I've been watching Mad Men since it premiered back in July. It took me a little while to get used to all the male chauvinism, but now that I've learned to accept that as a part of the show's arguably accurate depiction of 1960s New York, I'm nothing short of hooked.

As it should be, the show's main character, Don Draper, is easily the most interesting part of the show. His quiet self-reflection and his marital and extramarital activities combined with his man's man persona make for quite the lead. As a viewer, I feel like I'm constantly guessing at what he's thinking, just like the other characters who surround him in his day-to-day life.

If you haven't had a chance to catch Mad Men yet, I'd highly recommend it. I think I'm about halfway through the season at this point and I seriously can't get enough.
