Oooooh, I have been looking forward to today's post since I figured out this theme. I LOVE this show. Let's go.
So, the first of two AMC shows of this month and also probably my other most favorite show of the moment, in addition to AMC's The Walking Dead (obviously for "W"). Where do I begin? Have you seen this show? It is amazing. I love a good period show (remember Downton Abbey?) and the 1950's and 1960's are fascinating. Throw in the advertising angle (once upon a time many moons ago advertising was my dream career) and I'm hooked. The acting is stellar and the characters are so well developed. I get lost in the story lines so easily. I also love how cultural references are worked in throughout the plot and also influence the story as it develops. It has been amazing to see it change over the past 6 seasons as they deal with all of the many issues and events of the 1960's. Equal Rights, feminism, the race to the Moon, etc. Amazing. It is clear to see why it has won so many awards. The cast works so well together yet each one does an outstanding job alone.
As I write this the 7th, and final, season has already premiered (last night) but I am still getting caught up on Season 6 thanks to Netflix. My plan is to binge on that when I can and get caught up via On Demand with the current season. I'm saddened that this is the show's last season, I will miss it. But I also can't wait to see how they end it and tie up all of the loose ends that have developed over the past few years.
Again, I LOVE this show and could go on and on about it but I will spare you. What about you? A fan (how could you not be?)? Who is your favorite character? What is your favorite thing about the show? Just writing this has given me the itch to watch an episode!!!
All is well, 13/26 (halfway!) down, in Drosche Land.
