I did a blog post the other day over at popculturedivas about my love for Mad Men. … And my absolute giddiness that the new season is about to start.
It’s one of my and Superman’s very favorite shows.
We love the clothes, the music, the furniture, the homes, the cars, and all the drama that comes from living in an era that was so on the brink of massive change. The show really portrays all those things so well.
My brother-in-law Dave and I usually e-mail back and forth frantically when the season begins – we compare notes and discuss our thoughts of how the characters’ arcs may be changing.
Do you love this show as much as I do?
Until the season begins, you can join me in making Mad Men avatars of yourself at MadMenYourself. I cracked up over mine, above — actually kinda looks like me! You can even create small head-shot ones and use them as your Twitter avatar! Have fun!
In the meantime, drop me a line and tell me if you enjoy this show — and what elements you specifically like? Is it Don Draper’s anti-heroism? Pete’s smarmy ways? Joan’s great clothes and jewelry? Sterling’s awesome suits? Is it Betty’s character arc? Or seeing sexism played out so blatantly in another era? Let me know — I’d love to hear your take!
