Mad Men Season 3

MAD MEN Season 3
Existential angst, marital woes, corporate uncertainty and overall anxiety overwhelm this season as the staff of Sterling Cooper deal with the end of the shiny, polished postwar era. The inevitable JFK assassination episode felt eerily dire and painfully real, foreshadowing a milieu shift to the more turbulent Sixties next season.

Agreed. There is an abundant wealth of content from the Viet Nam era that Mad Men can tap for seasons to come. But if they add someone's "cousin" as a character, the show is doomed. (Brady Bunch "cousin Oliver syndrome", need I say more?)

I am not into the blatant Sopranos-esque formula rip-off this season..

"cue music... and scene."
