It’s time to start being self-conscious about the way you dress, ladies and gentlemen — “Mad Men” is coming to Netflix Instant tomorrow!
From the company press release:
Netflix, Inc., the world’s leading Internet subscription service for
enjoying movies and TV shows, and Lionsgate, a leading global
entertainment company, today announced a multiyear syndication deal in
which Lionsgate has licensed the first four seasons of its Emmy
Award-winning series “Mad Men” to be watched instantly by Netflix
members starting July 27, with additional seasons being added annually
after they complete airing on their respective seasons on the AMC
How should you celebrate this? We’ve got some ideas:
–Invite your female protege to your house to watch an episode with you. Be a jerk to her for a while before having a heart-to-heart talk.
–Fix yourself a Manhattan before you watch an episode. Stare outside your window with winsome ennui until it finishes buffering.
–Invite a self-conscious friend over. Respond to everything they say with “What?”
–Watch “The Adjustment Bureau” between episodes and get everything really confused.
–Watch the “30 Rock” arc with Jon Hamm and get even more confused.
–Create a Vincent Kartheiser marathon by watching the episode where Pete’s father dies, followed by “Dandelion,” “Crime and Punishment in Suburbia,” “Bad Seed” and selected late-period episodes of “Angel.”
–Neglect your children while you watch the first three seasons. Make a token effort to reconnect with them by letting them watch the fourth with you.
–Watch the third season while riding around on a lawnmower.
–Dress up in a swanky suit or dress to watch some episodes, before realized you’re putting on a costume to watch a video on a freaking laptop.
