Mad Men, Mad World

There's something about Mad Men on AMC. I can't stop watching it.

It's not like it is any crazy, action-filled show of madness and intensity. I don't know if it is the writing or the actors. Is the story that good? Are they selling it that well? Strange because it often feels slow moving and boring. Then they just broadside you or something and I'm dragged back in. Can't... stop... it.

Maybe it is because it is about a time that I never knew - and while not necessarily "based on a true story" ... I feel that there is a certain truth to it all. I think that helps. Of course I don't know if people were REALLY like that in that era, but it is plausible. And that's enough.

Season 3 just ended and I CANNOT wait until season 4. This is the kind of show that I buy on disc (BluRay in this case). I have season 1 and need to pick up season 2 when I get a chance. It is fantastic.

If you haven't been watching this show, that's sad. Hit up iTunes and see if you can start from the beginning. Like I said though, it may feel slow - so be patient. Give it some time and give yourself a chance to get into it.
