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.

Hey, I'm finally here. iTunes in its infinite wisdom withheld the download until this morning. :-P Although they emailed the availability reminder for this episode last Tuesday. For the win, iTunes, for the win.


Lookit who can dance! And seemed to be having a darn good time, too! :-) I wasn't getting the usual Petulant Pete vibe this episode, he seemed to be letting a lot more roll over him, and wasn't trying to ingratiate himself quite so much.

Also, Dope Boy was pulling quite the Tom Cruise vibe there, did anyone else get that? It was so obvious to me as to be weird and anachronistic.

Peggy getting baked was awesome. My favorite part was at the end, after she tried to convince her secretary that really, she had it *all* under control---and she was doing a great job of it, until she slowly turned to survey her domain, revealing the mussed side of her hair. I laughed out loud.

That final shot of Don going to Betty was gorgeous, and so long. It just kept going and going.

I was totally expecting Grandpa to be much harder on Sally. It was interesting that he wasn't. It seemed that he actually put some thought into how he handled the situation.

mary, I'm with you on Betty and her parenting. How classic was the scene where Sally zips up the dress? Glamorous mom, going out. It seems to me to be a bit of a holdover in how she was probably raised - mom is somewhat hands-off, and the maid/nanny raises the kids. The only difference is, this is a new generation, and Betty is doing a lot more of the direct work than her mother likely did. But the only 'mother' attitude she knows is the hands-off variety.

Although (and I can't remember where I got the first glimmer of this idea, it's not mine), Sally is what, ten? And this is 1963, right? She's right on track to have a high old time in the Summer of Love.
