The countdown has begun for the third season of Mad Men, the popular AMC Network series. The season would hit our TV screens on August 16, 2009. And, the network has released a short promo of the upcoming season in order to let the fans know what Mad Men season 3 would be like.
Did you order season 2? If not, I have no need to hold on to the DVDs any longer.
My season should, as Msolga says, arrive soon......and I am happy to lend it to her once seen, so we shpuld be ok.
The same applies to TV shows, including the otherwise excellent “Mad Men.” It is rare to find a review of the show that does not rave about the accuracy of its early 1960s styling, yet the “Mad Men” team is woefully sloppy when it comes to typography. Mark Simonson, a graphic designer in St. Paul, Minnesota, blogs about typographic misdemeanors on his Web site, www.marksimonson.com, and he once catalogued the flaws in “Mad Men.” The 1992 typeface, Lucida Handwriting, appears in an ad in the opening titles. Gill Sans, a British typeface designed in 1930 but rarely used in the United States until the 1970s, is used for office signage. A lipstick ad features one wholly appropriate 1958 font, Amazone, but two incongruous ones, 1978’s Balmoral and 1980’s Fenice. He noted lots of other clunkers too, but admits that he has spotted fewer new errors in the most recent episodes of “Mad Men.”
“I guess they must be doing a better job,” Mr. Simonson said
it comes as a surprise that Mad Men has been so sloppy
