I suggest adding it to your DVR / TiVO right now. It was fantastic.
I really wasn’t expecting the type of humor that they mined relentlessly about how different times were back then - the rampant sexism, racism, smoking, drinking, etc. But they didn’t over do it IMO - a quick joke and then they moved on. Sure, there was some broad humor, but at the same time I believed that’s the way it was. Some highlights (stop now if you plan on seeing a repeat of the first episode):
“It’s not like there’s some magical machine that can make an identical copy.”
Mel from Flight of the Conchords as one of the switchboard operators.
The gyno that smoked the entire time and told her he’d take the contraception away if she turned into a “strumpet.”
I loved how the guy said “I won’t have a woman talk to me this way” and walked out. And he was pitching to his client who happened to be the daughter of the owner of the company.
The pitcher of bloody marys, shrimp cocktails and constant smoking during the meetings.
The guy putting Alka Seltzer into his bourbon at 10 in the morning.
The comment about “Don’t be afraid of all this technology” - and it was a typewriter.
The constant pressure to find a husband as the number one goal of every woman in sight.
