good morning! over the past few days i’ve been on this huge mad men kick – i finished off the first season on blu-ray over the weekend – and i was bummed to find out the 2nd season wouldn’t be available on DVD until july – i simply couldn’t wait so i took to itunes and started buying episodes for a mere $1.99 – a total bargain if you ask me! i’m about halfway through – i’m hoping to wrap up the 2nd season by saturday (i realized i watch more TV on DVD than i do movies!) thankfully the show is coming back again – they’d be stupid not to make a 3rd season – the show has been winning awards left and right – just this past weekend at the SAG awards the cast picked up the trophy for ‘outstanding performance by an ensemble in a drama series’ – my two favorite characters are ‘betty draper’ (played by january jones) she’s the lonely housewife who’s trying to keep herself from coming unglued at the seams – and ‘joan holloway’ (played by christina hendricks) the oh so cool office manager who keeps the sterling/cooper ad agency running like clockwork (although she’s a tad racist – each character has their flaws) the entire show is so well done – from the acting to the writing – then toss in all the 60’s costumes & settings – it’s definitely a slow burning drama – it took me a few episodes to become hooked – now i’m dying to see what happens! the early sixties was such an interesting time – so very different from now – the way guys treated girls in the office would not last for a second today – it’s almost hard to believe men were able to get away with what they did! if you’re not watching this show – i highly suggest checking it out! popbytes over & out for now…xoxo
PS of course watching hottie jon hamm as ‘don draper’ is also a huge plus – he’s so damn sexy!
