you are, of course, watching Mad Men?

and you've got to love the women, especially when we see what we awkwardly refer to as "real" or "curvy" women. i mean, the stripper in episode one? she has a tiny little "crease" that we see in a shot of her back ... such a startling and delightful surprise, that i was hooked then and there.

actually, these actresses are more like the women we are and know, but for film/video/image standards, we call them "curvy" or "big" or whatever (blah). and i realize that the show is going for a realistic vision of women in the late 50's-early 60's, so maybe there's nothing to discuss here. still. nice to see. fabulous show.

here is a major scene, featuring the show's radiant Christina Hendricks as Joan (office manager). Any actress (especially this "curvy" one, i.e., "me") would die to play this:

Joan's my favorite, and the Pedersen fam LOVES Mad Men
that dress is pretty serious. i mean hot. right? and her delivery in this clip is deadly, imho.

Don's wife if all Grace Kelly. very lovely, but, um, why did she give in to that kid's fetishistic request for piece of her hair? that was kinda kinky :)
