Mad Men Is Mad Awesome

I've finally found a TV show that fills the void left by The Sopranos. Mad Men is a drama about a Madison Avenue Ad agency in the 1960's. Here are a few reasons why you should check this show out:

- Matt Weiner, the show's creator, was a former writer and executive producer of The Sopranos
- In it's first season the show won the 2008 Golden Globe for best drama
- There are only 13 episodes in the first season, and only three episodes of the second season have aired meaning it won't take long to catch up
- The show is quite possibly as literate and deep as The Sopranos
- Christina Hendricks is the hottest redhead on television

As with other shows that I've recommended in the past, I'm offering up my copy for anybody interested in checking it out. But be warned. After watching the show you just might have the biggest urge to drink whiskey and smoke cigarettes.

Based on this recommendation, I watched an episode. I do have to say that I enjoyed it. It was somewhat of a sleeper hit. Crept up on me slowly but now I want to watch more. Good recommendation.
