I may also be partial because she quotes Emily Post in the episode in which she throws a dinner party for her husband and his hospital supervisors. She's great because she is intelligent, hardworking, and authentically beautiful.
I was so anxious after the end of the last season and certainly could not wait until this season started. But holy moly am I ever irked by so many characters all of a sudden! I always knew Betty was a bit of a demanding princess, but she has really disappointed me this season. Sally has become a very obnoxious child. And Don is taking out his personal frustrations on everyone else (poor Peggy!). I know these are only television characters, but some of them really need a stern talking to! Is anyone else just as frustrated?
And time for another shameless Emily Post plug: In time for the Mad Men Season 4 premier this July, The Emily Post Institute created a Recipe for a Mad Men Viewing Party. You can find it here : http://emilypost.com/social-life/entertaining-at-home/474-recipe-for-a-mad-men-viewing-party-courtesy-of-emily-post . If you're looking to throw a Mad Men-esque dinner party (Emily Post approved, of course) this will tell you how to celebrate in style. Perhaps you can throw a party for the Season 4 finale, or even for the Season 5 premiere ( I really hope Mad Men gets picked up for another season!).
