So, I've been hearing a lot about 'Mad Men' but I've never heard of it until about two weeks ago. What's the skinny on this one?
very addicting show, but it's hard to explain why. it's more slow than fast-paced, but every episode leaves you wanting more and you can't explain it.
it's about a bunch of hotshot AD men in new york placed in the 60's. they drink, smoke, cheat on their wives ... they get a lot of things they want. they also mix in current events (kennedy vs. nixon, the bomb scare, etc).
the acting is incredible and the sales pitches they make are pretty interesting. it's in it's third season right now and just to prove how good of a show it is - it's won 2 emmy's in its first 2 seasons and i'm sure they'll win another this year. it's that good.
