Mad Men is my 2nd favorite show, it took a close second place due to the bad assness of Breaking Bad.
What I loved about Mad Men when it first started was being able to watch a show that really dramatized the creative ideas in such a compelling way. As a creative director, its nice design porn to see Don just owning all the stuffy account guys. I will never forget the first time I saw 'The Wheel' and was just blown away by Don's idea and pitch to Kodak.
Didn't i read a story that back in the day - Aston Kutcher dumped January Jones and told her that she would never amount to anything....
