I'm enjoying American Horror Story: Freak Show, but the episode I watched the other night had a jarring anachronism.
The story line called for a trick-or-treat neighborhood street scene in West Palm Beach, Fla., in 1952.
Perhaps the writers are too young to remember what Halloween was like in that era . . .
The show had the kids out trick-or-treating during daylight hours, and their mothers were accompanying them.
I don't know about you, but even as late as the 1970s in my hometown in Wisconsin, trick-or-treating was done at night, without parents.
This never would have happened on Mad Men.
