Am I going Mad... Men?

Postby quix » 22 Aug 2017, 21:18

Has there really never been a thread about Mad Men?

I know I'm late to the party... but I love it!

I'm more enthralled by it than I was with Breaking Bad.

I'm sure there was but I don't remember it. I loved the series. I do think it tailed off somewhere after season 4 I think, but those first few series are perhaps the best TV I've seen. I was hooked from the very first scene of the first episode.

It's superb.

I like stopping the show randomly on pause and almost every time I've done so the frozen scene is a perfect photograph. The directing, styling and cinematography alone is stunning.

And Don Draper's character and his misdemeanours is endlessly fascinating. A psychological treasure trove.

I recall a pretty large ongoing thread about it when it was on.

three or four years ago.

I'm only kidding. I've been thinking about re-watching the Wire but don't know if I want to commit.

I've never rewatched a series...

Or even re-read a book.

I'll sometimes rewatch films.

Is Christina Hendricks in every single episode and scene?
