Last night, ‘Mad Men’ did a special musical episode without announcing it as such. Sneaky! We had Roger Sterling on his knees in blackface, crooning “My Old Kentucky Home” (also the episode’s title) to his new wife/Joker card enthusiast Jane. Paul Kinsey returned to his Princeton Tigertones roots in a duet that rivaled Andy Bernard’s “Here Comes Treble” (thanks to reader Laura for pointing that out). Pete and Trudie Campbell dazzled themselves and a small audience with a Charleston routine they’d clearly been rehearsing for weeks. And with her sweetly cooed “C’est Magnifique,” Joan revived a long-gestating accordion fetish cable viewers never knew they had. If Peggy hadn’t been too lazy to stand up and procure killer munchies, I’d have expected her to launch into “The Brownie Song” from Reefer Madness. Vote below, and don’t miss Karen Valby’s in-depth Mad Men TV Watch for “My Old Kentucky Home.”

Episode Recaps

Thanks to costume designer Janie Bryant , Hamm's '60s ad man single-handedly revived an interest in the classic two-button suit.
