Missing Out on Mad Men?


I must admit, I am light years behind the rest of the world when it comes to my obsession with Mad Men. The good news is this – the series is on a hiatus until 2012, so it’s actually the PERFECT time for me to watch all four seasons on DVD!

I watched seasons 1 and 2 thanks to borrowed DVDs from our friends Steve and Jen (thanks!) over Thanksgiving/Christmas-ish time 2010. Fast forward to last week. I got myself a library card, and what is the first thing I got with it? Mad Men season 3, of course – I totally ignored the 5 stories of books surrounding me :)

I watched all but a few episodes over the weekend, leaving a few on Monday and the season finale last night. Dang. I can’t wait to turn in these DVDs and pick up season 4! I’m not going to lie – the finale of season 3 was definitely predictable…but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t good. I mean, divorces and starting your own ad agency in NYC by poaching top talent and clients before you’re bought by a “big box” agency doesn’t exactly happen every day – unless you’re Don Draper :)

So to my friends who have been watching Mad Men for years – Lindsay, KWay, etc. – you were right. It’s a good show. Now I only have one more season to go until we’re finally on the same page! (Sadly, this is the same way I was for Harry Potter – I refused to read any books or see any movies until it was time for finals my senior year of college. What better time to watch a marathon of three-hour long movies than when you should be studying?? Exactly. Needless to say, I was hooked after watching HP 1-4, then HP 5 came out in theatres and I began reading the books. The rest, as they say, is history.)



About Brittney

Being born and raised in Texas and attending the University of Texas, there were two things in life of which I was ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN: 1. That I would never leave Texas and 2. That I would NEVER date a Sooner. Boy was I wrong!

  1. I’m on episode 4 right now… just started watching this weekend. Sadly, Justin is limiting me to one a night because he’s trying to catch up on Fringe. Ugh.
