But yeah, I like Peggy. A lot.
Also, I think Betty's discontent isn't really "emo" as was said here. She's feeling the effects of 60s social pressure to confirm into a mold that really isn't her. And depression and angst transcend all social and economic classes. She does have real problems... upper class upbringing, trying to do what she's supposed to do, not getting it completely right. Sounds like my life.
Although, her solution to Don Drapers infidelity (to go out and cheat on her husband) wasn't exactly tactful.
I think the three SNL sketches spoofing Mad Men were great, too:
Those are hilarious. Highlights are "She wants a Grasshopper" and "Black people won't show up to your party, that's an example of party humor". Classic...
