After a mostly lackluster third season I found myself thoroughly entertained tonight with this episode. Nothing fancy, no overly exciting storylines, but the writing was smart, the acting was above average and things just clicked. This felt like Season 1 when the show was just fresh and innovative, not cliched, hackneyed and unoriginal.
If the show would just keep things simple, like having Don go through problems with upper management, like the ever-growing love/hate relationship between Pete and Peggy, and like Betty trying to venture out on her own than I would love this show again. But when Matthew Weiner tries to use Mad Men to launch his political views or to embarrass his cast, then I do not really care for the show.
