Mad Men.

If you get the new cable channel AMC, and A) are interested in (possibly) the next big thing, or B) interested in the style of the 1960s, then check out Mad Men which is shown on Thursdays.

The NYTimes has a write-up...
The “girls” in the steno pool, the nakedly striving junior executives, the smooth-talking bosses and their stay-at-home wives have done their best to acquire the veneer of graceful gestures that stand in for real courtesy. Their mannerisms, and their sleek appurtenances, come with the turf: the steel-and-glass landscape of Madison Avenue in 1960, where burled wood and frosted-glass-panel interiors form a sumptuous backdrop against which the players stride about in sheaths and glen plaid suits.
It might make you want to dress up to go to work.

After seeing a couple episodes, I am still not quite sure if I like it or not. At least see the opening credits.
