‘Mad Men’ madness sweeps the city

Posted at 3:00 pm, March 27, 2012 in TV

Mad Men (Season 5)Time Out towers is in the grip of a ‘Mad Men’ epidemic. We’ve swapped the DVDs, cooed over press shots, swooned over our Jon Hamm interview, rerewatched season 4 and now we are chomping at the bit for the new series to start this evening (March 27) at 9pm. The mania has set in, the sweats have started and the only way to calm the hysteria is a dose of Don and co. I’m not ashamed to say that I have missed the old gang: Joan’s walk, Pete’s whining, Peggy’s fringe, Roger’s sleaze, Betty’s tantrums, Don’s charm and the unmistakable sound of clinking of ice in glasses. Unfortunately for many though, it’s only showing on Sky Atlantic, but fingers crossed the DVD will follow soon after. Be warned: ‘Mad Men’ is highly addictive and may damage your social life. Sonya Barber
