Sometimes you can see America as it used to be in television shows. I’m not talking about the shows filmed back in the 50’s and 60’s. I don’t mean the Ozzy and Harriet shows or the Leave it To Beaver programs.
I mean modern programs like Mad Men. This is a nontraditional television show on a non-traditional cable network. Yes I like the drama, the plot and the characters. But that is not what strikes a chord with me.
You see, Mad Men is also like a canceled show called Home Front that ran on ABC from 2001 to 2003. Mad Men is like Band of Brothers which ran on HBO and was produced by Tom Hanks. Mad Men was not at all like TV show such as the reality crap we have now or the Showtime series of Queer as Folk or the L Word.
