My husband and I finally finished watching Season 3 of Mad Men, the highly-acclaimed and award winning AMC show about advertising in the 1960's. I love the visual style of Mad Men (there is nothing like it on TV), from the costumes, to the sets, and of course all the throwbacks to 1960's mentality where business was conducted over cocktails, women washed dishes in dresses and pearls, and men still got away with sexual harassment in the workplace. (Not that I'm condoning any of those things mind you, but as someone from a completely different generation, it is a rare and interesting glimpse into another world). From the intricate office maneuvering at Sterling Cooper, to the drama of the Draper family, Mad Men has quickly become one of my favorite shows on television. Season 4 doesn't start until June, so until then might I suggest a re-run trip down Madison Avenue, New York to find out what you are missing?
