The problem is, it feels just downright unseemly to be part of a cult following. Where did all of these other folks come from, horning in on our '60s fascination? Do they, like us, own a 1964-issue black patent Barbie case, inhabited by a 1964 (disheveled) bouffant-haired Barbie, stewardess edition? A 1964 World s Fair keychain (a mod gold globe)? A wardrobe of '60s-era cocktail dresses?
Besides, what about the wild contrast between the show's 1963 black desk phones and the Mad Men Cult's cell phones and laptops, or the frantic tweeting about their every thought/impression throughout the broadcast? Isn't that dichotomous? Or is it actually a common thread: an artificial conversation about the artificial world depicted in an allegedly artificial time? Still...we can't wait for next week's episode. Shhhhh.
