Madmen: a show with all the spaceage fashions, furniture, office politics, old fashioned cocktails, beatniks, sex, city glamour and intrigue a retro lover could ever ask for! I can't believe I have never watched it before! There is a marathon on AMC today. Now that I am watching it, it is especially significant to me since it takes place in the year before I was born. As far as the cultural references, it seems to ring true, especially with the "What do women want?" "Who Cares?" sexism and machismo of the times.
You gotta watch it! By the way, check out the play by play marathon commentary over at the LiveJournal Madmen TV community.
