Mad Men s3.13

Mad Men Season 3, Episode 13, Finale
Shut The Door. Have A Seat
Sunday night on AMC

In the third-season finale, Don has a pivotal meeting with Connie (Chelcie Ross); Betty is the beneficiary of some interesting advice; and Pete has a serious sit-down with some clients.

My thoughts:
-my weekly segment
-for a great recap go to What's Alan Watching?

Don - breakthrough, growth, change, true-self, relations somewhat mended with Betty, Peggy and Roger

Betty - scary to see her go from one marriage into another or maybe not? i hope not.

Joan - she's baaaaack

Peggy - love the way she was able to articulate and define herself with Don

Trudy - goodness, there is more to her than we know, like Joan her inner being is waiting to be unleashed into the work world. wonder if she'll join in the new business with her husband. i hope so.

Quote that got me:
Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce
-Joan answering first phone call

I liked this because it is the sign of a new beginning.

Here's one for my want it list...

Kings of Madison Avenue:
The Unofficial Guide to Mad Men
by Jesse McLean

Reveling in the consumerist decadence of AMC’s infamous advertising house Sterling Cooper, this complementary volume to the groundbreaking series Mad Men provides behind-the-scenes revelations, episode guides, cast biographies, and rich sidebar content, including “How to Party Like the Mad Men.”

Delving beneath the glitz and glamour to highlight the workings of a sophisticated modern classic, this definitive fan guide also offers fascinating sociological context and cultural analysis. The details of historical ad campaigns that are woven into the show’s storylines are provided—such as Volkswagen Beetle’s landmark “Think Small” campaign, the Nixon/Kennedy presidential push, and the creation of Lucky Strike’s “It’s toasted” slogan. This is the ultimate guide to a series that has been praised by the New York Times, Time magazine, and USA Today.
