Beating That Horse To Death

Here's another reason I love Mad Men. Jon Hamm as protagonist Don Draper fans the flame of my raging libido. Good lord, this man is handsome as all hell.

Stylistically, the show is rich. The sets, costumes, hair, and makeup are superb. Here's Draper with one of his clients with whom he shared a hot kiss on the roof of her department store this past week.

Not that I could ever pull it off, but there is something nice about smooth style . . .

His good looks is an added bonus to an already outstanding show!

Did I tell you that I was very uncomfortable with the scene with the kid being slapped in the face in front of his father by another man at the kid's birthday party.

Holy crap, the kid was just being a kid, and was slapped hard across the face by some guy who isn't his father. it was an accident that the kid spilled his drink.

Ryan - There are a few scenes like that in every episode. Did you notice the men left the spilled drink and told the kid to have one of the women clean it up?

Huh, I hadn't heard about this show.

Sounds cool.

Anything else about your raging libido?
My day is really boring today.. :)

Dan Draper is tres sexy and smooth. I think there is going to be some mystery about him. Did you catch the guy on the train calling him a different name and saying they knew each other in the army?

We know Dan was in the war because episode 1 showed a purple heart and someone mentioned him "leading men".

So the question is: why didn't he correct the guy on the train about the name thing? Did he not care or did he indeed change his name? hmmm

The guy hitting the kid bothered me too but I think it just shows how much times have changed. The show is very realistic to its time with the put-downs of women (in episode 1 Dan Draper said "I won't have a woman talk to me that way" and she was his client!). Of course now she turns him on. But the sexism, smoking, drinking, treating kids and women badly - I think its probably all very representative of that time. Not that every person acted that way, but it was certainly there. I mean, kids were strapped and hit with rulers in school at that time.

Yeah, this is a great show and he is hot in that guy-wearing-a-nice-suit way. That scene bothered me, too, but even when I was a kid, you could get disciplined by someone else's dad. Although I admit, I've never been slapped by a friend of my dad's.

Mike! You're bad!

You know, one thing I love about this show is the subtle irony. For example, even though they've made the era look glamorous and sexy, they've painted it with the brush of reality. Anyone nostalgic for "better times" can plainly see that even with our faults and troubles, things are so much better today.
