Mad Men

I haven't had much time to spend in front of the tube lately, but I have been getting into the show 'Mad Men.' I'm in awe of how quaintly it portrays sexism and a multitude of prejudices, almost as though those days were to be missed. I become somewhat shocked at my reaction, however. In my daily life I would think nothing of being introduced to a divorced woman in slacks, but when such is introduced in the show suddenly I seem to share the same ugly sentiments as the characters do, thinking 'I bet she's on the pill.' I'm not sure if it is helping me learn more about myself, or simply affirming that under the right circumstances I too would be an asshole. Plus, it makes me want to smoke, now especially every time I step into an elevator. I must say though that the acting is great. I adore all of the characters, most especially the women in the cast, as each in her own way seem courageous amidst her flaws.
