What would a truly "happy" Betty look like?

Ahhh, Roma!  She know eye-talian!?!  and apparently very well according to the Italian men flirting with her or were they humoring her with their praise? Because, she really did not sound Italian. Where was the hand waving gestures and emotion when speaking. Maybe I'm stereotypical, but that's Italian.

OK, enough Betty bashing. I admit, Betty was so chic and stylish in this episode. Amazing hair updo. Great to see a bit more of her modeling herstory come into play.

Sally - mirrors her mom including the temperament

Joan - yay! we see her again. Again, she's in a managerial position which suits her. Is she gonna go back to Sterling Cooper? I wonder. I hope.

Peggy - no Peggy

Trudy - ever the trooper, the epitomy of the perfect young executive's wife

Quote that got me:
When you don't have any power, you have to delay things. - Betty

According to the San Francisco article, October 11, 2009 
Mad Men Dresses Up Masculinity:

Few TV shows in recent memory has done more to affect how men dress than AMC's "Mad Men." Though the fashion set had been moving toward slimmer cuts, thinner ties and a more adult style, "Mad Men" offered a seductively masculine aesthetic anchored to a yearned-for era and a strong sartorial ethos.
