Rare Air Disaster
25 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Air disaster's seemed rarer in the 1960's. While they still happened, they just did not seem to happen very often. This is the era before a lot of the hi-jacking would occur in the later 1960's.

Pete Campbell finds out his dad died in an airline crash. This while the ad agency is trying to land the airline he died on.

In the meantime, Peggy has some strange encounters with the priest at her families church. It seems the priest is trying to get Peggy to confess her sins he has found out about after her sister tells him about them in a confession. The priest is not using his information correctly since all confessions are supposed to be confidential.

I am glad this series did not sink to what was really happening a lot with Priests in the 1960's during this era, their molesting of boys. Still, using this moral play with the Priest irritating Peggy is one of the weaker story lines of this series.

At least Peggy is helping with the CYO dance promotions which is what the priest is after along with her confession. Still, there is something creepy about this priest.
