Re: Mad Men-Season 3 Chat Thread

Any fans of the show?
Thought's or comments on the last three episodes of the third season?

I thought Sunday's episode was great, I especially loved when Peggy smokes pot! "I would like to try some marijuana" The first two episodes were a little dissapointing though.

Re: Mad Men-Season 3 Chat Thread

I found Episode 3 absolutely hilarious; so many funny/weird moments

And yes, "I'm Peggy Olson, and I want to smoke some marijuana" is an amazing quote

Re: Mad Men-Season 3 Chat Thread

Awesome show. I did not watch the first two seasons. But when waiting for Breaking Bad which comes after it, I decided to tune in.

I have to watch my DVD's of it to get up to speed.

Re: Mad Men-Season 3 Chat Thread

saul, which do you prefer - Breaking Bad, or Mad Men?

I have seen a couple episodes of Mad Men and... bleh. It's not that I don't understand why people think it's good, it's just that I don't care about anybody on the show and am thus bored by it. I'm going to give it a few more episodes, because I was told it can take a while to get into it. I can appreciate this, seeing as I was a huge fan of The Wire (best show ever, says me, and many others), which is brilliant across an entire season, but not necessarily great for standalone episodes.

Re: Mad Men-Season 3 Chat Thread

I think you really half to watch form the very beginning to really get into the show. The first two season were absolutely amazing!!! It's really one of the best written shows on TV. However I was a bit disappointed with the first two episodes of this season.

By far Breaking Bad. It is beautifully written, great acting. Brian Cranston was awesome in Malcolm in the Middle, but even better in B.B. The story lines pull you in. I watch the reruns as much as possible, I have the DVD's for when I want to watch.

I am not an expert on Mad Men since I have only seen a few episodes

But I would still say B.B. is the superior show despite the Emmy's and Golden Globes Mad Men has won.

Re: Mad Men-Season 3 Chat Thread

Having watched all seasons of Mad Men, I can honestly say that it is a good show not a great one. It is definitely not tune in television for me. The problem with MM are that there does not seam to be any big payoff at the end of each season, and the characters are not that empathetic and relatable. I think the novalty of the nostalgia of all things 60s is what got the show the rave reviews but I don't think it is enough to get the fans coming back.

I missed the original broadcast and the rerun

This is why it's so hard for me to keep up with shows, I always forget when they are on!

I'm working on catching up to Season 3, and then I will join the discussion.
Best new show these days, by far. <3

Re: Mad Men-Season 3 Chat Thread

Peggy and her new roommate are going to fight like cats and dogs.

Is it me or has the quality of writing on this show really dropped for season 3? It seems a whole lot more fragmented and disjointed, and the stories are wandering aimlessly. Why did S-C merge? They were closing deals with booze every five minutes last season. It feels like the Brits were brought in just to give Don something to brood about and Roger something to drink over. I gotta admit, Peggy doing Ann-Margret in the mirror was LOL-worthy.

Joan looks smokin', though. Nice to see that she can still wiggle.

The most disturbing thing about this season so far is the way they are handling Sal. That scene between Sal and Kitty (?) in episode 4 was hard to watch. I know he is gay, but that was like a caricature of a gay person. I find it hard to believe any closeted homosexual in the 1960's would act that way, even at home in front of his wife.

I got to thinking, the other day, what would get this show back on track, and I concluded the following:

1. Don needs a really torrid affair with a really substantial woman. A brunette, because he always steps out with brunettes. Somebody older than Joy but younger than Bobbi, well-read, sophisticated, but with an artsy side. Not unlike Midge, but without the Greenwich Village posse. Possibly one of the Brits--a hot new design consultant or something. Get Eva Green to guest star. This should not be a one night stand or casual fling. Don falls in love with her.

2. Betty should be totally vulnerable, forgiving of Don's previous transgressions, and have a sense of renewal about their marriage until discovering Don's affair, whereupon she has a complete nervous breakdown, develops an alcohol/drug addiction, and re-enters intense psychotherapy. Out of a sense of guilt more than anything, Don stays with her until she becomes such a wastrel that he leaves her.

3. Roger gets Jane preggers and she has twins.

4. Bert Cooper has a stroke and has to leave the agency.

5. Pete outperforms Ken and becomes the sole Head of Accounts. Trudy finds out he is the father of Peggy's child and leaves Pete.

6. Harry gets a bigger role at the firm as television begins to squeeze out more traditional forms of print advertising.

7. Joan wears tighter and skimpier outfits.

8. Peggy and her new roomie constantly bicker over which is better--Sweden or Norway.

9. Pete proclaims his love for Peggy but she has a crush on somebody else.

There--I think that covers it.

Re: Mad Men-Season 3 Chat Thread

I agree, the writing on the show has really dropped off this season. Were not left with any real cliff hangers or suspense. The first two seasons every episode was so powerful, now it's just a little bland. I really hope they step it up soon!

Re: Mad Men-Season 3 Chat Thread

Anyone see yesterday's episode. Betty had her baby and that's about it. I've been so disappointed so far this season. When are the writers going to actually write something compelling?! The only story line I really care about now is Peggy. Where did all the office drama and sex go????
