Mad Women

With my boringly sore throat, raw lungs & lost voice (absolutely, without out doubt fire-related) I've been bed-bound now for two days, a completely dull state of affairs, saved in part by back-to-back episodes of Mad Men, a show I'm quite frankly crazy for.




The Maharishi disagrees. "I saw a few of them," he says. "They're for chicks." And now I find out why. Most of the writers on the show are women. A great story here in the WSJ.

My experience is that MM is best watched on DVD, in pairs of episodes. I'm going to wait out the rest of season 3 until it's a package.

Dear Miss Cavendish,

You are so right. I've downloaded the whole of Season 2 from iTunes and I'm watching them sequentially, ginger lemon tea in hand.

Thank you so much for commenting.

Sig Other would take issue with the Maharishi's assessment as he is a HUGE fan of Mad Men and wants to be Don Draper.

Actually, almost every word of MM is written or re-written by a man, who is so Alpha-male, he fires every male writer from the staff almost immediately after hiring them. I do not lie.

Stephanie,

The more I think about it, the more that makes sense...and so it goes.

Thanks for commenting!
