I think "Mad Men" is supposed to depict the early 60's, before the Beatles. The JFK era...

Ingrid? Hmmm.... yes, could be!!! I will have to try this one. ; )

Why what? Is it that you haven't seen the television show yet? It says that the men of Madison Avenue called themselves Mad Men, but it is interesting because everyone is going insane trying to fill these rigid gender roles.

The marks that advertising has left on culture are pretty interesting. Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer was created as advertising in the earlier part of the 20th century.

ooooooooh. that makes sense. yeah I don't watch much tv; what I do watch is what I've downloaded from the internet and it usually takes me a year or more to catch wind of new tv shows.

it's new, right?

I didn't know the Rudolph story. I guess I figured the character originated with the song itself, although I hadn't given much thought to how long the song had been around. that's really interesting.

Mad Men is fairly new. It has been around for a season. It's on the American Movie Channel, and it recently won a bunch of Emmys.

It makes smoking so very sexy.

I've only seen one episode of Mad Men and I wasn't impressed. I've been told it moves slowly, though, and takes awhile to get into it. Have you used www.hulu.com? It is awesome for watching tv shows.
