Everybody's Mad for Mad Men!

Last season I started watching Mad Men early on and hung with it for most of the season. I really enjoyed watching the retro style and mannerisms like the vintage office furniture, three martini lunch, smoking in the office and slapping the secretary on the ass.

But that's all it had for me. All style and no substance. At its heart it is just another hour-long prime time drama/soap opera. Those shows are very popular with many people, but have never been my thing. There's something about that week to week dramatic story line that just doesn't draw me in.

It's not you. It's me.

p.s. Notice the tag below. To me, tv falls under "art".
