‘A Young Doctor’s Notebook’ Season 2 Unites Harry Potter and Don Draper in a Black-hearted Character Study

A Young Doctor’s Notebook is a show that risks being overwhelmed by its own premise. The SparkNotes version: Harry Potter and Don Draper! Harry Potter and Don Draper, playing the same person! Harry Potter and Don Draper, playing the same person, based — sort of — on Mikhail Bulgakov! The high-profile casting and source material, however, belie the series’ stakes (small) and its scope (smaller). Such cognitive dissonance may make A Young Doctors Notebook a disappointment to some, but when taken on its own terms, the show is a brilliant, black-hearted character study that’s only improved in its second four-episode run, which premieres tonight on Ovation. … Read More

Fuck California, You Made Me Boring: How Don Draper Avoided an American Cliché

California. It has always lingered in the background of Mad Men, the ultimate symbol of rebirth, a place where Don Draper could go when he needed another chance — where he could shed his identity and become another, better man. In this first half of the show’s final season (thank you for forcing that awkward wording, AMC), which concluded on Sunday night, Don tangoed with Los Angeles as a permanent possibility. It glittered in the distance, a city on a hill. He had his chance to take it. But it didn’t quite happen. Why was that, and what does it mean? … Read More

‘Mad Men’ Season 7 Episode 6 Recap: “The Strategy”

What makes up a family? Is it a sense of longing, of reaching for something you can’t have, a legal bond, the happenstance of blood? The bonds fray this week, elegantly, as we watch the Mad Men definition of family (spoiler: it’s the workplace, of course). But the workplace is a choice that leaves a… Read More

‘Mad Men’ Season 7 Episode 5 Recap: “The Runaways”

Forgive me for sounding ancient, but maybe this season of Mad Men is a carousel of sorts? I’m not sure, really, but I feel like we keep circling around issue after issue, coming back to characters and dramas that feel sort of familiar, repetitive, where the goal posts have been moved just one inch. Which is to say, I had been convinced that after the sex and breakup of “Field Trip,” that Don and Megan were done, finito, never to talk again. But they do, and there’s a reason: Don’s “niece,” Stephanie Draper calls. … Read More

‘Mad Men’ Season 7 Episode 4 Recap: “The Monolith”

Hey fans of Angry Males! Do you like metaphors? Because this episode was chock-a-block full of them. It was called “The Monolith,” and the central monolith was Sterling Cooper & Partners’ brand spanking new 1969 computer, installed to make Harry happy, taking over the creatives’ “lunchroom.” Is the monolith the moon, hanging over this (late… Read More
