Goofs

Secretary shown using an IBM Selectric II typewriter. The Selectric II was introduced in 1971. The show is set in 1960. (In a commentary on the Season One DVD, the show's creator notes that while he is aware of the anachronism and usually quite particular about being period-correct, the typewriter models of the period posed many technical problems for filming, not the least of which was the noise created.)

That weird, orchestral music toward the end
22 October 2013 | by (Westminster, CA, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I have watched this series from start (this episode) till the end of season 5. I'm waiting with bated breath to watch season 6. But starting the series again for like the third time, and just having seen this first episode again, I'm going to claim said episode as my favorite, at least so far. Being the episode that introduced SO many important characters to the show, this just crackled. Loved everyone, even Peter Campbell. But, right around 45 minites in, with the episode timing in at 47 minites +, there's this orchestral music that starts to play, that is not only beautiful, but seems to go on and on in violin, "swirls" if you will. Those sounds totally got me, if the episode I just witnessed wasn't enough already. So far, my favorite episode!
