Half a year ago, I floated the idea of rewatching Mad Men, one of my favorite shows of all time, and writing capsule reviews for each episode with a couple of friends. It never happened, but a review of the series premiere that I wrote as a proof of concept has been sitting in the queue ever since. I figure, why not publish it? I miss you all and I’ll get this blog up and running again someday, just not today. Enjoy!
Why do people want what they want? What makes those wants into needs? Is it love, whether love of a person or love of an object, or is “love” just something that’s been made up to make us think that we need the things we want? This string of questions runs through all ninety-two episodes of the hit TV series Mad Men, which ran from 2007 to 2015 on AMC, but the pilot episode draws them into the spotlight like nothing else.
