Sarah and I had so much fun doing our Downton Abbey recaps that we decided we would do the same thing for the other show we are both crazy about: Mad Men. the draper report mad men season premeire recap It seems like we’ve been waiting ages for this show to come back on the air, and the premeire . . . was not what we expected. I’ll avoid spoilers here, but we found the episode dark and confusing.  We are dying to hear if you agree with our reactions.

Did you like the episode? Did you find it slow? What are your thoughts on the underlying themes of existential angst and Don’s anxiety about death?
