Season 2 of Mad Men Gets a Premiere Date



Hooray: The second season of the dark, gripping and insanely clever AMC series Mad Men now has a premiere date of Sunday July 27 at 10:00 p.m. (9:00 Central). And commence countdown. . . now.

I am completely smitten with this show which sheds a bright and unforgiving light on the advertising industry in New York (on Madison Avenue) in the 1960s. It's often difficult — though mesmerizing — to watch as it never glosses over the fact that while some might call it a "more innocent" time, certain things were seriously messed up back then (rampant and intense racism and sexism in the office, pregnant ladies drinking and smoking constantly, etc.). The people working on this show do a phenomenal job of capturing this bygone era using language, set pieces and especially the fashion of the times.

If you haven't seen the show and want to catch up before it comes back to TV, the series will be on DVD July 1.
