Awhile back, Mark decided he wanted to get into watching Mad Men. He had heard all the rave reviews and thought he should jump on the bandwagon. I am the opposite. If I don't like something on my own before the hype starts, I am not about to jump aboard. That's why I have never picked up Harry Potter and never will. I had no interest in it to begin with and now it's just crazy. I'm just stubborn like that.
Anyway, so Mark started watching it, and since it's on about the time I am feeding the little one, I watch it with Mark. Following last night's season finale (don't worry no spoilers here), I am stuck with the same feelings I had after the first few shows we watched; I don't get it. I get the story line/plot, but I just don't get the hype. It's a fine show, if you like shows that depict alcoholism, rampant infidelity, chauvinism, poor parenting, etc., but there are plenty of other shows out there I enjoy more. Perhaps I am more easily entertained and the more "intelligent", deep thought shows are beyond my grasp, but I am just not getting the hype. Can someone explain why it gets all of the accolades it does?
I need to find a replacement for my TV obsession now that LOST is gone. Not sure The Event will cut it. At least L&O CI is coming back for a final 8 episodes with Goren and Eames. I will have to live on that for now.
Anyone have any suggestions of shows that are can't miss?
