Mad Men – Zou Bisou Bisou
So, I recently got into the dark, dangerous world that is “Mad Men” and I’m finally on the most current season before the April 7th premiere.
(Side note: I’m using “premiere” because it means “first,” not “premier,” which is usually reserved for the prime minister of a country. It’s a pet peeve of mine when they are used incorrectly and just wanted to air that grievance. Back to the program.)
After the various curves that have been thrown at me during the past weeks of viewing this pretentious then excellent program, I finally hit the episode that everyone and their mother was tweeting about last spring.
And now it all makes sense. I’ve never heard a song entirely in French before or been seduced so successfully by a television character before, but Megan Draper – even though she’s technically French-Canadian, I’ll let it slide – has this mystifying ability to charm an entire room without a damn person understanding her.
I applaud that ability because I am thoroughly jealous of her talent. Damn her for all the right reasons.
And Jane Sterling is the 1960s Queen of Sass.
