My wife has REALLY gotten into Mad Men. I like the show, but it drives me a little crazy. While writing this, the reason occurred to me.
I am a Superman fan. I am the rare person that loves the pure hero. I don’t care for the conflicted, damaged, or anti-hero. Don and Co. are all too damaged for me. As soon as I get to liking a character, they do something to make me dislike them. For most people, this is probably the best part of the show.
I understand it makes for good characterization, but it’s not for me. I can’t deal with the duplicity.
Between episodes we’re packing, and getting ready to move. Maybe I’m weird, but I think a empty house is exciting. Houses, by nature, should feel stable. However, when you’re moving the air is electric with potential. Potential for the people leaving and potential for the people coming. I love it.
Back to packing. See you Wednesday.
