Mad about…

I’m hooked on Mad Men. At this point I’m watching the six episodes available On Demand multiple times. What’s the story, is the season over? Was there not an episode last week? The last episode I have is episode 9.

In the meantime Gridskipper has a Mad Men guide to NY. It’s not very detailed but it is helping me get my Mad Men fix until the next episode.

UPDATE: Ask and you receive. From Mad Men’s PR people:

Mad Men is back tomorrow with a brand new episode. Episode 10, “The Long Weekend” airs this Thursday, September 27th at 10/9PM CT on AMC. I have preview photos and clip available here.

I like Mad Men too, i’ve been a fan since the first episode. The writing and the sets are impeccable, and the acting’s quite good too. I especially like the older guy, the head of the agency – he really knows how to deliver a line.
I don’t know if the 60’s depicted in the show ever really existed, but it would be nice t think they did.

I love Mad Men too. It was recommended by a coworker. My cable has all the episodes On Demand, and I’m up to #5. So fun. The depicted un-PC-ness (pregnant women smoking & drinking; drinking & driving; sexual politics) are eye-popping to me and I love to watch it. Plus, Don Draper is hot stuff! So is Joan – wow!

One word: Usenet.
I am often surprised that people know all about downloading B Spears via P2P/torrents, but have never considered this amazing resource. All eps of Men are available, usually about a day after broadcast. OK, theft (maybe, but I think largely only if the producers are actively considering releasing video products such as DVD’s).
Do search(es) on XNEWS software and GigaNews archive provider, among others.
I don’t use it much for current stuff myself (except for “Sea Patrol”, an Australian TV show) but I do get a number of Thirties and Forties movies. And where else could I find an MP3 of a Joplin performance (that’s Scott Joplin via a player-piano roll!!!)? Or Edison recordings of the original Sousa-led Marine band?
