Yep, I’ve Joined the Bandwagon

Perhaps you find yourself thinking Hey, was that SCDP logo we saw in the new office in Arial font? No it wasn’t. It’s Akidenz Grotesk, totally acceptable if you are a stickler for such things. You might also be thinking Font? Who cares about that shiz. Did Don just request to be slapped around by a prostitute? Damn. Yes. Damn. Many of you however might be thinking Well I dooooo declare, what in tarnation are you talking about? Mad Men is the answer (and yes, I imagine you thinking in that folksy southern voice). I got sick of all the hype and figured there was no way the show could be worthy of all the praise it received. But then I watched it one night. I stand corrected. The show is good.

*Stole the hedcut from here.

  1. This is good to know. We just rented the first season from Netflix and I'm hoping to be blown away.

  2. Wait, are you starting with season 4?? I hope you've at least signed up for Netflix and cleared your schedule for the next month or so to catch up. It is so, so worth it.

  5. I'm glad you're hooked. What do you think of the first episode of season 4?

  6. I have not yet ridden the Mad Men train. I think first we need to get through Lost, then maybe back to Buffy, then Arrested Development, and THEN maybe Mad Men.

  7. Miss the suave Don! What's with this yelling, slaphappy Don?

    LOVE: "Sterling, Cooper, Draper and Pryce. May I help you?"

  8. Or maybe it was HOW may I help you? But that doesn't change the fact that I want a Sterling, Cooper, Draper and Pryce coffee cup now.

  9. I'm not so much hooked on the show as I am looking back to an era. Thee are no good old days, only selective memory.

  10. Crap. I guess that makes me the last person on the planet who doesn't think Mad Men is god's gift to TV viewership. And, yes, I watched the whole first season -- trying, in vain, to figure out what the appeal was -- before I realized I just couldn't drink the purple juice.
