Which Jew Will Draper Seduce?
Gaming the upcoming season of ‘Mad Men’
In Season 1, it was department store heiress Rachel Menken Katz. In Season 2 (the season that isn’t very good), it was Bobbie Barrett, the wife and manager of the comedian. And, of course, last season, it was Dr. Faye Miller. It’s a fact: Don Draper, whose creator is one Matthew Weiner, has a thing for Jewish women (and who could blame him!). So which, or which type, will Draper bed this season, which begins Sunday evening on AMC?
