Trivia

The episode reveals that Peggy is a Roman Catholic who attends church with her family. The fact that she does not partake in communion indicates that she has not been to confession in recent times and is thus not in a "state of grace" according to the Church. The service is conducted in Latin, in a nice historically accurate touch, as this is pre-Vatican II. See more »

Mad Men

Mad Men; one of the most acclaimed series by critics, loved by the fans and buzzed at the award shows, is a character driven series created by Matthew Weiner depicting the inner world of an ad agencies set in '60s in New York. The writing is sharp, elaborative, adaptive and exquisite that keeps the audience tangled in its not-so-likable and faulty world on the edge of their seat.

It is rich on technical aspects like projecting the chemistry among the characters, stunning cinematography, beautiful camera work, references mentioned in the conversations and the classic tone of the series that makes it supremely watchable.

The primary reason why the series stands alone is not only its nature to work in a metaphorical way but to weave out a poem from the sequence, is the genuine soul behind it that attains a certain closure in each episode. The performance objective is score majestically by the cast especially by the protagonist Jon Hamm who is supported convincingly by the cast like Elisabeth Moss, Vincent Kartheiser, January Jones and John Slattery.

The practical conversations, the whistle-blowing dialogues, three-dimensional characters, excellent execution, finely detailed set-pieces, alluring costume design are the high points of the series that helps it enter the major league.

Season 02

The second act is deliberately slow and is aptly executed as the story demands for it to be, which is one of the main reason why it stands alone than any other series, as the concept is given the priority rather than focusing on the characters or actors, which also helps the makers to go fluently and visit unknown places.

Flight 1

The writers wisely offers the antagonist to deliver something positive and displays a newer angle or light on their character that latter helps them give an appropriate depth and gravitas that creates an impactful impression on viewers.
