Yep, I finally watched the first episode of Mad Men. I was sure that it would never live up to the acclaim.
I was wrong.
The show is fascinating, even from the pilot episode. Jon Hamm is perfect for the lead role, and I can't wait to see where this show goes. The closing scene was powerful. They are already addressing issues of race and gender, sometimes explicitly and other times with subtlety. The design of the show is brilliant. Bravo, Matthew Weiner!
Also, I finally subscribed to The Economist magazine! I am so excited for my first subscription! Go here for a great deal - 12 issues for $12! http://tiny.cc/yqy1f
