The Orange Couch, Episode 4 of Mad Men: “Mystery Date”

I wasn’t in town to record for this episode of “The Orange Couch”, but I helped write it and find the “Mystery Date” video. Oh, the marvels of digital communication! Like Marc, I’m not too fond of the dream sequence crap. They’ve been escalating the amount of time we spend…
