14. Me - I dont have a TV! Just finished Route 66 - that was fun. Now starting on Mad Men Season 1-
Edited on Wed Nov-02-11 03:40 AM by Kashka-Kat
Love that late-50s/early 60s thing! One interesting thing about Route 66 is that it was filmed on location in various places around the country -roads, scenery, towns as they just don't exist anymore. Kind of a sanitized squaresville version of the beat generation - and some REALLY HOKEY scripts - but that's half the fun. Every once in a while an exceptionally good script, like Todd accidentally tripping out on some unidentified psychedelic drug. Another one about black jazz musicians reuniting at a singer's deathbed for one last jam - that was very nice.
