Mad About It

I have found a new Love!

Sorry Hubbs but that's the way it is and there is nothing you can say or do that will change it.

About a month ago I was channel surfing (yes even I do this) between commercials on a Sunday night at 10:00 pm and I stumbled across this show that once I started watching I just couldn't stop. I have become addicted to it and now every Sunday night at 10:00, there I am, glued to AMC watching this show!

It is called MAD MEN and is set in the 1960's. It is about a bunch of advertising executives (mostly men and 1 woman) who sit around and smoke and drink all day and then sleep around the rest of the time. It is fascinating to see them come to work and the first thing they do is light up a cigarette and then they pour a drink. Who drinks alcohol at 9:00 in the morning???

They have these perfect little secretaries that are attuned to their every need- which is laughable nowadays. They greet the bosses with, Good Morning Mr Draper, can I get you some coffee? as she is taking his briefcase and hat. Give me a break!!!!

Of course the good little wives are home taking care of the kids and having Junior League meetings (or so the husbands think). They are really sneaking around having affairs or wishing they were but not quite sure how to go about it.

Everyone is sleeping around with someone and back stabbing the person they are working with to get ahead. All the while smoking a cigarette! I have never seen so much smoking in one show as I have in this one!

I do not know what the pull is of this show but week after week I find myself tuning in to watch. To see what is happening in the world of advertising and if Don is still cheating on Betty or if she finally decided to sleep with Henry?

Tune in some Sunday night and see if you don't find it just as fascinating as I do.

I recently discovered this show. I LOVE IT. #2 priority on my DVR list after Glee. I can't miss it. It is so awesome. Good find.

I have heard of this show! I hear the fashion is just fabulous. I might look it up online and see if I can watch some old episodes to get caught up.

Dang, no cable.
Sounds like just the kind of thing that would suck me in.
