'Mad Men' goes in one era, out the other

The Baltimore Sun

For AMC's Mad Men, the network's wry summer drama about life, love and identity at a mid-century-era Madison Avenue advertising agency, the actors appear smooth-shaven and dress in skinny neckties and cordovan shoes. Their characters drink early and often.

The actresses, trussed in tight dresses, wear pointy "bullet bras" and painful screw-on earrings. Their characters care less about careers than making a good catch and moving to Connecticut.

On TV Mad Men premieres at 10 tonight on AMC.
