A Tribute to Mad Men
Thanks to my coworkers I have become a Mad Men addict.
This show has a lot of awesome actors and actresses: Jon Hamm (We Were Soldiers), Elisabeth Moss (The West Wing), Vincent Kartheiser (Angel), John Slattery (Desperate Housewives), Christina Hendricks (Kevin Hill), and January Jones (We Are Marshall) along with guest star (and stage/screen legend) Robert Morse (How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying). Michael Gladis (Third Watch), Aaron Staton (The Nanny Diaries), Rich Sommer (The Devil Wears Prada), and Bryan Batt (La Cage Aux Folles") round out the cast.
The women play such an integral part of the show, giving you a clear view of what it is like to be a house wife, secretary, or copywriter in the 1960's. The men play many different roles which gives you a different feel for each character. The creators don't over explain ever situation so you are able to take your own view point on each scene or character.
So thank you Mad Men creators for taking time to create something I want to watch and something that gets me excited to click on that On Demand button each week.
