Ok, I've jumped on the Mad Men train. I'm hooked. I new I would be, just needed some time to sit down and watch all the episodes. The fashion, ads, characters, everything I need all wrapped up in a neat little bow. I found some trivia on the show. Here goes:
--Talia Balsam, John Slattery's real-life wife, portrays his wife in the series.
--In 2008, this series and "Damages" (2007) became the first basic-cable shows nominated in the best drama series category at the Emmys.
--Glen, the neighbor's young son who forms a connection with Betty, is portrayed by Marten Holden Weiner, the son of series creator Matthew Weiner.
--Both actors portraying the principal partners at the Sterling and Cooper advertising agency - John Slattery (Roger Sterling) and Robert Morse (Bertram Cooper) hail from Newton Massachusetts.
--The monolithic facade of Sterling Cooper's building is the same used for the UBS tower in Network (1976).
--Sally's teacher is first introduced on the show dancing around a maypole with her students. The teacher character is named Suzanne Farrell, after one of the most famous American ballerinas of the 1960s, '70s, and '80s.
--John Slattery auditioned for the role of Don Draper before being asked to play Roger Sterling.
