What You’re Saying About Mad Men‘s Nostalgic Factor

Every week, honors the Talk forum and blog commenters by quoting them in the weekly “What You’re Saying” post, then awarding those who have commented as registered users prizes like a Mad Men poster or coffee mug (limit one per person).

For many fans, Mad Men is more than great television. It’s a walk down memory lane. The show’s costumes, hairstyles, sets, soundtrack and smartly executed references to historic events trigger very specific memories for certain viewers. Because of that, many Maddicts see Mad Men as a polished reflection of their own — and their parents’ — life and times. Check out the forum topics below and join a conversation about girdles, curfews, and telephones that rang and rang and rang.
