Not Mad

I recently started watching Mad Men.
I had heard good things about it, but had never seen it myself until it became available on Netflix streaming.
The first episode was hard to get into, but I figured one episode wasn't really giving it a chance, so I watched more.
Seven episodes in and I'm not really seeing what people have been raving about. I mean, sure, there's 1960's charm and a few good looking actors, but like my husband said, if it were set in present day, it would probably have flopped after the first season.
I'm going to continue watching because I'm not a quitter.
But please, please tell me that some of you watch this show & that it gets better?

I'm not going to lie to doesnt really get all that much better. No lie, I spent the first 2 seasons waiting for something dramatic to happen (Don slapping Betty for being a biatch...anything) but nothing ever happened. It's a really dry show but it's well written. The story line does get a little more in depth but I wasnt a fan of how last season ended. Even after all that though, I'm still excited about the new season next year.
