100-Word Premiere: Mad Men

Mad Men JoanEschewing the treatise usually dedicated to reviewing any episode of Mad Men, I’ll just say that the show has finally drawn me in after years of being in my “no” pile — mainly because, in season six, it’s finally reached a narrative momentum most shows do, and should, reach in seasons two or three. Don remains a cypher too opaque to interest me, but Peggy’s professional success, Betty’s caged bird routine, and Roger’s musings on life, death and doorways kept me intrigued. A show that’s come into its own since it realised that story isn’t a dirty word. I’m game.
