I'll be the first to admit...I tend to "discover" trends rather late sometimes (e.g., I just read the Hunger Games trilogy last month). My latest addiction is Mad Men, and I'm sure many of you have been in this boat for years. A couple weeks ago I started with season 1 episode 1 while I was prepping a rather large bulk mailing at work. I finished the last episode of season 4 last night. Yep, all 52 episodes in 2 weeks and 4 days. Don't worry, I didn't watch them at work!

Mad Men has become my second favorite show, The Sopranos being the first. Matthew Weiner, the director of Mad Men, even wrote several Sopranos episodes. Mad Men is a stunning time piece about 1960s life in (and out) of a popular ad agency on Madison Avenue, NYC. The fashion is amazing, the characters are deep and always revealing new sides, and the story is fantastic. I won't give away anything, but advise you to get Netflix immediately. All 4 seasons are on instant streaming! Now I have to wait until sometime in 2012 to see season 5!
