Storyline

If they get what they want, this public offering would make each of the partners a millionaire. Over at CGC, Ted deals with the news that fellow partner Frank Gleason is suffering from pancreatic cancer, which makes Ted think about the viability of their company. Otherwise, the thoughts in both offices are on cars. Herb Rennet at Jaguar has requested a business dinner with Don and Roger, which Don is dreading if only for his disdain for Herb and by association the Jaguar account.

Trivia

The closing theme (as Peggy types the release) is a semi-original composition: a fusion of "Autumn Leaves" by Cannonball Adderley (1958, with Miles Davis ) and "Tropicando" by Les Baxter & 101 Strings Orchestra (1970). See more »

Quotes

Don Draper: [about deliberately losing Jaguar] Joan, don't worry. I will win this.
Joan Harris: Just once I would like to hear you use the word "we" because we're all rooting for you from the sidelines, hoping that you'll decide whatever you think is right for our lives.

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 06

The sixth act is somewhat of a pre-climatic setup as it not only teases the audience for the upcoming journey but also builds up the characters and the plot accordingly to attain a steady narrative closure for the makers.

For Immediate Release

The business tactics that are kept under the sleeve are unexpected and works like a charm when it hits on screen but its rudimentary process and over-chewing character's perspective since it wasn't essential in this one, throws it away.
