Has anybody checked out the new Mad Men on AMC?! I love that series, and it looks like this season is going to be intense!

I read an interesting story in the times a bit ago...you might have seen it already...sorry for any duplications:

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/22/magazine/22madmen-t.html


I love the fact that the show is progressing to '63....be interesting to see how they bring in actual historical events with Kennedy....

I am interested to see how they handle that too. I am also interested to see how the show handles the progression of the 60's and Vietnam (If the show lasts that long.)

I'm in the U.K. so it will be awhile before we get Season 3.

Okay - so no spoilers without alerts, I expect.

So far this season is mighty fine by me... plenty of interesting things right off the bat. Less wearing of hats, though....

I think that is b/c Kennedy was just elected President and he didn't wear hats. They reference this last season (I think). I have heard somewhere that Kennedy ushered in the fashion of men not wearing hats, but I could be wrong.

As minutely detailed in the book, Hatless Jack.
