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 finale totally met my expectations, the problem is that I expected to be disappointed.

The ending was predicted, too.

But as the weeks have gone on, Eileen's theory (which I have embellished upon above) has stuck with me. It explains the season's obsession with Coca-Cola (which turns up even in this episode, in the form of the broken Coke machine). It explains the season's obsession with connection.

And it explains the long, long wait we've had for a vintage Don Draper pitch. (By my count, we haven't gotten one since the sixth-season finale, which was the Hershey's pitch that lost Don his job.) Why shouldn't the last Don Draper pitch ever be one that gives us a famous ad that feels like it came out of a Don Draper pitch?

I will say this, there's a certain poetry to Don's wife dying because she smoked too many cigarettes, and now apparently he's off to peddle Coke to give the world diabetes.

Evil mother****er. Maybe Sally will get fat.

**** it. The series truly ended the moment the door magically shut on a waving Bert Cooper.

I haven't seen the actual end yet, but I'm loving this episode 48 minutes in. No issues or complaints at all.

I thought it was an excellent end to an excellent series.

Everyone's story was neatly wrapped up, although Sally Draper in the kitchen, like her mother, was a little disappointing because before her mother's diagnosis, her future was so promising (although it was foreshadowed by Don's speech to her before she got on the bus with her friends).

And now I know who to blame for that horrible song growing up.

Peggy and Stan was a little hokey.

Richard's an asshole. As I suspected.

Don's personal acid trip.

Nicely done Roger.

Nice Finale overall.

It's been telegraphed for so long that I can see your point.

On the contrary, I thought that Richard was as honest as a man can be in that situation. He said earlier that he had a "plan", raised his kids, built companies and was ready to relax. Joan wasn't.

At least he didn't lie and lead her on. Honesty always wins, IMO.

Eh, Don's had several. Don is still Don. He didn't go home for Betty because he's Don. He didn't use his vast resources to leave the commune. He cried to Peggy, which made her realize she didn't want to be like Don (not that she ever really was like him).

I loved the Chanting Bowl chime exactly when Don thought of the Coca-Cola ad, along with Joan and Richard doing "coke".
