Mad about Mad Men
It's been a long time since a show has sucked me in so completely as the critically acclaimed Mad Men—a moody, menacing, smart, pitch-perfect drama set in the facade-filled world of 1960 America within the framework of the advertising business.
It's tough to say what is most alluring about Mad Men. The writing is succulent. The actors are flawless. The production value and photography is incredibly lush, the period costumes and art direction are mouth-watering and the societal details fascinating.
If you've missed episodes and have On Demand on your cable system, you can catch up for free. Bet you can't watch just one.
