Back and Forth: Mad Men Roundtable, “Far Away Places” (with Cory Barker and Andy Daglas)

Every so often Mad Men likes to throw out convention and see just what it can do in the hour-long drama format, and last Sunday’s episode “Far Away Places ” was this season’s first full-bore experimental episode – in addition to being one of the show’s best installments yet. With three stories that take its characters to deeper and darker places it’s an episode that similarly demands three reviewers; which coincidentally, the Barker Chappell Daglas reviewing agency is able to provide. Cory Barker of TV Surveillance, Andy Daglas of The Vast Wasteland and myself are here to be your guides on this trip Mad Men takes us with its sixth episode.

This week, A Helpless Compiler will serve as your safe location for the roundtable on “Far Away Places.” Let the sugar cube melt on your tongue, chase it with some orange sherbet, cue up Pet Sounds to be perfectly in sync with The Naked Prey, and let’s begin.
