Midsummer Madness

Ah, finally...the beginning of the second season of Mad Men on AMC and finding out the what's-up with Don Draper and crew over at Sterling Cooper! The styling on this show is like watching a moving mid-century-modern painting...serious eye candy. Makes me wanna walk around the house in a three-piece suit with a scotch on the rocks in hand. Y'know, before sitting down to the dinner table to eat my tomato gelatin salad while smoking a carton of Chesterfields.

Great acting, great storytelling, this is the kind of show that makes me yearn for the days when "reality" television is but a distant memory.
