  • The Prize Fight

    For a mid-season episode Mad Men sure knows how to deliver. On the night of the Muhammad Ali and Liston title fight Don and Peggy put their heads together to get ideas on a campaign for Samsonite (luggage) and it causes very personal repercussions for Peggy as she delves deeper into being more like Don. Her relationship with Mark (boyfriend) is put to the test on the phone and they have a falling out. The fact that Don now constantly singles out Peggy to make her feel bad is just bullying when before he was a chronic drunk he spoke harsh words to her but it was more of Don knew that Peggy was capable of greater things and is more like him than anyone else so he expects more now it's just being a jerk. The chemistry is excellently pulled off by Jon Hamm and Elizabeth Moss and the working relationship is stressed and forced to work for a common goal. By far the best of the season thus far, and hopefully more to come.
