Mad Men Season 5!

A very well timed arrival here on Wednesday....I have had it reserved at the library for a few months now.

Just finished watching episode 3. Loving it. I think it's improved with each season.

We've been watching it at lunchtimes at work. Just finished series 3- I can't wait to see what happens next. I seriously think it's one of the best shows EVER. So wonderfully written, acted, shot etc. Fantastic stuff. Pretty depressing though too.. I'm very bummed that Don just keeps on womanizing, and that it now seems the marriage is over:( But it's exciting this revelation that a small crew are breaking out to form their own company, and that Joan's coming back! Hooray!

Also bummed that Peggy is with Duck! Seriously, Duck?!

I just posted something that might have been a spoiler. Sorry. I saw a spoiler online for something that happened in the latest series before I watched it, and it was frustrating knowing that it was going to happen.

But yes indeed, I love Mad Men. A good friend put me onto it a couple of years ago and I loved it pretty much as soon as I saw the first episode. I love that the characters are so flawed, although I do agree that some of their behaviour can get depressing after a while.

There's a great quote in Season 5 that I think pretty much sums up the whole show: "Everything you think's gonna make you happy turns to cr$p." We do live in such a hedonistic and pleasure seeking world, don't we?
