If you haven't watched this show, you have no choice. You must. It's that good. It creates a perfectly realized world, Madison Avenue at the end of the 1950s (and early 60s), and fills it with captivating characters, richly nuanced performances, impeccable writing and unbelievable production design. If you're not yet on the bandwagon, you have options to catch up:
- Go buy it at iTunes.
- AMC will be running a marathon of Season 1 on the Sunday a week before the premier of Season 2.
- You can buy the first season on DVD, along with a limited edition Zippo lighter, just like yours truly did for his birthday:
Tell me that's not the most awesome DVD set you've ever seen?
Don't just take my word for it. (But really. Why the fuck wouldn't you?) There's more on Mad Men here. And here. And here. And here.
