Mad Men is pretty good this season, the pace of the show has definitely quickened and the hour flew by, but it is still not as good as all the critics will lead you to believe. Jon Hamm gave one of his weaker acting performances of the season, and Elisabeth Moss just has no idea of how to play her character which still continues to struggle in navigating a personal and professional life. I hope that the show is building toward an explosive season finale, but right now it does not look that way.
And please, stop ending every scene with an unfunny joke. This is not Two and a Half Men, you don't have to do that.
