    my girlfriend creams over it
    solid writing, characters are interesting and developed well
    lots of scandal
    it is entertaining though see the workings of the harsh world of advertising in the 60s

    Watched most of the first season so far, and I agree with Cunt, I don't see the big deal.

    It's a decent show though I can't really figure out wtf they are trying to do with Draper. He seems to be a moodier mute every fucking episode. He needs smacked.

    Neighbors spanking other people's children for misbehaving. Child abuse these days.

    It's very well written. It doesn't get god tier until season 4, and 5 is almost as good. 6 started off crappy, but has gotten much better as of late.

    It just ended, but the best show of the year ( so far ) was Spartacus - Gratitude to Imperator Raimi for something truly worth of jupiters cock ....

    I tried to watch it once and for the life of me I couldn't get into it. My mommy likes it a lot and recommended it but I didn't care for it.
