Screening: Mad Men
Glamorous apparel. Hidden lives. Simmering tensions. And lots and lots of whiskey. Such is the world of “Mad Men,” AMC’s Emmy-winning TV series that will be screened by Advertise This!, Princeton’s advertising and marketing club. Set in the ’60s in the fictional ad agency Sterling Cooper, the program is a pitch-perfect period piece created by some of the finest writers, directors and actors in television today. With free popcorn, drinks and candy provided, you’d really have to be a mad man not to come see the first episode of this acclaimed show.
Friday, 9 p.m.
