Mad Men

I am appalled at my grandparents' generation . . . and yet I cannot look away. The smoking, the drinking, the sexism, the kids without seatbelts--it's all wrong. This is definitely the best show on TV (or on DVD--the way I have to watch it).

My favorite line so far has been when Don went to the underground poetry reading with his girlfriend, and he had the following exchange with a beatnik poet:

Beatnik: So, you're one of the Madison Avenue advertisers that's responsible for creating this culture of consumption. How do you sleep at night?

Don: On a bed made of money.
