This Week in Mad Men: Season 5 Premiere (A Little Kiss)

TIME JUMP We left the characters in October of ’65 and rejoin them just after Memorial Day weekend, 1966, about 7 months later. Betty was totally absent; we see the outside of her new home and that’s it. (Echoes of the pilot, in which Betty also wasn’t featured.) Does this feel a bit like a reboot? A lot of the big concerns of last season – Don’s relationship with Dr. Miller, Betty’s crumbling marriage, the potential for SCDP to go under entirely – are no longer a pressing concern. Now we’re exploring new relationships in a new era. BIG THEME: WE’VE SHIFTED FROM ’50s TO ’60s MODE Evident in everything from the clothes (much more mod, especially now that the younger Megan is a main character) to the musical references to the cultural references. Pete’s new anti-smoking shift and exclamation of “no more drinks!” Roger now completely out of place, but refusing to leave. Hints of civil rights playing a larger role this season. (Perhaps with no Carla on the show, this is Weiner’s way of introducing a new black character?) THE SURPRISE PARTY Ken goes to “smoke some tea” on the terrace with the band. Reintroduction again of pot as demonstrative of characters exploring outside their comfort zone. Ken, the eternal optimist, isn’t threatened. (Implication that the whole party may have got stoned, in Slate Magazine’s blog post. Leading to Harry’s paranoia, Peggy’s loose tongue, etc. Thoughts?) Megan gives “her own present” to Don: a rendition of Zou Bizou Bizou. The song was

    i don’t understand why this comment “has received too many negative votes.” is everyone unaware that yes, Peggy had an abortion. there is nothing inappropriate or offensive about this comment, people.

    Just because Joan used race bating to screw with her X’s girlfriend doesn’t mean she doesn’t like black people. It means she’s a bitch to her x boyfriends new girlfriends.

    Closing song “theory”: singer for both songs was white British “soul singer” Dusty Springfield. My take: with the negro protest group outside the SCDP lobby doors and the partners scrambling, Layne Price took the lead on the decision to actually hire one of them. The choice of a British singer was part of the symbolism: Layne’s own un-bias, and a thank you to ex-girl Toni Charles, maybe? Don’t forget Mr. Polito’s pocket stuffing reward thank you to Layne, “this is the way we do things here.”
