Episode discussion for: 04x05 | The Chrysanthemum and the Sword (Aug 22, 2010)
The second best show ever on TV. (Breaking Bad being the #! )
I think I like this show so much because I remember so much of the era they are in. I was a teen in the late 50's and early 60's but I remember much of what they are referring to.
In any case Don Draper is still cold and so is Betty, his ex-wife, the kids will suffer of course. Looks like 10 year old Sally is already having problems. I wonder if she was sexually abused? If so by whom??
Statistically speaking the most dangerous person to a child is the mother and second most dangerous is a stepparent or the mothers boyfriend.
Roger still hates the Japanese, common in the 1960's.
A great book about advertising in the 1960's is "From Those Wonderful Folks Who Gave You Pearl Harbor" by Jerry Della Femina. Originally published in 1971 it's been reissued.
