Mad Ads

I really love US drama Mad Men. It's taken me by surprise really. It shouldn't do, since it's from the same people who brought us the wonderfully dark Sopranos but I really was genuinely drawn in by it - even if I was painfully tired!

Maybe it's the fact that there's a few stories going on at the same time and it doesn't portray the ad world as being as glamorous as it is thought to be - well, okay, they go to fancy bars and drink champagne but it's not all fun and games. It's a bit on the gritty side too, with characters needing help from psychiatrists, jealousy and misogynistic views in the office. Although it's not as tough as the Sopranos was to watch in some places, it's still brilliantly captivating.
