mad woman

I have been recently watching the t.v. show "Mad Men" in the background of taking practice MBE questions. I know that everyone is supposed to love this show, but it was really nothing special until I got to episode 9 this afternoon. The ending with Mrs. Draper in her backyard shooting at pigeons with a cigarette hanging out of her perfectly lipsticked mouth was enough to make me want to finish the season.

Well done, Mrs. Draper. Well done.

Why do you think Mrs. Draper wants to photograph her daughter crying, anyway?

One reason I like the show is for the contradictions. Every character casts a dark shadow. But they all work at (or benefit from) an ad agency that specializes in portraying images that are clean, wholesome, and antiseptic.
