Here are some of the best and worst moments from the 2014 run of 'Mad Men'
Low: Betty mean-girls Bobby
Episode: “Field Trip”
Why it was a low: It’s another entry for Betty Draper Francis as world’s worst mother as she takes Bobby to the woodshed for trading her sandwich for some gumdrops on a school field trip. Betty only goes on the field trip, much to the scampering delight of Bobby, to convince herself that she’s actually a good mother, but all she really proves is that she is even more immature than Bobby. It’s to January Jones’ and Mason Vale Cotton’s credit that after being shunted off to the suburbs and only seen occasionally, they are able to give their scenes such poignancy, as we ache for little Bobby.
