Emmy nominations eve!

Every year I tell myself not to care about the Emmys, and every year I do anyway. In fact, my thoughts about last year’s nominations made up my very first post in the “rant” category! Hopefully I will have less to complain about this year, especially if the hypnotic, succulent series Mad Men gets a lot of recognition, as it is expected to. The show follows the men and women who work at an ad agency in 1960, and everything about it is pitch perfect. Sadly though, I am the only person I know who watches. But there’s something you can do about that! Start watching! Season one is out on DVD now (in a sweet box that looks like a big Zippo lighter), as well as on demand for Comcastys. Or you can watch a marathon of the whole thing this Sunday on AMC, starting at 9:00 AM. So many options! Pick one and go with it before the season two premiere on July 27th! Because you really shouldn’t be depriving yourself of a series with dialogue like this:

These shows made me sooo thankful to Women’s Liberation. And the non-stop smoking? Let’s all take a deep breath of clean fresh air.
