On a whim about a month ago, I started watching AMC’s Mad Men on iTunes. It’s not TheGreatestShowEverOMGWhyAren’tYouWatchingThis like another show I could mention, but it’s pretty damn fun. The suits are dope,* the acting is first-rate and Peggy Olson is one of the best female characters a TV drama has produced. We should probably start blogging about it. (Also, Christina Hendricks. The mind reels.)
Here’s a question for fans of the show: is January Jones, aka Betty Draper, a good actress playing an annoying character, or just a bad actress?
*shani-o put me on How I Met Your Mother, which is also a lot of fun, and which often boasts Neil Patrick Harris in some snazzy suits. It’s funny how you notice stuff like this as you get older.
