10 thoughts on “Can’t even watch Mad Men reruns

  1. I never saw it and now I never will. But I used to like The Hour and I can never watch that now. Even though the betrayed wife triumphed in the end.

  2. i really kind of stopped watching tv. Mostly recorded shows now that i can fast forward thru anything i need to.. Sucks right.. I mean it really feels like the betrayed spouse is the only one suffering consequences of an affair we didnt even get to enjoy! haha! lifes unfair. A simple thing like tv shows being take away is so screwed up. But I see now how affairs are alll over the place now. Its ridiculous..

  3. Affairs are EVERYWHERE on TV. How did we not notice it before?? I very rarely watch TV now, I can’t read and music is mostly painful, thats why I’m on here for hours at a time! It really does feel as tho we are the ones doing the time for crimes we didn’t commit. Where’s the justice in that??

  4. I FEEL EXACTLY THE SAME WAY!!!! Thank you for writing this. I have been so excited about the season premier in a couple weeks, but at the same time I worry that I will never be able to watch the show again without having a meltdown. I think I am definitely going to try. Even though Peter and I used to watch it together, and even though Peter turned out to be a flaming pile of Don Draper, I don’t want to let him ruin the show for me. Will let you know how it goes if I manage it.

    Ditto, ditto and ditto. TV, books, music, movies – I couldn’t handle any of it at the beginning. It does get better.

    • It’s the adultery. Scandal, Mad Men – those have adultery as the major themes. I’m sure there are a few others but just can’t come to mind.

      It’s the glorification of the affair that hurts me. and now I empathize with the betrayed wife.
