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.

The female characters are some of the most interesting to me at this point. They're so well written. And the sexual politics are play are fascinating. There's this constant questioning of who is really being exploited/used.

Very cool.

I'm on the 2nd to last episode of season 3, the one where JFK died. Holy shit, I teared up just seeing their portrayal of the reactions to his death. I just watched a show on 9/11 and the Yankees last night and I was tearing up the same way. I wasn't alive when he was killed and I never even thought about how the country felt when that happened, I'm sure it was the same as 9/11.

Well ****ing done.

Ok, just finished season 4. Why the **** did I wait so long to watch this show? So good.

I never thought that I could hate a bitch-wife more than Skylar White, but Betty Draper takes the cake.

I didn't think season 4 was as good as season 2 and especially not season 3, but I think "The Suitcase" (s04e07) is probably the single best episode of the show thus far. I thought Anna's ghost was a little cheesy, but the rest of that episode was spectacular. When Don burst out crying, my eyes teared up.

Same happened in the JFK episode in season 3. TV shows don't really do that to me.

I was also upset that Paul Kinsey didn't make a single appearance in season 4.

Harry Crane
Grandpa Gene

Christina Hendricks didn't win best supporting actress in a Drama Series. I'm wondering why the girl who plays Peggy wasn't nominated.
