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.

Oh, I was also going to say, I found it interesting that not only Don, but also Pete seemed to be uncomfortable with the blackface performance. I'm a little uncertain just how that would have been perceived at that point in time - I mean, it's incredibly offensive today, but wasn't that still a somewhat nebulous area then? I'm not sure just how the sense was falling. (I'd probably have to put it up directly against a Civil Rights timeline to check.)

But yeah...Don seems to be somewhat more sensitive than most to levels of offensiveness, injustice, etc, even if he doesn't always act on that sensitivity. But I was kind of surprised at Pete looking uncomfortable as well, given his need for social superiority. Especially when the rest of the crowd appeared indulgent, for the most part. I would have expected him to try to 'fit in' a bit more.
