I'm not familiar enough with episode titles to have an opinion on this. I gather from the lack of response to this thread that neither do many of the show's most avid supporters here.


Yeah, I know just about every episode and title too...I just hadn't had time to put together a list.

1. Shut the Door. Have a Seat.
2. The Suitcase
3. Guy Walks Into an Advertising Agency
4. My Old Kentucky Home
5. The Other Woman
6. The Gypsy and the Hobo
7. The Wheel
8. The Beautiful Girls
9. Smoke Gets In Your Eyes
10. Mystery Date

I wanted to get one of those later episodes, Time and Life or Lost Horizon, on the list. Maybe in a while they will move on there, but they are still too raw for me :)

I easily know episode titles of that show like the back of my hand. However, it's really too soon for me to deep-dive into Mad Men. In my mind, it just ended and we covered that last season pretty exhaustively on this board already. I'm not quite ready for a retrospective just yet.

Yes, it's very difficult. The only placements I was sure about were 1 and 2, as The Suitcase and Shut the Door, Have a Seat are complete masterpieces of television. But, beyond that, there are so many wonderful, exciting episodes of television in this show.
