There is a lot of buzz on this show.From what I've seen looks great and the reviews are phenomenal.

At a time when most programs seek to dazzle viewers with big, bold concepts, the pleasures of "Mad Men" refreshingly arise almost wholly from small, impeccably detailed touches. Set in 1960, this breezy serial about Madison Avenue ad men (hence the title) circa 1960 revels in dated images of white-collar workers boozing in the boss' office, harassing female employees, smoking incessantly and openly pondering if there's a Jew anywhere in the building. Created by "The Sopranos" alum Matthew Weiner, it's a rare period drama that niftily injects shades of gray into the black-and-white TV era, warts and all. With his slicked-back hair and neatly pressed suits, Don Draper (Jon Hamm) is the creative mastermind at Sterling Cooper, a bigtime Manhattan ad agency grappling with a variety of challenges, among them how to market cigarettes in light of newfangled health concerns about the product. His surroundings include a suave boss (guest star John Slattery); wide-eyed new secretary Peggy ("The West Wing's" Elisabeth Moss); and an ambitious protege (Vincent Kartheiser) eager to slice into Don's power base. In the premiere, Don not only wrestles with the Lucky Strikes account but with a Jewish department store that has the temerity to desire crossing over and is run by -- gasp -- a woman (Maggie Siff). Peggy, meanwhile, is viewed by the various associates as fresh meat, and receives tips on how to survive as a single gal -- mostly by cozying up to the boys -- from a predatory, curvy co-worker, Joan (Christina Hendricks). For those who have transformed the '50s into a nostalgic Wonderland, "Mad Men" captures just how much things have changed since the morality that governed those days. Beyond blatant anti-Semitism, sexual harassment and the assumption that a woman's place is in the home or sprawled out upon the couch, one staffer clearly appears to be gay and overcompensates by talking about nailing broads more than any of his peers. As a serialized drama, the program's situations aren't especially stirring, even with its solid, perfectly outfitted cast. The sheer atmosphere, however, proves intoxicating -- from a doctor puffing away during a gynecological exam to snippets of Bob Newhart's comedy to the backdrop of the pending Nixon-Kennedy race for the White House (Sterling Cooper is weighing whether to represent Nixon), adding a pre-Camelot significance to the proceedings. Despite its understated approach, however, "Mad Men" actually strikes a profound chord, inasmuch part of today's so-called culture war involves sifting through the tumult of the 1960s, heralded by progressives for the freedoms won but now being decried by conservatives for the standards that were eroded. In that context, the show illustrates that period's own form of excess without wagging fingers, while reminding us that before sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, there was sexual harassment, free-flowing cocktails and bluesy ballads, invariably sung by white guys. It's the kind of subliminal message, actually, that those slicked-back Madison Avenue mavens could surely appreciate.

This was another great idea that Guy came up with and then copied by someone from the boards. Good thing Guy is collecting royalties on these ideas.

btw - Mex was the overall winner of this "idea" in its original format.... although Jeep won all the drinking contests by a large margin.

Have it on DVR. Will watch this weekend and report back.
Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them. But the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

1936, 1937, 1943, 1950, 1952, 1954, 1955, 1997, 1998, 2002, 2008

Saw it. Not bad.

Best show of the summer isn't hard considering the competition is "Who's Now" on ESPN and the Closer.

I'll watch it again if I remember when its on and what channel its on.

No you don't get it. It isn't a business to the true fanbase; Eagles' football is a birthright & a tradition that's shared amongst family & friends & passed down to the next generation...at least it used to be. Im with DH; this team can kiss my ### as long as that sadistic piece of garbage is on the roster. I'm a true fan & I'm not going to check my morals at the door like Lurie & company just did. Disgusting after the way they've preached character for the last decade. I don't care what charades they partake in to try & sandbag the public; the guy is rotten to the core & always has been. It's pretty convenient for him to see the light now that he's lost all his worldly possessions. Sad day to be an Eagles fan.

The next person who mentions a professional football player by anything other than their name, I swear to God, I'm putting you on every gay porn and bondage mailing list I can find.

Mad Men: Smoke Gets In Your Eyes (series premiere)

Posted Jul 20th 2007 8:08AM by Bob Sassone
Filed under: Other Drama Shows, OpEd

(S01E01) I think it's really appropriate that the Emmy Award nominations were announced on the same day this show premiered, because if there's any justice in this TV land, we'll be hearing a lot about Mad Men at this time next year.

The television landscape is filled with a lot of shows that are just the same as other shows on other networks. Even when we say "there's nothing else like this on TV right now," it's usually not true. There's usually something a bit (or a lot) like the show we're talking about. Mad Men is one show we can truly say is rather original. Of course, it's original by being retro. It's New York City, 1960. The world of Madison Avenue advertising men. And it is men, as most of the women are in the secretarial pool or gum chewing telephone operators.

But the women have power too, in ways the men don't see.

The setting is the Sterling Cooper advertising agency. New girl Peggy (Elizabeth Moss, The West Wing) starts the day as Don Draper's (Jon Hamm) new secretary. She's nervous, afraid of the new technology (electric typewriters!), but she also goes to the doctor to get birth control because she knows that sleeping her way to the top might be part of the job description. The other girls pretty much confirm that.

Draper is having trouble coming up with a new ad campaign for Lucky Strikes because medical professionals and Reader's Digest have begun examining the health effects of smoking. How can he come up with an ad slogan that will be successful in such a changing world? But Draper (Hamm, in a great performance that should make him a star) is actually the one who has the shades of a conscience (more than others anyway - all the other guys are drinking and cheating and pretty much those ##### guys you and I know), even when he's trying to sell us cigarettes. He doesn't want anything to do with Peggy, even though she comes on to him, and he even apologizes to the female head of a company, a woman he insulted in a meeting. He knows the world is changing, and he's trying to adapt.

There are a couple of questions I have about the plot developments. Would Jews really be talked about that way in the business world of 1960 New York City?

This is the best new show of the year, and I'm just as surprised as you are that 1.) it's a summer show, and 2.) it's on AMC. But there is something so glorious and meaty about this show. It's for adults, and not in the same way that, say, Deadwood is for adults. This is glossy, old-fashioned entertainment, a show more about characters and social mores and the way the 1950s became the 1960s. You have to pay attention. And that worries me a bit. I can imagine people tuning into this, not knowing what to think, and finding it "slow going." There's nothing slam-bang about this show. It's all about the acting and the writing and the mood and the style and the look and feel of 1960 NYC.

Oh, the look. Is it possible to have an orgasm for the eyes? This show gets everything so beautifully right. The way everyone is smoking, the cut of the suits, the haircuts, the way the characters talk, the cars, the dresses. Even small touches, like clocks on a wall or curtains in a office and the new electric typewriters the girls use, it's all done so well that the sets are characters themselves (and not in that obviously kitschy way that modern movies usually depict the late 50s/early 60s - this is closer to L.A. Confidential than Happy Days). This isn't is a show you just "watch every week," it's a world you want to live in.

The cast is uniformly great, from Hamm to boss John Slattery (Desperate Housewives, Ed) to new secretary Moss to creepy suckup Pete (Vincent Kartheiser), who is getting married but still wants to dip his pen in company ink. This is juicy, intelligent soap opera stuff, and I mean that in the best way possible.

I usually hate saying that at a TV show is "just like a movie," because I think that it demeans TV a bit, as if TV is the younger brother who has to prove himself and "get better." But Mad Men is like a movie in the sense that it's just really well shot, like some glorious Technicolor flick of the 1950s, filling the screen with detail and life, and a respect for the audience you don't usually see on TV.

Anyway, check it out, because...well, as I said, there's nothing else like it on

television.

Loved the first episode. What a simple time it was, which is both good and bad, but I'm thinking I was born about 30 years too late.

Reminded me a bit of the feel of 7 Year Itch, one of my favorite movies, which would make some sense since that was NYC in 1954, just 6 years prior to the setting of Mad Men.

Looking forward to episode 2, and encourage others to give this thing a shot.

I really like it too. Given that it's from one of the Soprano's producers, it's clear they're modeling Don after Tony Soprano. You start to like the guy, then he does something really ####ty-usually to his wife.

Gets better and better each week.
Really getting deep into the characters now.

I like when the switchboard op tells the gay guy that she works in a closet all day and it's nice to get out.
Don Draper is seriously troubled. Wonder where that'll go.
And I like the Pete/Peggy storyline "I don't like you like this"
Hopefully it gets renewed.

Wonder where that'll go.And I like the Pete/Peggy storyline "I don't like you like this"Hopefully it gets renewed.

:confused: The show was kind of a slow build, but now I'm hooked. And man did they drink and smoke a lot back then. :rolleyes:

A couple of episodes early on nearly lost me, but I'm glad I stuck with it.Once Draper's brother showed up it started to get good with the development of Draper and his past.I loved when the hippy told him he can't go out there."You can't...I can"And Peggy saying that they all work so hard, they could use a break. Work hard!?! All they do is sit around drinking and smoking.Great writing.

This is, by far, the best show on TV right now.

Why? Because I'm an idiot on a messageboard?

I recently got into this after AMC put all of the episodes OnDemand. As many have said it is slow to build but it's worth sticking with. The writing is great and the production value of the show is really high. Really takes you back to a different time.

Plus I can't stop looking at the redhead, the Menkin's chick and Don's wife. Something for everyone.

It's a very good show for sure, would recommend it.

It's no Prison Break though. Schofield is the man :shrug:

Great news! If you haven't watched this show, well, then you're probably not reading this thread, but dammit you should be watching!

Who Cares?!?
Despite Obama’s slight edge overall, Romney was seen as better able to handle most issues. The trend was most notable in the CNN poll: he had an 18-point edge among registered voters on the economy (58 percent Romney, 40 percent Obama), a 3-point edge on health care (49 percent Romney, 46 percent Obama), a 7-point edge on taxes (51 percent Romney, 44 percent Obama), and, largest of all, a 23 percent edge on the deficit (59 percent Romney, 36 percent Obama). Obama’s only lead was on foreign policy, where a slim margin of 2 percent of registered voters who watched the debate said he would handle the issue better (49 percent Obama, 47 percent Romney).

:lmao: at your sig

pathetic

I do, friend. This is the best drama on TV right now. It's one of the best shows to come around in years.
