ON: Man Men’s Summer Return

Finally a some good news for The Great Depression '09: Mad Men is coming back! It just would not be right if they left on that intense scene between Peggy and Pete? WOW!

Variety is reporting that that Mad Men executive creator Matthew Weiner has just signed a fat seven-figure deal for two more seasons.

Weiner, a former writer for The Sopranos,
originally signed on for peanuts when AMC picked up his drama about the
Madison Avenue advertising business in the 1960s. That original deal
only ran for two years and after the second season wrapped last October
he let it be known that he wanted more money before he'd re-sign.

This is fantastic news. I suppose that Mad Men would have gone on (it was picked up for a third season
by AMC), but it wouldn't be the same without Weiner. Now everyone can
breathe a sigh of relief, get back to work, and make sure those
episodes debut this summer as planned.

ON: Mad Men

Smoke filled rooms, sexist behavior and print advertising never seemed so sexy.  Mad Men is set in 1960s New York.  The sexy, stylized drama is a dynamic way of viewing the golden age of advertising as well as lives of the ruthlessly competitive men and women of Madison Avenue advertising.

Who knew that the ego-driven world we live in here on Mad Ave would make for some of the best TV out there?  I am not surprised that it would... I am just surprised that it took so long to create a show about the people who have made the art of the idea that sells come to life in a sophisticated way. 

If you have not seen it, see it.  If you have chosen not to watch, I would recommend that you take a peak as the art direction alone is something to laud and aspire to. 

For many of us it provides great insight to see how far we have come and how far we have to go.   So who is Don Draper?  His character is rich, similar to Tony Soprano, he is written in a way that makes the sociopath likable.
