2. “Far Away Places” on “Mad Men”
Roger Sterling was the last “Mad Men” character I expected to try LSD. But in this episode, his drug experimentation with his wife, Jane, is natural, hallucinatory, and, ultimately, revelatory. He and Jane reach a breakthrough in their understanding and break up; likewise, Don and Megan have a momentous blowup amid the orange nightmare that is Howard Johnson’s and orange sherbet, and Peggy and her relationship with her job achieves a new, lonely level. The three story lines intertwine in and out of order, infusing what is a relatively ordinary day with import.
