Mad Men Season 4 Sneak Peak
Mad Men Season 4 starts in just one week. As hard as it was to wait all this time, I found something more painful. I got an advance copy of the first episode a week ago and I can't talk about it. Truly, I wouldn't want to spoil it for all of you anyway.
What I will say is this, Matt Weiner does not disappoint. The first episode answers a lot of our questions from season three. Everything is familiar but different. Roger Sterling's quips are hilariously inappropriate, the clients aren't happy, office camaraderie is in full swing and Don's got girls stashed all over town. Many of the characters seem to have intensified certain aspects of their personality, some for the better and some for the worse.
I think we'll have lots of twists and turns this season, some of which seem to be foreshadowed in the season opener. I have a bunch of theories but those will have to wait until after this episode airs.
Could I be any vaguer. It's like I said Sunday July 25th can not come soon enough. I'm dying to talk details.
If you're interested here is the interview and post I did when Janie Bryant was at LACMA a month ago.
