Mad about Mad Men

I've recently started watching the Mad Men tv series (http://www.amctv.com/originals/madmen/), and I must say, I'm hooked! The gorgeous costumes, the brilliant dialogue, the JOHN HAMM! While I'm far-removed from the Cary Grant era, I can only imagine he must've been somewhat like John Hamm's character, Don Draper (hopefully sans misogyny...hopefully). Sally and I are through season one and on to two, which I must say has begun on a gut-wrenching note. This is some deep stuff. I'm enthralled by the culture of the decade and enraptured with the dresses...oh the dresses! I can't wait to see where all these characters go and what they look like getting there! Salvidor, you're fabulous...will you take me shopping? Don, while you're beginning to disappoint, I'm hanging in there with you in hopes of a turnaround. Betty, let's do lunch with our kids. Oh wait, your kids are never around! Peggy, I have no words right now. Just tears for you, sweety. Joan, thank you for your confidence; it's contagious.

Continuing season two this week!


  1. DRAPER!!!!

    Mel, Laura says that the seasons only get more intense from here. I'm not sure I've got it in me! I was exhausted after watching it last week. Maybe we need to cut back to only 2 episodes a week. Give ourselves space to digest all the drama.

  2. Yeah I think that's a good idea. Plus, that'll make it last longer.
