If You’re Not Watching, You Should Be

You just saw my previous post on Project Runway, proving that I’m watching way more TV than I have the opportunity to blog about. But I have to say one of the coooolest shows on TV is Mad Men. It comes on AMC, and has gotten all types of award nominations. One of the coolest things about the show is the vibe, they get all dressed up and do everything in suits and hats and poodleskirts and shift dresses. It’s also fun to see how things have changed since the ’60s. The phones are actually hooked to the wall and ring, there are no cell phones, voice mail or call waiting. They even use typewriters. The biggest blast from the past is that it is pre-civil rights movement, and pre-women’s movement. So the maids are African American, the elevator operator is African American and they call their secretaries “girls”. And they smoke like chimneys! Here’s a clip just in case you aren’t watching.
