I just got to Season 4 last night. Hooooly crap.
More than any show in recent memory, Mad Men has captivated me in such a way that I cannot stop watching it. I just started watching the show a couple of weeks ago and I’m on the last episode of Season 1. Now, I’m usually wary of something that receives non-stop praise and adoration like Mad Men has. I often wonder can a television show really be so good that it evokes responses like this? It’s hard for to imagine and hold in my mind the idea of something that can take hold of people so singularly and consistently that it leaves people in awe (I have a similar inability to imagine how a show like Dexter would fall in this category).
But I’m a believer now.
