Though it is a pretty widespread belief that good TV disappears in the summer, I am finding it increasingly untrue. I just saw part of a special on AMC about their new series Mad Men, from writer and executive producer Matthew Weiner of the Sopranos. It's set in 1960s New York, and the team behind it has been very meticulous about getting all the historical details right. It premieres Thursday July 19 at 10 pm. There's more info about it here, including a streaming version of the behind-the-scenes special.
