Last night, [livejournal.com profile] scribefigaro and I started watching Mad Men.

It's quite good.  However, since I've been somewhat interested in the show since it started winning tons of awards, I've been majorly spoiled to quite a few things.  That makes me a little sad, because I'm sure some events would have been great surprises.  But nope.  Spoiled.  It's still a good show and I'm really liking it (even though I'm only three episodes in).

What's also interesting is that I wouldn't watch Game of Thrones without significant spoilers.  I need to know who dies where and when and how before I feel comfortable watching it.  I like a lot of the characters (especially the direpuppies), so their sudden deaths would upset me.  If I ever gather the courage to watch Angel, I'm sure I'll be the same way.

But yeah, Mad Men.  I think it's great that it shows that women were not only expected to tolerate constant sexual harassment, but that they were to do so cheerfully, without complaint.  It reminds me of stories my grandmother tells.  She was a nurse during the same time period and, apparently, doctors were just as bad as ad men.  She said that if she complained about any of the groping, ogling, and just rude comments about her appearance, she would have been fired.  I am so very thankful for the women's movement.

The women on this show are impressing the hell out of me.  Especially the secretaries.  Peggy Olsen is just wonderful and the redhead (I call her Saffron because I can't remember her character's name and she played Saffron on Firefly) is killing me with the sheer amount of her awesome.  Looking forward to watching next next set of episodes.  :)
