|Mad Men has changed the way we view television.|
I remember the first few times I tried to tell people about it. "It's set in the 60's. And it's about advertising executives in New York...on Madison Avenue...that's where they get the name 'Mad Men'. And it's really good."
This was usually met with the response, "That doesn't sound very interesting".
To which I replied, "I know. But that's the thing... it's phenomenal." And, I'd go on to talk about how addicting the show was...and how my wife in I would lie in bed and watch it streaming from Amazon, and we'd watch the show one after another....

However,as time went on, and the accolades for the show kept rolling in, more people I knew started watching. I don't even feel like an "outsider" for watching it anymore.

If you haven't started watching it yet... do yourself a favor and give it a try. But, start at the beginning.... get the dvd's, or rent it online... but start at the very beginning.
