I love Mad Men!

Have you seen the new series on AMC called Mad Men? It's on Thursday nights plus a few other times. It's a pretty good show and I love the staging and props. I love the clothing and the house decors.

The Setting: In 1960, advertising agencies were an all-powerful influence on the masses. Personal and professional manipulation and sexual exploits defined the workplace and closed the deals. The high profile Sterling Cooper Advertising Agency created advertising campaigns – from cigarettes to political candidates -- better than anyone. It was a time of great ferment. Women had barely begun to come into their own. Librium and birth control were on the move. Ethics in the workplace, smoke-free environments, sexual harassment and ethnic diversity were workshops of the future.

Read more about it on the website - above. It's pretty cool.
