I’m just mad about Mad Men…and Mad Men’s mad about me! The boy and I recently got hooked on Season One, and quickly followed it up with a marathon of Season Two and now are happily caught up with the rest of the country!
Of course, the show is much more than a colorful romp into the advertising world of the 1960’s and the issues of parenthood, marriage, public vs. hidden personas, professional inequality and relationships are all extremely current in a way. But on the other hand, I love that this period of history is the setting for such a well executed and enthralling show. I am obsessed with pretty much every character–each has such layers of complexity–it’s really exciting to watch! It really has got under my skin!
