Bonus Surprise Spoiler Alert Thursday: Mad Men nostalgia
I’ve been rewatching the first season of Mad Men since it’s on demand, and you know that whole thing with Peggy where it seems really improbable and crazy? I think it makes sense now. She sleeps with Pete on her first day of work, which is also the first day she starts on the pill. You and I both know that it doesn’t work perfectly like that, but the only thing the doctor wants to discuss with her is how she shouldn’t “abuse” it and become a total whore — something that probably gives her even more of the impression that it’s totally bullet-proof, if anything. Throw in the fact that she’s Catholic, and you have a perfect recipe for contraceptive ignorance. There’s still a denial issue, but it’s not completely crazy, like it would be when you’re watching the season for the first time and had forgotten the details of the first episode. In any case, that’s what I think now.
