Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
The third season of AMC's acclaimed 1960's-era drama picks up some time after the Season 2 dust has settled, with Sterling Cooper's new British owners Putnam Powell Lowe now trimming staff, PPL executive Lane Pryce (Jared Harris) in charge to some extent, and Duck Phillips (Mark Moses) evidently gone. Don Draper (Jon Hamm) and his wife Betty (January Jones) expect their third child soon, although their relationship remains damaged. Series creator Matthew Weiner again masterfully stirs the pot, slowly revealing layers of all the primary characters in this Draper-centric universe over the 13-episode run. Episode 1, "Out of Town," sends Don and closeted design director Salvatore Romano (Bryan Batt) on a business trip to Baltimore where, Don dallies with a stewardess while Sal comes about face with his sexual destiny. Repercussions from Roger Sterling's (John Slattery) Season 2 divorce resonate in "Love Among the Ruins," as his daughter doesn't want him at her wedding, while at Draper's, Betty's ailing dad (Ryan Cutrona) arrives for an uncomfortable stay. Parallel party story lines in "My Old Kentucky Home" involve Roger and his 22-year-old bride Jane (Peyton List) having people for Derby Day while office manager Joan Harris (Christina Hendricks) makes dinner for hubby Greg's (Sam Page) friends. Back at Draper's, little Sally (Kiernan Shipka) lightens Grandpa's wallet when he's not looking. Grandpa sets "The Arrangements" in motion when he keels over in the supermarket. Sterling Cooper heats up as they bag the jai alai account and Sal directs the Patio commercial. In "The Fog," Sally continues to act out by getting into a fight at school, which leads the Drapers in for a conference with Miss Farrell (Abigail Spencer). Also, Duck -- now at Grey Adverting -- pops up with an offer for Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss) and Pete Campbell (Vincent Kartheiser). PPL execs arrive at Sterling Cooper with their restructuring plan in "Guy Walks Into an Advertising Agency," just as Joan celebrates her final day at the office, and hotelier Conrad Hilton (Chelcie Ross) makes Don's impressed acquaintance. Signing the Hilton account dominates "Seven Twenty Three," as it requires Don signing a three-year contract. Betty's work with the Junior League affords an excuse to contact her acquaintance from the governor's office, Henry Francis (Christopher Stanley) for help on the reservoir project. Henry's influence helps Betty get the project tabled in "Souvenir," and then she and Don rekindle their romance when she joins him on a business trip to Rome. Things really begin to heat up in episode 9 -- "Wee Small Hours" -- which finds Don hooking up with Miss Farrell; Betty corresponding with Henry; and Sal getting canned when he refuses a Lucky Strike's executive's advances, and Sterling Cooper has to choose him or the account. As the agency celebrates 40 years in "The Color Blue," PPL's London office tells Lane that another transaction is in the works. Betty also finds the keys to Don's secret drawer. She confronts him regarding its contents in "The Gypsy and the Hobo," and simultaneously interrupts his liaison with Miss Farrell. John F. Kennedy's assassination provides the backdrop for "The Grown Ups," in which Betty finds the words to respond to Don's shocking revelations. Conveniently, at Margaret Sterling's wedding, Betty and Henry meet again. The season comes to a shuddering close in "Shut the Door. Have a Seat," as Don, Roger, Bert Cooper (Robert Morse, and Lane agree to sever ties with PPL-Sterling Cooper and launch their own agency. Betty also files for divorce from Don.

    Great Series

    This series captures ever-changing world of the late 50's and early 60's with style and flair. The show keeps you riveted making you want to watch the next episode because you cannot wait to see what happens next in the characters lives. Production value like none other, each episode feels like a movie. So sit back and enjoy television at it's best.
