Mad Men - Season Five
Friday night before the start of season 6, Sharon and I finished watching Season 5 of Mad Men. This season takes place between Memorial Day, May 30, 1966 and spring 1967.
The season explores Don Draper's new marriage to Megan. It leads him to ignore his work at the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce advertising agency.
The season touches on race relations and drug use, particularly LSD. There a number of pop culture references, including Star Trek, Dark Shadows, Hare Krishnas and the Rolling Stones.
It also seemed like there were product references, including Heinz, Jaguar, Manischewitz and Mohawk Airlines (which ends up being part of USAir).
