I felt bad that he seemed to be saying all the things that I was feeling about shit and he turned out to be nuts. Dude threw a few good truth punches between the goobery while he was in the ring though.

How is this season so far? Debating whether to catch up on the first few or just wait and binge once it's over.

Play catch up. You don't want no spoilers.

One particular character from the past pops in and it's pure gold.

Caught up now. Is this not the funniest Mad Men season ever? Certainly not talking about the plot, but the dialogue. Everyone getting right to the point.

I tried watching Season 4 after taking a multiyear hiatus from the show. It was the most boring thing I can remember watching in a long time. I couldn't get through one episode.

We have some friends who hold viewing parties for the season premiere each year at their place and attendance keeps going down, wonder if they'll even do one this year. Regardless, looking forward to seeing how it ends.


1. Breaking Bad finale
2. The Suitcase
3. Boardwalk Empire Easter episode
4. Game of Thrones season 1 finale


Do you mean the second-to-last episode of the first GOT season? That was the one with the beheading.

That's the one, yeah.
I guess the Red Wedding was bigger to some people, but I sort of lost interest by then.

I still can't get over that Ponyboy Curtis looks like a mountain man now.

The finale ruled. I was head-faked RIGHT up until the end.

As pointed out in this New Yorker article, the era was rife with airplane hijackings so maybe he'll get hijacked by some crazy guy with a vile of acid?

I totally missed a lot of the foreshadowing about Don Draper's ending. Didn't even pick up on most of it until reading that article, to be honest. So good.

I'm glad the show had an ending this brilliant. Feels like there's a vacuum in quality TV now. Anyone have any recommendations, or promising-looking upcoming stuff?

I dug it. Man it hits hard, this show. The inextricable mingling of product and existential struggle, of business and and truth. Perfect last beat. If you can at all manage, make millions like Don before going awol. I missed that step.

I liked the show. I watched most of it at will, long after they aired which makes it easier.

At the end, were they implying that he was going to go back and write that Coke commercial?

Don Draper: recidivist with alcohol, women, and advertising. Has the honest moments up to the brink, then slips through the escape hatch.
