Default Mad Men (AMC)

http://media.amctv.com/originals/mad...pisode1_1.html

A new drama series on AMC about Madison Avenue execs circa 1960.

The previews looked really interesting, and I caught the first episode last night and was not disappointed. Well acted and written, and if they stay on top of their game the subject matter has a lot of potential.

I wanted to watch it so bad because there are hundreds of posters in Grand Central about it. I just fell asleep so early that I missed it.

It looked good enough for me to DVR it. Haven't watched it yet.
Got the whole series scheduled, actually.

Unlike a lot of OT'ers I was around in the sixties.

Didn't see a thread on it.

WTF?

I went to WTLW you, and can't find my thread?

Edit: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1309149

You're off the hook though, as I couldn't get it to come up on the search even after I entered the exact thread title? I had to dig through my past posts to find it. WTF?!

I searched every way I could think of, and it's like the search is ignoring that thread.

It's a good show, anyway. Last week's seemed a little slow, but that may have been more the mood that I was in than the ep. We haven't watched this week's yet.

I normally dont watch episodic TV, but this show is actually very very good. Caught an episode late last night at the beginning and watched the whole way through while staving off sleep. Might actually Tivo this moving forward.

Bump for season two starting tomorrow night.

It was freaking great all through last season, so, I'm really looking forward to it.

Surprised that they haven't done more promotion though. I hadn't heard anything about it until I happened to catch a single promo on Thursday's Daily Show.

Kind of a strange series really. I mean come on, what actually happens? not one hell of a lot really.

Though i guess i just want to be able to smoke and drink all day while treating women like second class citizens *sigh* that's the life.

Great illustration of the times i reckon.

I'll grant you, it's not a thrill-a-minute action show, that's for sure, but the depth of the characters and the way that they interact with each other is something that just isn't seen on TV these days.

Good writers and the will to put them to use, FTW.
