Quick before it’s too late! Go watch it on Netflix Instant now! All four seasons! Dude!
Ok, fine. You probably need more convincing.
You see that woman above? That’s Joan. Joan’s in every episode. If that’s not enough for you, you may be a lost cause, but honestly, you’ll also be missing out on one of the most cleverly-written, fantastic dramas the normally swirling shit-bowl of TV has ever produced. Oh, and if you’re a fan of drinking, smoking, bad parenting practices, hilariously outdated racism and misogyny it’s got that too. It’s the 60′s, what do you expect?
Those attributes are really only set pieces to the rich, well-developed characters, amazing cinematography, and a carefully paced plot that makes Mad Men rise where others might fall and break their face. If you don’t believe me, believe the fact that it’s from AMC, the channel that’s also cranking out two of my other favorite shows, Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead. Go ahead and do yourself a favor: watch Mad Men before you’re loudly mocked for being a useless loser with no taste who wouldn’t know a good show if it grabbed you by the testicles and twisted until your sex changed. If you’re a lady, replace “testicles” with “breasticles”.
