Consider some of the main characters in this popular TV series.

Set in the 60s, the primary couple live in an upscale suburban neighborhood house with a beautiful blond stay-at-home Mom. This Mom is married to the brilliant creative director of what we would now call a boutique advertising agency. One of the partners in this marriage withholds information about their past from their partner.

Meanwhile, our creative person works at an agency headed by a hard drinking, quick witted silver-haired account man who is constantly angling for the next big deal. In between their day-to-day life, there are plenty of client outings with lots of hard drinking and cigarette smoking. 

The series we are are referring to of course is Bewitched!

As a fan of AMC's Mad Men, the series is building to what many hope will be a climactic conclusion. While many viewers might not find the ending they want - think of the Sopranos or Lost - we can't help but wonder if Mad Men creator and showrunner Matthew Weiner looked to Darrin, Sam and of course Larry Tate for his inspiration.
