The Greatest Show on Television

…is Mad Men. Amanda at Pandagon riffs on it a bit here, to which I would simply add, first, that she’s nailed the context, and second, that if you’re not watching, you’re missing out.

If you have time, watch twice.

In the scene above, the closeted ad exec Sal can’t bring himself to consummate his interest in a similarly oriented out-of-town client. And it all takes place between the lines.

It’s just great stuff.

P.S. Here’s a link to a non-official blog all about things Mad.
