MUSINGS ON MAD MEN & OTHER DELIGHTS

AN INTRODUCTION TO WHY THE HELL I’M INSISTING ON WRITING ABOUT A SHOW THAT’S ALREADY OVERPOPULAR AND OVERANALYZED

 On too many levels, Mad Men blows my mind – but for reasons of brevity and being true to journalism’s minimalist  nature (conciseness!),  I’ll try to concentrate on one aspect of this retro-set show (if possible) per “musing” after this explanatory intro.

 

For those of you who don’t know, Mad Men is short for Madison Avenue Men, for the sharp almost exclusively male denizens of the advertising world in NYC circa the ‘50’s and ‘60’s.
