Paul Kinsey (credit only)


After leaving Mona, Roger asks Jane Siegel to marry him, an offer which she accepts. The divorce looks to be a messy proceeding. At the office, Duck wants to make partner, but Roger, being candid, tells him that his performance to date doesn't warrant such a move. Duck decides he has either to be more aggressive in looking for a better job elsewhere or in finding additional business for Sterling Cooper to warrant the partnership. Still at the office, the creative team is talking about the difficult time Paul seems to be having in Mississippi from what they see on the news, the good time that Don and Pete are probably having in Los Angeles, the Right Guard campaign and Bob Dylan. With the latter, Kurt asks Peggy to Dylan's concert after she expresses interest in his music. Peggy sees this as a date, whereas Kurt sees it purely as friends going out as he assumed she and everyone in the office knew he was gay.

Poor DVD Video Quality - This Episode Only
25 May 2015 | by (Atlanta, GA, USA) – See all my reviews

'The Jet Set' is not one of my favorite 'Mad Men' episodes - it looks a little too much like it was written to take advantage of the ready-made midcentury ambiance of Palm Springs. And a good thing, too, because on this one episode, the video quality on the DVD is very bad, a problem I have verified as being present on three different copies of Disc Four of Season Two. There is horrible "combing" evident from first frame to last on this one episode - as bad as anything I've ever seen on a public-domain, dollar-store DVD of forgotten TV shows of the '50s. The rest of Disc Four's episodes are fully up to the impeccable image quality of the rest of the DVD releases for this series; the problem exists only for this episode.
