Mad Men (I know I'm a little slow on the uptake). I love it! While Skip is away for work I throw it in the DVD player and escape to '60s New York and the advertising world. It's my little indulgence and escape from reality. The storylines are great and the costumes completely gorgeous (seriously, why can't women and men dress like that anymore?).
One part that intrigues me and thrills me is that the women look like real women (ie not Hollywood stick figures). They're curvy, soft and gorgeous and there's not a Madonna-style sinewy arm in sight. It's fairly obvious that Ally McBeal's creator David E Kelly has nothing to do with this show. In the series' first episode even the strippers at a bachelor party have shapely thighs and soft tummies.
It's fairly sad that this fact is even worthy of a whole blog post, that it's so unusual to see women that aren't a size 0 on TV. While doing a little bit of net surfing, I discovered that the stars were told not to diet and even some of the slimmer actresses were made to pad up to create more curves.
Well, whatever, if you get a chance check out this little show.
