When It Comes Down To It, Who's Really Signing That Contract Anyway?
A whole crapload of interesting stuff happened on Mad Men last night (and as you can see, it's having an effect on my eloquence), but nothing else that happened (and I mean NOTHING, you Peggy-Duck enthusiasts) beats what went down in the penultimate scene of the episode, when...
SPOLIER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT!
... Bert Cooper laid the ever loving *smack* down and played a card he'd been holding onto for three years.
I love TV moments like that. The old coot's not so doddering after all, is he?
His eyes did something I've only seen another actor do once. In the God-awful campery that is The Devil's Advocate, Al Pacino looks at Keanu Reeves' mother and asks her if it's her first time in New York. As he does so, his eyes lean down and lick that poor old woman's soul. Robert Morse showed off the same move tonight, but with his littel pointy beard, it's sure to have tickled extra fierce.
All for now.
