The opening credits to Mad Men are the best thing I’ve seen on TV all year. Yes, the show is good too, but the credits, my god, the credits! I wish there were a director’s cut of the credit sequence. I haven’t been this enthralled by the opening of a show or movie since 2001: A Space Odyssey. Watch it, then watch it again. Then one more time for good measure. I would like to frame this in a flat-screen TV, nail it to my wall, and leave it playing all day long.
And don’t anyone dare say a word about Season 3. I don’t have cable and probably won’t get to see it until the end of 2010. You have been warned.
