Check out Willa Paskin's view over at Salon
What is it about Mad Men’s allure; does it attract a certain type? Is it merely about forms of escapism, a longing to be back in a society where one could, “drink all day”, smoke day and night, without being made to feel guilty, an era where you could be, “casually racist, misogynist, and homophobic with no consequences.” I always thought it had more to do with one’s very own stylized interpretation, but that is just another opinion about a show of multitudes that, in spite if its small net audience continues to intrigue.
Season Five of Mad Men begins in Australia in April.
