TV Geek Out 95: Mad Men, "Out of Town"

Mad Men's season three premiere "Out of Town" may have been the series' most action-packed season opener yet: things happened, from its grim flashback revealing the origins of Dick Whitman's first name to the rivalry between Sterling Cooper's new heads of accounts, Pete and Ken. Other things almost happened, like Sal's and Don's interrupted flings. Layers, disguises and uniforms were also major themes of the episode, along with life at the agency under British rule -- and even the new characters' names, John Hooker and Mr. Pryce (played by the amazing Jared Harris), were rife with symbolism. Here's to another season of Mad Men to analyze endlessly! Come do the Pete Campbell dance of glee with us while the TV Geek Out geeks dissect it all here.
