I feel I have to mention this award winning series for a few reasons.
First and foremost the historical depiction of the 1960's is dead on.
The interiors, fashion, cars, and product placement transport the viewer
back in time with unbelievable accuracy.
Mad Men created by Matthew Weiner, begins it's second season this Sunday,
July 27th at 10pm on AMC.
For those of you not familiar with this provocative series, here is a quick overview.
The show takes place during the 1960's. Most of the scenes are set at a fictional
advertising firm on Madison Avenue in New York City.
Each week the drama depicts the lives of the firm's execs and their families.
The social etiquette and historical references of the time period are marvelously
woven through the plot.
Think of a time pre- JFK, smoking regulations and sexual harassment laws.
I often watch vintage movies for inspiration. This show is current but portrays
a snap shot of a distant era. It's sexy, intense and sometimes disturbing.
Here is a sneak peek of past and future episodes.
