Mad Men

Season 4 premiered tonight. I would have bumped the season three thread but I titled it "season 3," which no longer seems appropriate.

Who saw it? It was a stupendous hour of television. All sorts of shit has happened in the eleven months that have passed (in-story) between the formation of Sterling Cooper Draper Price and the beginning of season 4. The premeir was stepped in the juices of the sexual revolution. It also had a lot to say about the increasing role of the media in the success or failure of things. It was great to see Don fail a little bit, and it was exciting to consider the future implications at the end of Don crafting a public/media persona that is completely unlike his actual personality.

Kudos.
It isn't obscure, it does fairly well in the ratings, and a new episode aired as recently as Tuesday.

I do.

I've been cable-less since January and, essentially, rely on word of mouth for new shows. Honestly, my first thought was that WC was a Mad Men fansite.

Not sure I liked the diary as narration device, but it's good to see the writers finally ended the downward spiral arc.

The voiceovers work because you don't get the sense that Don is being completely honest with himself. He's not really writing as Dick Whitman. It felt like he was trying to convince himself of things.

Lots of new stylistic stuff in the most recent episode. Besides the voiceover there was the Stones song, the alcohol craving zoom effect, swimming motif, etc.

As a 26yr Old whom is throughly confused by the 60's this episode provided yet another confusing look into this era in time.

Just the entire time period and the change that was incurred not only as a nation but on a global level just makes my head spin....

maybe it sounds silly to some of you - but this is sincerely how I feel and the only way I can think in my mind that would have made any sense of it was to have lived through it...

Agree on the voiceovers, but I doubt it's a technique that Weiner et. al. carry over.

The swimming thing was pretty obvious (but still effective), water as rebirth/cleansing.

Yeah, I doubt it shows up again. Maybe once more in another season or something.
