I'm looking forward to this experience. First impressions:
Solid acting. Good writing. Great direction. Amazing art direction/design. I actually like Elizabeth Moss in this. She's been terrible in everything else I've seen her in. The show is so misogynistic, and it's hard to watch for that reason. I understand that it's all part of the show; all part of the time/place/headspace/point. But, right now, I'm having trouble figuring out who (if anyone) I'm supposed to be rooting for. I'm, by no means offended, but there is this barrier for me. I wonder if this is commentary that will lead somewhere, or if it's just an excuse to get away with it. Sort of how people excuse old people for being racist just because "they're from a different time." I have to imagine it's the former. Surely, people wouldn't be so crazy about this thing otherwise.
Yes, silly. Mad Men is the most feminist show in television. It is a stunning achievement in feminism.
