  • Mixed Marriage: Paul's black girlfriend, whom he was just using to show off how subversive he is.
    • In "Hands and Knees", it's revealed that Lane Pryce has been dating a black girl from the Playboy Club. Surprisingly enough, they seem to be very fond of each other.

The trope is now known as Maligned Mixed Marriage. Was the couple's interrracial relationship looked down upon in-universe?

Is Roger a Ted Baxter? He's pretty arrogant, born into his position, his relationship with Lucky Strike appears to be his only asset to the company, and his secret autobiography doesn't help.

I think I'd concur. He does have an overinflated opinion of himself and his position in the company. Yes, his name's on the door, but he inherited it. Plus, he gets hit with Break the Haughty, which tends to happen to a Ted Baxter.

Does "All Women Are Prudes" really fit? The description admits that it doesn't fit Joan or Betty, but I would also argue that it doesn't really fit Peggy, even in the first season.

Yeah, I'm going to remove that. Peggy goes on the pill in the pilot, and I'm pretty sure the majority of women with speaking roles sleep with Don at some point.

Will a character sheet be made for Mad Men soon?

If you think the show needs one, feel free to make one yourself.

Yeah, I should huh? It'll give me a good excuse to go back and re-watch the 3 seasons.

Yeah, this is the sort of show that really needs a character sheet just to keep track of all the main characters. It'd probably help clean up the main page a bit too, which is getting kind of trope overdosed.
