.@SummersAnne Series sits on a pile awaiting me to steel myself, grit teeth, finish watching..glorification of the era somehow disturbed me.

.@SummersAnne 2/2..felt like the all too recent history I have spent my life fighting to vanquish not valorise. May revisit #MadMen one day

.@RNBigIdeas @SummersAnne and the Mad Men reference came just at the very moment I was thinking 'I didn't finish that series because..." 1/2
