Episode: "Tea Leaves" (Season 5, episode 3)
AKA: "The One That Introduced Fat Betty"
Poor Jon Hamm. After four years of playing Don Draper, he finally earned a shot to get behind the camera and direct an episode of "Mad Men," just as co-star John Slattery had done so well before him. I can only imagine Hamm's reaction to getting the script to "Tea Leaves": Wait, so we're dealing with January Jones' pregnancy just by making Betty fat? And it's mainly an episode about how much Betty hates being fat? And then Don and Harry go to White Castle? Can I pass on this one and take my turn in an episode where Don gives a big speech in a client meeting?
