Mad Men

Well now that we're at permanent site finally we have a lot of free time. Especially right now as I'm just observing teachers and figuring out my schedule for teaching. We had such an awesome plan to go to this mountain wat about 4 km away from here. Apparently there are wild monkeys there. We had a plan. We were just going to watch 1 episode of Mad Men and then go in the afternoon. Umm, a season and a half later it was 8 pm and we hadn't left the house all day. Good thing we had some food stored here, otherwise we couldn't have accomplished an entire day of Mad Men. So...here are my thoughts about this show.

Umm, I love it. I loved the first three seasons and ate it up and wanted to watch it all the time.Luckily I was busy all the time during training, or else I probably would have watched all 4 seasons by now.
I have a serious girl crush on January Jones after watching this show. And a real crush on Jon Hamm. (Anyone remember him from 30 Rock? haha, pre-mad men sexy days).

But we just started the 4th season and it's so different. My love for Betty Draper is almost gone. And Don is just a drunk. Please, someone tell me that there is a method to the madness? And that I'll still love the show at the end of this season.

I am so bummed that season 5 doesn't start until March, and then I'll have to wait until it's done airing to find it at some little shop for like $6 or something. Gah, anyone know of a website that would work in Cambodia where I can watch current shows happening in the US? I have a lot of free time and am missing 30 Rock!

Pan Am looked so good, has anyone been watching it? Ok, let's just face it, I love time period shows.


P.S. You guys should let me know of new TV shows that come out that you love, so I can see if I can find them here come May or June. And the same for movies!


Update: Just finished season 4 and I'm even more mad!(pun intended) Seriously, her? Faye was way better. Ugh, March better come quick, although they always skip forward, never starting where they left off.

I started watching this to see what all the hype was about. I watched the first 4 epidoses. Not bad. Love the fashion and such. But the mis-treatment of women and frequent racial slurring got to me.

I think it does a great job of giving us a window into that time though...and that is important even if it does make me uncomfortable. :)

I've only seen the first two seasons of Mad Men. A really good show that's on this fall that's new is Terra Nova. It's really good!

LOVE LOVE LOVE Mad Men. I had to...ahem...acquire them through a friend on the island, but I'm happy to hear that by the time the 5th season rolls around I'll be back in the States. :)

I started watching Mad Men now that it's all on Netflix. I'm just starting season three and I'm already feeling the love for Betty slip away and my annoyance at Don start. Hopefully I'll be all caught up by March.

I love period dramas too.

You should check out Downton Abbey. Season 2 airs in the states starts in January. Season 1 was only about 7 or 8 episodes so it'll be easy to catch up on. It's really good. :)
