Oh boy. I paused my Netflix account before finals started last semester because I didn't want to pay for it over the summer when I have cable at home. Well, the suspension only lasts three months... and I had to unpause it.
So, so bad.
When I went to update my account, I immediately saw that Mad Men was now on Netflix. "Great!" I thought, "I've always wanted to watch it." So I casually watched one episode... and then another... and then another!!!
I am hooked!!! Holy moly, I've already blown through the first season and part of the second. (In my defense, I did have pink eye twice and reading was difficult with only one eye.)
It's amazing!!!! I love the clothing, the references, the relationships (and there are many), the social issues... the whole nine yards. I wish I was around back then (minus the whole womanizing thing). At least just for the clothing!
I have been seeing the advertisements for the Mad Men collection at Banana Republic. Unfortunately, when I went to see the dresses in person, I was not impressed. The material looks cheap and the colors are not as bold as they are in the magazines. In fact, Soccer Mom and I were curious why the clothing wasn't even displayed in the window... and then we found out. Yuck. I was quite sad. However, I think I'm definitely going to be channeling Betty while shopping. I love the full skirts!!!
I absolutely NEED to know who else is MAD for MAD MEN! Was anyone else turned off by the Banana Republic collection (in person)?
