"Time Zones" could well be one of those "Mad Men" episodes that drives people to complain that nothing happens, but I actually think that the viewers who regularly lobbed that complaint at this drama are gone by now.

We’re down to the core fans now, those who accept that what “happens” on this show has a particular flavor, mood and style. Those “happenings” can consist of a significant look, a weighted silence or a crushing realization. Things often “happen” when the camera is focused on the back of a character’s head. This is a show that loves ambiguities, digressions and oblique angles. Not many shows could pull that off, but “Mad Men” has the kind of cast that makes watching people think and react a real pleasure most of the time.
