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.

I hope next season is better.
Assuming that your claim of overt predictability is true (and I would say that it isn't), is predictability necessarily a bad thing? What does predictability do in terms of the project of the show? Step your game up, Dane.

No, predictability isn't a bad thing but I stated early on that this season didn't feel like the previous seasons.

I also stated several times that my expectations were too high.

As far as my "game", I don't have enough passion for this show anymore to go into further detail. I was just expressing my opinion.

I got season 1 of Community from Amazon for $12.99, DVD though.

Amazon really hit it out of the park for their Thanksgiving Sale though.

I haven't seen it (2 failed false starts) but this is a hell of a price. I assume I should snap it up anyway?

Alright, I'm jumping on that as well. It's one of Fr. James Martin's favorite current shows. That's a good enough endorsement for me. http://www.americamagazine.org/blog/...&entry_id=2532

It was a semi-TIC post. I pulled the trigger 5 minutes after I posted.

Enjoy. Don't let the hype lead to unreasonable expectations but it is quite good.
