The best show you're likely not watching: AMC's Mad Men. I only fell into watching it in the last few weeks because of its copious 16 Emmy award nominations. Provoked to know what the buzz was about, at least once, I set the DVR.
Wow. Luscious is the best word. The sets, the costumes, the images, the dialogue, the story. It defines, to me, What Is Sexy. From like, before, you know?
What I like best? Scene after scene after scene with what is NOT said. What is left to us to interpret, to noodle, to recognize and go "Yes!".
John Maeda's Laws of Simplicity, Law #10:
"Simplicity is about subtracting the obvious, and adding the meaningful."
Mad Men embodies this law. Check it out.
(Ok. So I'm in lust with Jon Hamm. Sue me!)
