    Mad Men

    Is anyone else on this site addicted to this show? I've been watching since its inception. FYI...the actress that plays Betty Draper is from Sioux Falls, SD.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Re: Mad Men

    I've had this at the top of our Netflix queue for about three months, but it keeps getting pushed down - a ton of people must be watching it. I refuse to start in the middle, so I keep hoping that the DVD's free up - it looks just awesome.

    I keep trying to get into it. I didnt find it awful, but its been a struggle to keep my attention. I fear I suffer from not seeing the first season.

    I've been watching it from its inception as well. Did not watch last nights episode yet (I DVR them most of the time). I'm also pretty partial to Breaking Bad. Looking forward to the Prisoner coming up soon!

    I just finished watching through season 2 and I loved it, although I like season 1 better than season 2 I think.

    You have to watch last night's...all I will tell you is that it was a "game changer" in Don's relationship with Betty.

    Not surprised...the audience this season (3rd) is about 4 times what it was in season 1...I'm sure a lot of people are going back to see 1 and 2.

    I love Mad Men. It is such a well made show. As a female, it doesn't hurt that Jon Hamm is very easy on the eyes.

    As a male, it doesn't hurt that most of the women on there are easy on the eyes as well.

    But really, I love it because it is just an all around good show. I think the AMC Originals are some of the best shows on TV.

    My wife doesn't like how "sexist" that time period was...the show tends to irritate her because of this. But I agree...they are very careful to stay true to the period.

    Don and Betty are quite an attractive couple.

    I LOVE this show, it is absolutely stunning, both in the stories and the way it is all shot and put together. And January Jones (Betty) is very stunning in her own right, and I did not know that about her.
