Mad Men

Yeah, this post is late. Mad Men had its season finale a couple of weeks ago. Here's the thing, I have no clue why I love this show. It doesn't have overtly surprising or exciting episodes, it's about a time before I was even born and about a culture I'm not familiar with; rich Madison Avenue ad executives. Yet, I love it.

Maybe it's seeing things at a more simple time, like the movie Revolutionary Road, which was set in the 50's. I was never this huge fan of Happy Days so why do I like this? And yes, I know that Mad Men is set in the 60's, I'm just using a comparison.

This year it's been all about Sally with me. I am loving her role and the stuff that goes on with her. I've also really started liking Peter, who I used to not be able to stand. As much as the Don Draper character is handsome, I abhor his character and how he treats people, mainly women. I've never been all, "I am woman, hear me roar" but the way he treats the female gender is ridiculous. I hear that it was pretty much that way back then for some people.

Anyway, I still can't fathom why this is one of my favorite shows but it is. The picture I included is from season one but I love that picture.
