SoHo Highlight: Mad Men (Sky 10, 8.30, 5.1) Megan convinces Don that she should give up her job at the firm so that she can pursue a career on Broadway, while Peter has a fling with an acquaintance’s wife. “There might be better Mad Men episodes to come, but at this point I’d say Lady Lazarus is the episode Matt Weiner should win an Emmy for writing,” said The Hollywood Reporter. “He’s truly in command here and he’s touching on so many longtime Mad Men truisms – including the main one, existentialism – that he makes it look effortless.” The episode’s also notable for its use of Beatles music. According to the New York Times, “In most cases, Mad Men is bound by the history of the era in which it takes place. But on Sunday night, a new episode of that 1960s period drama that concluded with the Beatles song ‘Tomorrow Never Knows’ appears to have made some history of its own, marking a rare instance in which a song written and recorded by that band has been licensed for use on a television series.” ✮✮✮✮✮
