The Mad Men Are Back
I've spent the last month or so watching "Mad Men" seasons 1-3 on my wonderful Kindle Fire. Tonight I begin Season 4 expecting to finish before the now delayed 18 months Season 5 begins March 25th.
Getting my fix while the show has been on hiatus due to contractual disputes between the creator and the network (or whatever) has forced me to renew my acquaintance with a show I originally deemed a "very well written soap opera dramatization" of the early 1960s. I have greater respect for the writing and character development and psychological turmoil of said characters sent against the backdrop of the turbulent Sixties in which I was growing up.
