  • Don gets in an accident.

    I guess it looks like shows in 2008 based on 1962 can be unoriginal too. We have the generic getting into an accident story (has anyone ever driven a car on TV, ever, without crashing?) and the almost as overdone "revealing" secretary.

    This episode was boring, but not as much as the past couple of weeks. Why Peggy continues to get so much airtime will be question that will boggle my mind until next week's episode, when I will, without thought, ask it again. Vincent Kartheiser was good again this week, yet Pete is continually underutilized by the Mad Men program. Jimmy's wife is uber-annoying and her annoying presence is a constant downer on the show. I was actually considering granting this episode a higher rating, but the scene with the zipper pulling killed it.
