Mad Men is back!

Season three starts just a few months after season two ended... by my estimation it's the spring of 1963. Betty's quite pregnant, the firm's British owners have swept away 1/3 of the workforce, and while some things have changed, some are still far too much the same.

I love this show. Every line could be taken at least three separate ways. I love the way that Don and Sal seem to be discussing work when they're discussing each other's weaknesses. I love the fact that Don constantly has to confront the way he treats women through the most innocent interactions with his own daughter.

I love the way that Peggy never seems like a witch as she tosses acerbic comments to her secretary. I love the way the new English secretary tries to convince everyone that "secretary" means something different in Great Britain.

I was a little let down by the deus ex machina aspect of having a fire drill save both Don and Salvatore from making a huge mistake. Too convenient, I say, and unworthy of the otherwise excellent writing.

Overall I think the season's off to a fine start, and a fine reminder (one the whole nation needs) of why scripted television at its best is better than unscripted television could ever be.
