Trusting recommendations from friends, I'm watching "Mad Men" via Netflix and I have to say, I'm not sure I get it.
It's a series about a group of advertising executives (and their wives) set in 1960s New York City. The lead character, Don Draper (pictured above), reminds me of a cynical Michael Steadman from "Thirtysomething," and I really like that one of the secretaries played the president's daughter in "West Wing." But, overall, it's just very soapy ... oh, and everyone smokes ... A LOT!
