Any other fans of The Sopranos looking forward to the new AMC series Mad Men? The same producers worked on both shows, and I'm interested to see what they've come up with post-Tony. I found a trailer for it here:

Love the retro feel, and the sets look great! Keeping my fingers crossed for this one

It looks interesting. It won't have the HBO-level grit of "Sopranos," but that shouldn't matter.

Vincent Kartheiser.

I'm not really familiar with the gamut of his work, but he was impressive in a particular independent film I saw years ago.

Can't wait for the Mad Men season finale tomorrow night! Don Draper has now become one of my top favorite TV characters of all time. Such a nostalgic show...can't wait for season 2;)

I found a quick spot for the finale here:

D'oh!

Even though it's the "off-season" for "Mad Men," I was re-watching episodes of this on AMC a few days ago and remembered how good it was. More of you should watch it!

It's one of my favorite shows on TV right now. From the writing to the production design to the opening credits, it's just well-made on every level, and it explores a lot of social issues without being overwritten or overly preachy. It's a shame that it's on AMC, because I feel like it would have gotten much more attention in a bigger venue.

Here are a couple of links if you're interested in a little more information:

Vincent Kartheiser is also (in?)famous for his role as Angel's son Conor. He plays a rebellious young turk in "Mad Men" as well, but the role is actually quite different, and I was a little surprised at first to see him looking and behaving so, well, differently than how I was used to seeing him on "Angel."

Too right. The whole production just oozes style and that credit sequence is my favorite on TV at the moment. (Although sometimes the writing is a bit uneven and a little lacking in the subtlety department).

I've been watching this from the beginning, but I missed the last half of the season, but I have them on my DVR. When I get a chance, I plan to catch up. Whoever said "oozes style" was right. This show is awesome, and deserving of some of the recognition it has received.

Yuppers. They're producing another scripted show too, called "Breaking Bad," which is about two dudes who run a meth lab. It'll be interesting to see how that one turns out.

I like this show.


I had to write that down before I forget.


Only half-way through the season, but it's shaping up really nicely, I thought. They've built a pretty beautiful foundation from which to play and expand the characters and storylines, a nice mix of stylization and genuine pathos. It's hitting most, if not nearly all the beats for me, so far in.

Hopefully a nice replacement for that top-tier character drama shaped hole in my viewing schedule, in the wake of Six Feet Under and The Sopranos...

I finally finished watching this show and I was completely impressed as others have said.

Excellent storylines with a healthy amount of insight into the birth of modern consumerist culture.

Looking forward to Season 2.

I love this show. LOVE it! For all the reasons already stated. But I do have a nit pick. I hate that they felt the need to give Don Draper a convuluted back story. To me that's always just a lazy way to make a character "interesting," and with a show like this it's totally unnecessary cause Don Draper is already such a blast to watch anyways (and he has an uncanny resemblance to Deniro). I just wish the writers could have bypassed that silliness and trusted the character as he's developed within the show, rather than thinking they had to lean on an over-developed backstory.

But it's a nitpick. Like I say, love the show, enjoying season 2. Speaking of, wonder when they're going to get around to showing the outcome of Draper finding out his wife knows he's a cheater, you'd think he'd have talkedto the psychologist by now.

Ive been watching it but not on sunday nights. I definitely don't think it's upto snuff this season and most of the plot lines feel a bit cliched or easy. That being said it's still a good show just not as good.

Just finished season 1. Brilliant. Only thing that bothered me a bit was: the sudden fatness of Peggy and then the sudden baby boom. And noone notices it at work. I did wonder for 2 episodes why she was suddenly so bloated. Loved the closing image of the season with Draper alone on the stairs. Catching up with season 2 coming weeks.

The guys noticed Peggy got big, they made some mean comment.

Does it bother anyone else how they show you a character or story and then it's like it never happened and you wonder will there ever be more because sometimes there isn't. And there is a sense of general uneasiness about the whole show, it puts me on edge because I don't always know what to expect. I love it passionately and I think this season is just as good as the first. Better even because I finally got upset about the way Betty feels about her kids and then when Don laid his hands on her. Oh my gosh I didn't breath.

I could go on about it for hours, but for this site I think I've already said too much.

It is the perfect show.

Okay, one more thing. I love that the girls bodies fit the time period, they look so pretty. That scene with the bikini fashion show, oh my gosh I wish I had that sort of hip to waist ratio. Joan has to be padded up, because there is no way someone can be small in the places she's small and round in the places she's round. She looks so fucking hot.

If you saw her at the emmy's they arent padding her at all. My girlfriend had thought the same thing, but then we saw some recent pics and it was definitely a no. Also, Joan's clothes don't really seem to fit correctly this season, as the other girls are leaving the 50s styles she is hanging on as the dresses get less and less flattering for her body type.

To each his own I guess, you think less flattering, I think wow she looks sexy I kind of want to touch her. I think she's lucky she's looking like that all all on her own. I like Joan dressing like she does while the other girls get more 60's cute.

I'm just glad she's really engaged. I couldn't recall seeing it happen and I was full of angst that she was making it all up and what was that going to lead to. I don't know if they wrote it like that on purpuse or I just somehow zoned out during a proposal scene.

I do think Joan is sexy but her dresses look all bunchy in places they shouldnt. Smarter people than me have commented on it as well. The other girls moved into more 60s attire as you mentioned especially don's new secretary. Joan is just isnt progressing as the other women are and that body type is slowly fading away as the definition of beauty. That being said I do think she is a sexy woman but what she is wearing hugs her body in all the wrong places.

You didnt zone out. It happened somewhere in the 2 year gap between seasons.

They hinted at it quite early in the season; the best and probably initial clue (besides her sleeping with Pete) was while she was still thin. She got frustrated with something, ran over to the sandwich cart, ordered a danish and crammed it down.

Right then and there, I was like, "Oh, she's pregnant!"

Then did you doubt yourself? I thought that too and then I kept wondering if maybe I was just supposed to think that she was pregnant and really she was just fatter. That's one of the reasons I love the show so much, I'm always wondering.

And it teaches. When they threw the trash all over after the picnic I had a shocked amusement and then I thought they must not have been into promoting no littering back then or the Draper's wouldn't be doing such things. I went online and found out it wasn't until the mid 60's that it became a part of the culture to prevent litter. That sort of attention to detail fascinates me and draws me in.

I am dying to see what goes on with Peggy and the priest next week.

I cry at some point in just about every episode, but it's not usually over something sad or upsetting, but my heart broke more than ever for Joan this week. I am not usually much bothered by rape on screen, not that she was raped, but really she sort of was. That's what made it so upsetting. It was almost traumatizing watching that.

Saying no and being forced into sex is rape for sure. Her doctor fiancee needs to be the agressor in order to "function."

I really loved peggy's reasoning for getting the office "I'm sleeping with Don." I definitely think Joan is really jealous of her at this point. Joan wanted to be the script reader and it was her opportunity for getting out of the secretary pool but she didnt push for it and it was given to a random.

Joan is totally jealous of Peggy. It's so frustrating that Joan is so competent and able to manipulate things her way, but when it counts, when it's more than just covering something up or being catty she didn't follow through. Why doesn't she believe in herself in that way? Oh Joan. It almost seemed like Joan's jealousy of Peggy was turning towards awe and respect in that last interaction.

If forced to say Joan was or wasn't raped, I would go with raped, but it's so weird because it's her fiance and even in our day and age it would be difficult for people to accept that as rape. It was awful, is what it was. He does need to be the aggressor. Now that I'm thinking about it I wonder if that wasn't just him getting back at her a little bit because of her behavior at home the night before and his suspiciousness growing after seeing her talk to Roger. My heart breaks for that woman. I am so glad she's just a character.

Snow Apple, it is interesting you think about rape this way. Being forced to have sex against your will is indeed rape, at least where I'm from. Canada's rape laws were changed a number of years ago to address precisely this point. It doesn't matter if its your boyfriend, fiance or spouse, its still rape and its still illegal. Maybe its different in the States. I certainly hope not.

I just wanted to chime in and echo my love for Madmen. Such a great show. And like Snow Apple mentioned, I love how they nod to the different views of the time which are now outrageously politically incorrect - like the littering. My favourite example was last season when someone's kids were running around (I can't remember if they were Don's) and one of them had a plastic dry cleaning bag over her head. The mom stops the kid and you think she's going to chew the kid out for being unsafe but instead, the mom says some thing like "Is that my dry cleaning bag? My clean dress better not be on the floor." Classic.

Also, I have a man-crush on Don Draper. Does that make me Ghey? :?

It's not different. It would definitely still be rape here. Not in that time, however.

Having a crush on Don is perfectly normal for all people.

I know that it was rape, but like stereosforgeeks said it wouldn't be in that time. I think I was thrown off because that situation is so unfamiliar to me. It took time to process.

I thought this last episode was tad predictable. Good stuff went down and itll be cool to see how things shake out.

I definitely think Ducks idea for the company doesn't fly with PPL. He'll be out next season or definitely on the back burner.

It seemed like the English guys were indicating that Duck isn't the man for the job. Even if they do put him in charge there is no way it's going to last. Oh his face when he found out Don didn't have a contract.

So, did Don mean what he said to Pete? At first I thought he was just digging himself out of a hole, but then when he said that about not being able to get what you want right when you want it he seemed so sincere. Like he really has confidence in Pete.

Also, what did Peggy say to Pete exactly? I was so anxious about what she was going to say I couldn't comprehend all that she did say. Then I got so upset by what I did understand that I didn't want to rewind it.

She said that she could have had him if she wanted him, but that wasn't what she wanted for herself.

That's the part I understood, that she could've had him if she wanted him and then she told him why. But then after that I didn't catch everything. I guess it doesn't matter because there is no way they're going to be together. Especially if he shoots himself. Which just CAN'T happen.

I don't like Pete, but I really felt for him, I wanted to hold him and nurse him through his pain. Peggy kept her mouth shut this long, she should've kept on doing so. She's a selfish little thing.

I just read at imdb that the toddler we were meant to think of as Peggy's is actually her sister's kid. I am so confused right now. I mean why did her sister single him out when Peggy went over there as if Peggy should go see just him?

I think we were lead to believe that the little boy was Peggy's, so that the final revelation would be more dramatic. It also adds to the irony that Pete wouldn't adopt, because he wanted a child of his own blood, and the one place where he could find a child of his blood was at an orphanage. HAHAHAHA.
