My most recent TV obsession.
If you're not familiar with the series, it is described below perfectly at the AMC website, the shows host network.
Set in 1960s New York, the sexy, stylized and provocative AMC drama follows the lives of the ruthlessly competitive men and women of Madison Avenue advertising, an ego-driven world where key players make an art of the sell.
The series revolves around the conflicted world of Don Draper (Jon Hamm), the biggest ad man (and ladies man) in the business, and his colleagues at the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce Advertising Agency. As Don makes the plays in the boardroom and the bedroom, he struggles to stay a step ahead of the rapidly changing times and the young executives nipping at his heels. The series also depicts authentically the roles of men and women in this era while exploring the true human nature beneath the guise of 1960s traditional family values.
I bet I'm close to one of the last people on the planet to watch the show. I've known about the show for several years, but never caught an episode. That is, until I spotted the entire series on Netflix about a month and half ago.
I was instantly hooked.
The 60's fashions.
The 60's decor.
The beautifully dressed and accessorized men and women.

Some of the show's characters have even been immortalized in a Barbie Collection!
The show is addicting.
I've completed all four seasons in the last 5 or 6 weeks.
Now, I'm anxiously awaiting the premiere of Season 5 to begin on March 25.
Thanks for visiting!
