TV Geek Out 110: Mad Men, "The Gypsy and the Hobo"

Who would have thought that the episode of Mad Men where Betty finally confronts Don about his past would have been a superior episode even without their epic face-off? But that’s what happened with "The Gypsy and the Hobo," thanks to an outstanding storyline for Roger Sterling that involved a drunken dinner with an old flame, as well as an exquisitely written phone conversation between him and Joan. And that’s not even taking into consideration Joan’s discovery that she’ll soon be a war bride! Listen in as TV Geek Out geeks Perry, Heather, and Dana heap praise on John Slattery, admire Joan’s ability to club her husband with a vase like he was a baby seal, and appreciate the magnificent subtlety of Jon Hamm. Check it all out here.
