26 March 2012Things I Love
Is there anything better than being the last to jump on the bandwagon of something that’s gotten tons of hype, and then discover that it was worth every word of it? At that point I think to myself, Why was I ignoring this before, when everyone kept saying how amazing it was? Case in point:
Um, yeah. Why was I not watching this show? I really don’t have a good answer to that question (IS there a good answer to that question?). However, I’m actually pretty happy about it, because now I have the opportunity to utterly immerse myself in a crazy, all-consuming Mad Men marathon. I’ve spent every minute of my free time for the past forty-eight hours entrenched in Season One and now am halfway through Season Two-and do I even need to say how obsessed I am?
Before watching, I always had a shoulder-shrug reaction to Jon Hamm. While everyone was swooning, I really didn’t get it-he kind of looked like a Dad to me, and he always had sort of a goofy smile in every red carpet pic I saw. I just thought “eh.” Well, now that I’ve seen him as Don Draper….
let’s just say, my shoulders shrug no more.
