I have recently noticed a few Front Page Posts that used the TV show Mad Men as a cultural touchstone against which all manner of things need be compared.
I am sure it is a fine TV show, but to those of us that don't follow it, referencing it from largely unrelated posts is more than a bit frustrating. To my mind, this practice causes many posts that would be excellent on their own primary merits to be diluted with secondary conversations about the TV show, and about the appropriateness of said TV show being in the post.
I just want to open a discussion. I am not calling anyone out.
