Mad world

Now I know everyone’s been talking about this but well it’s never too late to catch on, no I’m not talking about Glee! I managed to catch an episode of Mad Men last night, it was on pretty late but I’ve certainly been bitten! And sister it’s got a taste of Sex & the City with John Slattery starring, the politician that wanted to take a tinkle on Carrie (unfortunately I can’t get that out of my head watching him.)
Aside from the ladies’ wardrobe; bold prints and rich deep shades a plenty, there is predominantly something deliciously curt in the dialogue. Watching, I wasn’t sure if I was meant to look for meaning in the short crisp delivery, or accept it as a reflection of the times. But it certainly makes today’s TV look like we’re all cursed with verbal diarrhoea.

  1. Sister, it is beautiful isn't it. Bit too late in era for me (I prefer a decade or two earlier) but good to find another programme that is carefully styled and considered. I think you are right that the curt script and delivery is deliberate. Let me watch a couple more and get back to you on this one xxx
