We're flattered if a bit bemused that a number of you want to know what we think of the hit AMC TV series, Mad Men; a series that seems to be on the minds and lips and at the fingertips of just about everyone in the mainstream media lately.
Well, we can't tell you what we think of the series as we have no access to AMC on our cable service, and therefore have never so much as glimpsed even a single moment of the series. We pay our cable provider a whopping $14.95 a month for what's called "Antenna Service" which service provides access only to those local channels the cable companies are by law compelled to carry. While it's true that about two years ago the cable company's installation guys made a boo-boo while installing cable service for someone else in our building, and mistakenly gave us access to channels we're not supposed to be getting (they did that once before some eight years ago, but after about a year or so, caught their mistake, and returned our access to what we were actually paying for), but AMC is not among them as it's among those channels that our cable company has decreed requires a cable converter box to view; a device that under our circumstances we clearly cannot ask to have installed.
So, dear readers who inquired, we thank you for your interest, but we're helpless to accommodate your inquiries.
That is all.
As you were.
