Fortunately, Woodstock is still a long ways off. And the Summer of Love is, too (along with San Francisco), though it's just over a year away in the Mad Men universe. But the rumblings of change -- in this case racial change and generational change -- are getting much louder.
I like to think that a big chunk of Mad Men's narrative is Pete's education in human behavior. He's the Pinocchio of Sterling Cooper -- he was born a wooden doll, and now is still trying to act like a real boy.
Not everyone can stay up late on a Sunday night and watch a television show. Some of us have jobs. Most shows, if you miss them, you can catch up with them somewhere online if your DVR spazzes out. Not Mad Men.
