Mad Men

Season One description from Netflix: It's 1960, and ad executive Don Draper rules the roost at New York's Sterling Cooper Advertising Agency amid a glamorous climate of never-ending cocktail hours, worry-free smoking and ego-stroking power in this critically acclaimed series. Draper has the good fortune of being a man's man --and a ladies' man to boot. But with the world beginning to change, he'll have to use all his smarts to stay one step ahead.

Season Two description from Netflix:
As changes mount within New York advertising agency Sterling Cooper, brilliant executive Don Draper (Jon Hamm) finds that he must work harder at staying ahead of the competition -- which includes the young execs within his own firm who are eyeing his job. Elisabeth Moss, Vincent Kartheiser and January Jones also star in this Emmy winner for Best Drama Series, which centers on Draper's dealings both inside and outside the agency.

Season Three starts on August 16th. For those that don't have cable (like myself), it is available on iTunes.

As mentioned in an earlier post, my friend, Cat Humphris, is a writer for this season. She wrote the second show for this season and is co-writing episode 11 with Marti Noxon. You can read an article from the Wall Street Journal about the women writers and see a picture of Cat: HERE

In addition to that, there is a website where you can create a Mad Men animation of yourself at Here is mine below:
