I’ll admit, I haven’t been this attached to a television show since Moonlighting was on. I taped every show of Moonlighting and watched them over and over again. I memorized the witty one-liners. I adored the characters.
I have even stronger feelings for the cast of Mad Men. Times have changed, but the habits are basically the same.
I DVR every show. I own seasons 1-4 on DVD. I type my favorite Don Draper one-liners in my notes on my IPhone.
This never happened. It will shock you how much it never happened.
You are the product. You, feeling something. That’s what sells.
Lots of people who haven’t taken LSD already know that, Roger.
I stumbled upon a show on Bravo one late night called Inside the Actor’s Studio and they were interviewing the cast of Mad Men. I have to say I felt like it was meant to be that I turned on my TV at that particular time and it was on that particular channel. I enjoyed the little extras that were revealed in that hour.
There are so many things I love about the show. I love the writing. With so few shows on television that I enjoy, a well-written drama is such a treat. I love the costumes, the realistic touches (all the smoking, no seat belts, tossing trash in the park), I love the bit of history that sparks my interest even further in that era. I love that Peggy has a picture of the president on her wall. How long has it been since anyone admired a president enough to hang a picture of him in their living room? I love that it makes me think.
Did you know there are Mad Men quizzes? I think it’s the only quiz I ever aced.
What do you love about Mad Men?
