Mad Men: Dandy Don


AMC lets you create "yourself" in a Mad Men scenario. This is "me" and Don - heh.

AMC lets you create “yourself” in a Mad Men scenario. This is “me” and Don – heh.

“Sometimes, you gotta dance with the one that brung ya.” And sometimes you gotta do the Lambada with your neighbor’s wife.

The haunted world of Don Draper is heating up in season six of Mad Men. He’s become so good at telling and living lies, that as the war explodes on the airwaves, there is the impending sense that Dandy Don’s life is about to explode too.

In last night’s episode, The Collaborators, Don continues to be the ultimate “Yes Man” with his wife. When Megan asks if he would like to have children, he says sure, whatever she wants, which is the last thing he wants.

Don no longer cares enough about Megan to disagree, argue, or fight with her, which we all know is an integral part of a normal relationship (hey now). It’s easier for Don to just smile vacuously and nod like a bobblehead doll.

And Pistol Pete is back, mimicking Don by sleeping with his neighbor too, only in typical Pete form, messing things up by choosing a childlike partner. Best line of the episode: “I really have to get back. Can you move it along a little?”

So here we are, everyone is prostituting him or herself in various ways, shapes and forms, be it physically or professionally (WTG Peggy).

The train wreck is coming. And I can’t look away.

“I’m just a gigolo and everywhere I go
People know the part I’m playing
Paid for every dance selling each romance
Ooh, what they’re saying

There would come a day when youth will pass away
What will they say about me
When the end comes I know
They say ‘He was just a gigolo’
Life goes on without me”
