What I'm Watching: Mad Men

Mad Men: Season 2, Episode 9 "The Inheritance" (B+)

It's quite interesting to get a peek into each of the characters' family lives, in this case Betty and Pete and their respective parents. I'm fascinated by the way things now work at the office with Roger, who seems especially lonely and like has he nothing to do and no one to talk to. The scene where he comes in and interrupts Joan and Don with nothing to actually say epitomizes this new setup. It's rather harsh the way Don simply bumps Paul from his trip to Los Angeles just so that he can get away for a bit. Only two more episodes from this season - I'm hoping to see more of the inner workings at the office as well as some of the supporting characters, like Sal and Peggy.
