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.

Southland is doing a slow burn on me, that that last episode was some of the most HARROWING shit I've ever seen outside premium cable or the movies.

The whole time I was like 'is this shit REALLY happening on my TV screen?'

In this most recent episode, I may be totally on peyote, and may offend some's political sensibilities. But between her new hairdo, her fashion sense, and her facial features, Peggy struck me as almost a precise hybrid of Margaret Thatcher and Hillary Clinton. Wonder if Weiner was going for something in that vein.

Also, her assertiveness throughout was breathtaking, most particularly when the client said about selling a sea of drunk college guys on the fun of their product; 'I don't know how to do that' and she replied 'and I do, . . . give me a couple of days.'

This has been sticking with me, the M20 is not the most advanced Leica in 1967-1968, but if was the bane of Vietnam water buffalo according to a certain PFC.

I think she's trying to be Don, but it's not fitting her personality, and then it seemed to strike her as she watched Abe listening to the headphones.

I still have nightmares from that Southland episode. Unreal scene after unreal scene. Can't believe it was on TV.

That's a different and valid take, although I disagree with the sentiment that he cares about his family, albeit, children. I don't think he gives a shit. Otherwise, he'd be far more involved in their lives.

I think he cares, but just can't demonstrate it.

Yeah, this season has been disappointing, to say the least.

I've had my fill of Don being self-destructive. Oh there's been some high points in there - "That's the most deft self-immolation I've ever seen; I didn't know you were capable of being that bad" being my favorite thus far, but there's been too little of that and too much of Don banging his buddy's wife. He's sliding closer and closer to appearing beyond any kind of sustainable happiness.

Don's always been the most unlikeable, likable guy on television. Or maybe he's the most likeable, unlikeable guy on television. In either event, he makes it easy for us to cringe and want him to do better for himself. But with yet another tryst, this time with the spouse of someone that could be a close friend (in a life where he only has one or two of those), you just get closer and closer to telling him to get ****ed and hoping that he walks in on Megan banging her co-star just to put him down a peg or two.

And Pete's character has just become outwardly pathetic. I guess that's the natural outgrowth of a guy that has always had a sleazy, self-loathing streak to him finally coming into significant power, but it doesn't make it any easier to stomach.

It's mostly become a show full of devoutly unhappy people that make it easy to hope they all somehow die in the same subway accident. There's no more of the comic relief provided by Roger or the glimpses of brilliantly talented but tortured 'alpha-male' that make us forget that Don's probably a cad.

Mad Men is slowly turning into a snuff film.
