Mad about Mad Men

For a while now I have been a little bit in love with the programme MAD MEN, it is just so different than anything else on TV. Its hard to pinpoint just one thing that I love about the show, visually it is very beautiful to look at. The programme is set in the sixties and shows the advertising world of the sixties. It really shows more than that it is from a time when men were men and women were....well, housewives.

The lead in the show is the delicious John Hamm who plays the talented and yet moody Don Draper, he is a man's man, chain smoking, whiskey drinking, womanising, alpha male. We should hate him....but we don't. He is married to the Grace Kelly look alike Betty Draper who hides her depression behind perfect hair. If Bree from Desperate Housewives had a God she would be in the form of Betty Draper.

The programme is set in such an exciting time when women are breaking out of the home and into the workplace. Times are a changing and the programme shows how people and the world evolved.

To be perfectly honest though the thing that grabs me most are the wonderful clothes and makeup, I dare you to watch this programme and not break out the red lippy and black eyeliner.
