Review of season two of Mad Men, which is very much a transitional year for the show.
“Meditations in an Emergency” perfectly concludes a transitional season for Mad Men.
“The Jet Set” takes Mad Men to California for a much needed breath of fresh air.
The end of “The Inheritance” is the exact moment when Mad Men goes from good to great.
“Six Month Leave” gives a beloved background character a proper send-off.
January Jones’ acting ability can sometimes fall flat, as exemplified by her performance in “A Night to Remember.”
“The Gold Violin” has a lot to say about Don Draper, office dynamics and modern art.
“Maidenform” is another beautifully-crafted episode of Mad Men, despite being full of ugly emotions.
An unexpected plot twist leads to an unexpected flashback in Mad Men’s “The New Girl”
“The Benefactor” is one of Mad Men’s funniest episodes, and also one of its best.
“Flight 1” is, even by Mad Men standards, another slow-moving episode.
The Mad Men season two premiere picks up 15 months after season one left off.
