mad men tv guide

“Peggy and Don are opposites, and they’re soulmates; you can’t really understand one without the other. The show’s opening credits show us the Saul Bass-like silhouette of a man who looks a lot like Don falling from an office tower. But if his descent is half the story of Mad Men, Peggy’s ascent is the other half. Her elevator is going up, his is going down, yet they’re more alike than anyone on the show, creatively driven, stubborn, secretive. They’re the Janus face of Mad Men, he looking toward his past, she toward our future.” -James Poniewozik, TIME Magazine
