Storyline

Several members of the creative team - including Smitty, Peggy Olson and Paul Crane - are at work on a Saturday trying to come up with new slogans for their Baccardi campaign. It's rough going however and fresh ideas are rare. Paul contacts an old university friend and they smoke marijuana in his office. Once again Peggy surprises all of them and shows that she is as adventurous as they are. The rest of the staff are at Roger Sterling's lavish party. While the surroundings are sumptuous, a few of the guests are uncomfortable with Roger's singing performance. Betty Draper has an interesting encounter while Jane Sterling gets pie-eyed. Joan Holloway hosts a dinner party for husband Greg's boss and a colleague. She reveals her own hidden musical talents. Betty's father claims that someone stole $5 from his money clip, but no one takes him too seriously. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The bizarre show that Roger and Jane put on is a "blackface" number. Blackface, in which a white (or, much more rarely, a black) performer would paint his or her face black and sing and dance in a way that was stereotypically (though rarely correctly) associated with African Americans, was a hugely popular performance style during the nineteenth century and into the first part of the twentieth. But during the time this episode is set (1963), it was starting to fall out of fashion somewhat, especially as awareness of racial inequalities and stereotypes rose among white Americans. See more »

Goofs

While Roger is singing to Jane at their party, the drummer of the backup band can be seen in the background playing a K Custom crash cymbal, though the K Custom line of cymbal wouldn't be introduced until 1981. See more »

Quotes

Paul Kinsey: "This is the way the world ends, this is the way the world ends, this is the way the world ends - not with a bang, but a whimper."
Smitty: We get it, you're educated.

Mad Men

Mad Men; one of the most acclaimed series by critics, loved by the fans and buzzed at the award shows, is a character driven series created by Matthew Weiner depicting the inner world of an ad agencies set in '60s in New York. The writing is sharp, elaborative, adaptive and exquisite that keeps the audience tangled in its not-so-likable and faulty world on the edge of their seat.

It is rich on technical aspects like projecting the chemistry among the characters, stunning cinematography, beautiful camera work, references mentioned in the conversations and the classic tone of the series that makes it supremely watchable.

The primary reason why the series stands alone is not only its nature to work in a metaphorical way but to weave out a poem from the sequence, is the genuine soul behind it that attains a certain closure in each episode. The performance objective is score majestically by the cast especially by the protagonist Jon Hamm who is supported convincingly by the cast like Elisabeth Moss, Vincent Kartheiser, January Jones and John Slattery.

The practical conversations, the whistle-blowing dialogues, three-dimensional characters, excellent execution, finely detailed set-pieces, alluring costume design are the high points of the series that helps it enter the major league.

Season 03

The third act of the series has a common theme of confrontation whether then it be of truth, sins, issues that helps each character swallow its own existence and accept it along with some smart business tactics and intense dramatic morale conflicts that offers a poignant yet cathartic experience.

My Old Kentucky Home

Completing an unexpected and thrilling arc on Moss' character, the series regains its pulsing and tensed energy on the screen whilst Hamm's character brews onto a more stronger one in front of his old friend Slattery.
