Mad Men

Post by Kittaan » Thu Feb 27, 2014 10:55 pm

Season seven premiers April 7. Final season, so they will definitely fuck shit up. Looking forward to it.

As they are now 6 seasons deep, if you haven't yet watched the show and don't want spoilers, it should be obvious, but GTFO.

The first few seasons were the best. Dropped off a bit after that, but still decent. At this point, you should just wait until it's run its course before digging in anyway.

I still have yet to watch The Wire (among others), which I'm looking forward to quite a bit.

Draper is the man. The wire is fucking awesome, very underrated. It's good to watch a show with multiple views of society.

The Wire isn't underrated, a lot of critics say it's the best TV show ever (and they are right)

I can understand that. There's a pretty major cultural aspect to it. As far as the acting and writing, I think it's pretty top notch.

I know next to nothing about The Wire. Never even seen a clip, which has been pretty hard to avoid with all the hype. It's next on my list.

It's a terrific show and the dapper Mr Draper is an excellent character. The evolution of social norms and attitudes are chronicled beautifully and we are even invited, at times, to see how far we haven't come.

I am looking forward to a resolution. As much as I have enjoyed this series I do like to see things wrapped up and some final observations made.

Season is moving at a snails pace. Don needs to slam some more Canadian club and fuck shit up. It's brewing, I think I can see where this is going but we'll see

Don has been fairly pitiful for this season and I have been waiting for the old Don to return. Last episode he embarked upon his comeback.

Megan is a trollop! :)

This will soon be remedied....

@ All - I have been digging the new 1/2 season so far. It is building really well. Megan is indeed a trollop, but looks like she's regretting it? She's been put through the ringer in her defense...

God, you weren't already prepared for that bullshit?

At least the "1/2 season" (such utter bullshit) ended in a logical place. It felt "right" IF you're going to take a break. It's been amazing so far. However, taking an entire year break simply to milk ratings (that you likely won't get anyway...) is BULLSHIT.

I'm sorry but BlackHole said it. Managed watch three and a half seasons until I decided to stop.

I don't know how you could get past Season 3 and not be in for the long haul! For my money, this is one of the greatest shows I have ever seen.

I love this show too Joey. And this song (well the performance is most of it).

It has taken me awhile to get around to this series, and I have only watched the first 3 episodes, but my initial impression is that this will be a great series. I originally thought that this show was a boring time piece on 1950/60's advertising. Instead I watched 3 episodes that expertly captured the cultural mores and human interactions of that period of history. This is a show for those who remember those times. Some people may wax woefully about the good old days of the early 60's, but for most of us THIS was the reality. On Pinoy tv show, The actors behave as if they stepped out of 1960 complete with their cynicism, twisted morality, sexism, and racism. Thankfully most of us have matured beyond the behavior portrayed in 'Mad Men'. For the rest, this show will be a painful reminder.
