Season 7.2 of Mad Men is nearly upon us! I’m rewatching Season 7.1, starting with the season premiere, Time Zones.
The first time around, I posted about time as a motif in the episode. There’s a lot of juicy material there. However, I left out a specific reference to time zones; Ken is overworked in part because he has to take calls from “Bob in Detroit” and “Pete in L.A.” every day, each in his own time zone. Ken’s afternoon is eaten up by their perception of morning.
Speaking of perception, Kenny has no depth perception, and despite myself, I laugh every time.
