Mad Men is Picked Up for a Second Season!

Both TV Guide and E! Online are reporting that Mad Men was officially picked up for a second season!

This show has the potential to do for AMC what Sex and the City did for HBO... that is, put it on the map for something other than films. (Do you remember when HBO was strictly a movie channel?)

Anyway, Mad Fans, today's a day for celebration. Who among us wants Don Draper to hook up with Rachel Menken? And who loved Betty shooting at the birds last week in her peignoir with a cigarette dangling out of her mouth? This show is as dark as I imagine The Sopranos was but without the violence. In fact, the backdrop of 1960 makes the subversion that much more rich.

Anyway, three cheers for AMC.

Glad to hear it got picked up and glad to hear it is so highly recommended. Unfortunately I'll most likely be able to watch it on DVD. Though I should really check if I even get AMC. But I'm always a bit perturbed with the dearth of quality TV on the tube, so I'm happy to hear such a quality show is doing well.

LA, Pelegrim was raving about this show. Seems to me he's just reminiscing back to when he hired me long before the days of Anita Hill and Clarence Thomas.

I plan on downloading and watching the episodes from the beginning. Anything even remotely related to The Sopranos is something I want to see!!

i hope pru knows that "medical transcription" and "medical prescription" are two different things. and you can help her with one, but not the other!!

what night does mad money come on?

Thursday nights @ 10:00, Kitty.

Kook - Hopefully, you've seen it by now. It's also available On Demand if you have cable.
