Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
So is this any way to start a new season? That’s the question asked by Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky as he turns his attention toward the AMC series “Mad Men."
It has entered its fifth year minus any 3-D or parallel universe stories. Nobody is trying to become the world’s best singer, dancer or whatever. It even lacks efforts to throw people off islands or show detectives moving back and forth in time.
Instead it settles on a 1960s advertising agency with characters and plots anyone associated with the media of that era will be able to identify,
Sokolsky praises the smooth tone of the presentation, noting it is not particularly exciting, but it doesn’t have to be. And, while it is unlikely to maintain its current level for more than another season, “It could be fun” to watch its journey.
