Last night brought another flock of people to the Hollywood Theatre to watch Mad Men on the big screen. And another Best Dressed contest. For the evening, I wore a number that was my mum’s from her years at college…
Take a peek at my mum in the dress. She enjoyed pairing it with a red with white polka-dot bow.
While there were about 30 people who came up on stage for the season premiere, last night only four, including myself, braved the stage lights. I didn’t win, but I was okay with that. I lost to a well dressed older woman. I think next week though I’ll break out my fringe dress, and that’ll wow ’em! And at some point the go-go boots will make an appearance!
As for the episode itself…it was tad disappointing, I won’t lie. As our host Nico Bella put it, the episode had “100 percent less Joan than last time”. Instead the episode brought back Betty, in a manner I wasn’t quite expecting, and focused on Peggy being passed over for “someone with a penis” as Roger put it with regards to the return of Mohawk Airlines to the agency, as well as some more insight into Roger and Don. I enjoyed their private conversation over Pete’s dig, and Don discussing Betty’s possible cancer. I am also eager to see if Don’s new, African-American secretary, Dawn, will become anything aside from being part of a Don/Dawn joke.
