How to date, mate and relate. Mixing race, culture and creed.
SyFy’s Defiance, AMC’s Mad Men, HBO’s Game of Thrones, and ABC’s Scandal. These are the shows I watch religiously (or almost religiously) every week, which goes to show that there is good programming out there, you just might have to cobble that programming together from several channels.
The popularity of retro TV shows like Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire, Vegas, and the buzz surrounding the summer release of the much anticipated The Great Gatsby, the retro look continues to increase in popularity as more women are sporting the hot fashions and hairstyles from a bygone era.
