With the late-night feedings, I have been discovering new television shows to watch. Gary and I have gotten addicted to two show in particular: "Mad Men" and "Swingtown." I think that I especially enjoy the attention to detail in both of the shows. "Mad Men" is an AMC show and takes place at an ad agency in 1960. I love the clothes! However, the sexism (and smoking!) can be hard to take. "Swingtown" is a network show on Friday nights and takes place in 1976. The writing is clever and I find it hard to believe that I was one-year-old when all of that was taking place. Both are terrific shows!
We are also anxiously awaiting our Netflix of the second season of "Dexter." Who knew a show with a serial killer protagonist could be so compelling and enjoyable?
(By the way, I just finished TEN DAYS IN THE HILLS by Jane Smiley. She is a terrific writer. I was pleasantly surprised. The book takes place over a period of ten days following the beginning of the current Iraq war. I had lots of thoughts about "if we knew then what we know now..." Good read.)
