Mad Men Returns

It’s been a long wait but MAD MEN finally returns to television tonight and like many fans of the show, I’m really looking forward to watching the premiere on AMC. The show’s popularity seems to have tripled since it went on hiatus and this week every outlet imaginable was offering stories about MAD MEN and it’s impact on design trends, fashion, etc. I thought I’d collect some of my favorite links to various stories about the show and share them with Mid-Century Living readers.

First up, here’s a link to a piece I wrote in 2010 for the Turner Classic Movies’ blog with a few recommended viewing suggestions for MAD MEN fans looking for something to watch during the hiatus (or in-between episodes) of the show.
