Great New Series: Mad Men

I stumbled across the new AMC series Mad Men last night and was really taken in. Set in a 1960 advertising agency, the series follows the office politics and love life of a small set of ad executives and their secretaries.

The settings are great, really bringing to life the offices, bars and attire of 1960. It is interesting watching how it portrays business back then, when men were men and women were, at best, secretaries looking for husbands. The funny parts are seeing what was acceptable in an Manhattan ad agency back then - everything from chain smoking to pouring yourself a drink at 11am out of your office bar.

The first episode is running a few more times this week and I recommend catching it to see how you like it.
