    The latest episode of Mad Men was actually pretty good, a first for this season, but not for the right reasons. Double M actually manages to excel at creating unintentional humor, such as when Don gets angry or the feud between Pete and Roger Sterling.

    But the stuff they wrote thinking would be funny was not. The old lady secretary is a jumping the shark moment, and the story arc with the little girl rebelling is just not something this show needs. This show skews older, so why waste time with an angry nine year old, or whatever she is?
