Mad Men

madmenCan anyone explain the appeal of Mad Men?  We just finished watching the first 3 episodes and I thought it was very boring.  In fact I blogged through most of it because every time I looked up Don was smoking or screwing some woman who wasn’t his wife.

And for me, the treatment of the women at the office was way too reminiscent of the office culture for about the first 10 years of my working life.

I understand this is a favorite of Obama’s.  Why?!

  1. Thank you. You helped me understand why I don’t like Mad Men, either. It is the way women were treated for most of my working life. Watching it makes me feel uncomfortable.

  2. Yeah, I just don’t see the appeal. I’m wondering what I’m missing.
