A Gentleman’s Bar.

Pete and I finished the last new episode of Mad Men last night.

Concluding our March MadMen-ess.

We watched our first episode ever February 28. That would be 65 episodes in about 28 days? We are living in a mad, mad world over here. I am completely obsessed.ustv-mad-men-season-6-portraits-1

For me, it is everything. I have never been a huge fan of mid-century modern, but I could live in any of the sets gladly. I appreciate the details- like that the characters repeat their outfits often. I enjoy that it is sexy but I don’t feel like I am watching porn. I am not sure when I became such an old prude, but it is true. I love the characters, they are all so flawed but so well developed. There isn’t one person on there that I loathe to see upon my screen.

Except for maybe January Jones.

What an wholly unlikeable woman.

And Pete and I can both agree equally on Joan and Don. don-joan

Now what are we going to do going through withdrawals waiting for the show to start again next week?

I mean, besides going back and watching all of the behind the scenes episodes.

    I don’t understand how you don’t loathe Pete.

    Ok, I officially think I am the last person in America who has not watched Mad Men. I tried the pilot a few times, but found it painfully slow. You have inspired me to try again though, I do love some mid-century modern so that might just be motivation enough…and to know what everyone else is talking about. xo

    Some suggestions for your future television viewing… I just watched all of Breaking Bad on netflix…Excellent. I’ve also watched Damages…Excellent. The Wire, The Tudors and Game of Thrones were also excellent. The characters will stay with you forever.
