"It's not like there's some magic machine that makes identical copies of things." Heh. They were definitely trying almost too hard to make sure you knew it was set in the 50s (sexism and racism and anti-Semitism, oh my!), but I went with it. Hopefully, they won't need to be so obvious to establish the setting as the series goes on, though.

Anyway, I liked it and I'm glad I looked up what channel AMC was to watch it . The characters are going to be the real draw as it gets into the storylines a little deeper.

I'm just now catching it on reruns after "Breaking Bad" and it looks like a great show. I recognize several attitudes since I was a teen in the late 50's and 60's. EVERYONE did smoke back then, it was almost a social thing to do.

I wish they would reference some of the music on the show.

In my opinion, the Stones created what we know as "rock" music.
