This Sunday, April 7th, is the two hour season premiere of Mad Men. Hot damn! So light up a menthol, raise your glass, and read this quick recap of past seasons to get you caught up to speed.

She's A Maineiac

One of my guilty pleasures is watching the AMC hit show Mad Men.  I love the sets/costumes, the actors, and the writing. I watched the first four seasons in a span of a month. I didn’t think I’d like it, but I was hooked. Some of you may not have seen it yet (or might not care to) and I realize we live in a bite-sized entertainment culture where we have super short attention spans.

So here is my quick take on things, a zippy little recap of the entire show in 500 words or less:

Ooh! Jazzy cool theme song and opening credits!

Yes, we all work in an ultra-hip Manhattan advertising agency. And we drink.

A lot.

  1. Gosh, you make me wish I had HBO! Sounds like I’m missing a steamy show. Whenever I hear anyone talk about Mad Men, they always start off by telling me about John Hamm and how cute he is. But, after reading your recap, I find that Betty Draper character just as fascinating.

    1. You can watch it on AMC, not HBO. I don’t have HBO either. Hamm is so damn sexy and a great actor. He’s been on 30 Rock with Tina Fey a few times too and is hilarious. I really can’t stand Betty but I suppose that means she’s a good actress. Or maybe she’s just as mean in real life.

  2. As much as I like Mad Men, I think I like the AMC promos (the ones that show how Mad Men, The Walking Dead, and Breaking Bad are all basically the same show) even more.

  3. Mad Men is definitely my guilty pleasure. Only one more minutes before it’s on! When it used to air during the summer, I would record the show, wait until my husband had gone to bed, then pour a drink and watch with the windows open and the late night summer breeze coming in. It added to the ambiance of time period.

    1. ahhh….you paint a lovely picture there. Late night summer breeze and a drink? Heaven! I still haven’t seen the entire episode from last night yet. And here I am on my blog AGAIN. sigh..

Tell me about it.
