Several months ago, I picked up a dvd of the first season of Mad Men--about advertising men in New York in the very early 1960's. It's been such a busy semester, I never got around to watching it.So I sat down to watch one episode during this nice week between Christmas and New Year's Day, as a respite from grading== and got up three hours later--after I'd moved through the entire first disk.UPDATE: Here's a nice column on the theology of Mad Men by Rev. Patrick Ward, an Episcopal priest in Lincoln, Mass.
