I am not someone who watches TV, a lot. I don’t have a lot of free time on my hands but also, nothing is really worth watching. The last series I watched from beginning to end was FRIENDS and that ended about 10 years ago. For the past couple of weeks, I have been listening to my friends go on and on about how good MAD MAN is, from the stories to the costumes to the set design. So I said “What the hell, let’s watch it”. 

I was blown away. Everything was thought of, even the tiny details. You feel like you are living in the 1950’s in the USA and you are part of their world. The characters outfit was well done: despite looking alike, each one stands out one way or the other. The set design is a clear representation of a “Taylorist” office: cubicles, director has his own office. Even the house of each character is designed to the last detail. However, the high level of women suffering from anorexia is shocking. On a social level, it’s interesting to see the role of women evolve in the office space or even in their homes, they start having a say in matters. On a health level, they discover the negative impact of smoking on your health.  

So if you’re not a Mad Manner yet, what are you waiting for?
