By this time next week, I’m going to be set up with my first TiVo and, for the first time in four years, will have cable television hooked up again, so that I’ll finally be able to start becoming the TV addict that I’ve been trying to suppress for the past few years. And my first order of business will be to start recording all episodes of AMC’s “Mad Men,” the newest episode of which is airing tonight at 10PM/9c. Here’s the synopsis for the 12th episode from the show’s site:
On election night, the Sterling Cooper staff pulls a rowdy all-nighter while watching the returns. Pete’s ambitions cause him to directly challenge Don.
For those of you who are like me and don’t yet have cable, you can simply download the episodes on iTunes and get yourself all caught up. And if also as much as a nerd as I am, you’ll probably enjoy listening to this recent interview with the creator of the show, Matthew Weiner, on NPR since he’s also one of the brains behind “The Sopranos.”
