Gee, What A Mad World

25 Jul

It’s finally here!  AMC’s hit show “Mad Men” returns tonight with the season 4 premiere at 10pm ET.

Yes, I’ll admit it: I’m a “Mad Men” junky.  My mother got me hooked after she lent me seasons 1 and 2.  But how could I not get sucked in?  The characters are enticing and bizarre, each with their own secrets and demons in an era that is obsessed with keeping up appearances and looking like the Cleavers.  Each one is absolutely mad, but they hide it with makeup, fancy drinks, and fake smiles.  Every day is a balancing act as they try to keep it all together.

The “Mad Men Unbuttoned” blog does a remarkable job of highlighting the intricacies time period.  It is a fantastic “Romp Through 1960’s America” that really analyzes the culture of this hit series.  Recently, the blog became a book…so it’s gotta be pretty good.  Check it out!

One of my favorite blogging projects, the “fabulous and opinionated” Tom & Lorenzo, are all over “Mad Men” fashion and news.  They hold nothing back in their brutally honest reviews, which is why I adore them.  Lucky for us, they got to check out an early premiere of this mesmerizing show.  All I can say is this little snippet has me on the edge of my seat:

“Trust us, it was one of the best episodes of the show we’d ever seen. Really. There wasn’t one boring moment or wasted line and pretty much every character got a brief moment in the spotlight.”

It’s gonna be mad…
