I had TWO never-miss TV shows last year: Battlestar Galactica and AMC's Mad Men. And since many of you don't get AMC, it's been torturous because no one can talk about it with me! Well, now it's all better because Mad Men Season One has been released today on DVD. If you need a great show to watch on disc, don't miss this one: Mad Men is about the world of advertising in 1960's Madison Avenue, but it's so much more. It's also a deeply psychological look into how post-war morality affected both men and women and dictated their roles in society. Plus the suits and the tits look great! Buy or rent the DVD set, and if you need further convincing, check out this clip of a normal Mad Men office party (which is kind of like a Mercury office party, except now we have sexual harassment suits).
