Matt Weiner on CBS This Morning, says we are in a malaise just as he is portraying the MadMen mood in 1968. A precursor to one of the most tumultuous years in modern memory. Tet Offensive. Assassinations. MLK, RFK. Birth of Nixonian era. Are we on the brink again? He thinks so.
Meanwhile, MadMen6 continues to disappoint. Joan is acting more like a secretary than a partner, in and out of the office. Peggy betrays her former colleague, but at least it’s part of the mAd game. Don has devolved from a conflict in progress to a hypocritical jerk. Sylvia is really unattractive, in every way. Blech. Keep hope alive for a better show. Next week.
