mad men: 'my old kentucky home'

Another Sunday, another episode of GOOD tv.  Tonight's installment:

Season 3 Episode 3: My Old Kentucky Home
The writers fight off boredom when they are forced to work after hours. Roger hosts a party while Joan and Greg host a party of their own. Sally has a run in with Grandpa.

I may have to hide my remote because I have a feeling I'm going to want to throw it at the tv at Greg, the rapist.

You know the drill, grab your cocktail and come in and chat about Don and the rest of the gang at Sterling Cooper.

I like the sly running commentary about pedigree running through this episode. Besides Connie (Sepinwall's readers have deduced that that's Conrad Hilton) pointing out to Don that he's come a long way from parking cars at a roadhouse, there's ... well, almost everything that comes out of Paul's mouth in this episode.

"Don’t I seem as important as Cosgrove? I mean, Campbell makes sense. To the manor born." Then, when his "drug pusher" classmate ("Jeffrey Graves. Princeton '55.") arrives, it's all very Andy Bernard. Especially when he was all pistols-at-10-paces at the suggestion that he was kicked out of the TigerTones for being too ... tall. :-)

Sure Paul, you're Ivy League ("We got it. You're educated."), but you've apparently leaned too heavily on that, expecting that line on your resume to do all the work. If this is a race, you're even with the graduate of Miss Deaver's Secretarial School.

Smitty, who seems to realize it's actually about talent, was great in this episode.

Jeffrey: You're looking at the two great coxmen of Princeton '55.
Smitty: Oh, the times you must have had. (looks at his bag) Can we buy some dope?
