During the first couple seasons of Mad Men, I didn’t really think the show lived up to the hype. I love the show and we never miss an episode in my household, but with shows like Six Feet Under and The Sopranos so often being left at the Emmy altar, I wondered if Mad Men really deserved all the accolades.
After season three, I now wonder if the accolades can ever live up to the insane quality of the show. My wife insisted, about midway through the season finale, that I publicly apologize to the show for having called it overrated in the past. I apologize (but I am, in part, thinking about the January Jones GQ cover as I do it).
