  1. My husband and I are absolutely crazy about this show now! We stream it through Netflix and are nearing the end of season 4. Arghhh! They don’t have season 5 yet! Above all else I hugely admire people who can write a series like this. What talent! Thanks for being a fellow junkie on this one. xoxo

  2. Oh, girliel I had no idea you had done this!! Just when I didn’t think it was possible to love your posts any more- BAM! There’s this stuff! Thank you! thank you! I’ll be following right along with you :) Jan

      So glad, Jan! Love, love, love this show – as Madge does! (And I love commenting on all of it – from the art to the furnishings to the use of lighting and color and of course, the incredible characters and their relationships through a tumultuous decade of change. Always thrilled to find more Mad Men addicts.)
