Mad Men Season 7 Premiere Recap: The Men and the Girls

  Like most Mad Men episodes, “Time Zones” is about more than one thing, but its core is about disappointment. Specifically, it’s about the gap between fantasy and reality, and the ache that we feel as we stare into it. This hour’s four central characters are Peggy Olson, Joan Holloway, Roger Sterling, and Don Draper. All have achieved great things. But the difference between their dreams of happiness and their reality is never far from the episode’s mind. This is a brilliant episode, different from but as good as The Sopranos ’ similar “College” and “University.” The four characters’ similar problems are placed adjacent to each other like time zones on a map. The episode switches from one subplot to another via transitions (dissolves that become wipes, and unnerving cuts-to-black). These certify that we’re seeing parallel stories that mirror each other but that don’t overlap or converge.   Read More... //www.vulture.com/2014/04/mad-men-recap-season-7-premiere.html

Mad Men 7.01 Review: “Time Zones”

AMC has had quite a run over the past decade or so. They went from an obscure movie channel that was principally known for its showing of older films to one of the most envied producers of content on the planet, and it’s because of their work in the creation and production of two the greatest and most complete shows of televisions “Golden Age” in Breaking Bad and  Mad Men. Breaking Bad ended last fall, and it left a void that has been nigh impossible to fill. “True Detective” did admirable work, but as good as that show was that it learned all the wrong lessons in what made a great “Golden Age” show; not brooding male protagonists or dark plots just for the sake of dark plots, but instead strong and meaningful character and plot work that holds a candle up to society and illuminates what we otherwise did not want to see. So, while it was good and fun and even slightly profound TV, it still lacked the power, or the punch, of an all-time classic.
