MAD MEN

Is this shit starting up again?

I fucking hate this show and the ensuing public circle jerk surrounding it.

Then enjoy "The Good Wife" and shut the fuck up about it.

I can't wait for the premier!

You're the cunt who started the thread, OP.

by Anonymousreply 303/25/2012

Yeah, it's back.

SO don't pay any attention.

It's hard for me to understand the mindset of someone who starts a thread to trash a TV show they don't watch.

by Anonymousreply 503/25/2012

So many people that I know tell me I should watch Mad Men. I'm also a big entertainment buff and read about it constantly on entertainment news websites and magazines.

Yes, I may like it, but I am very resistant toward it because I can't stand all of the fucking hype (no show can seriously be worth this much attention) or the fucking fans.

Sorry, MM fans.

This is more about you than anything else.

At this point, does anyone really care about this show anymore?

It seems to disappear for a bit longer than most, they took that whole year and a half break while they bitched over money. Even for diehard fans like me, many seem to have become tired of it.

I like the show in general but my boyfriend said something about it this morning and it made me realize that I really couldn't give a shit when or if it comes back.

Did they ruin the momentum of their viewers, or many of their viewers by being so pompous about their schedule and short season?

On the other hand, Breaking Bad did that whole FUCK YOU to its fans with the "this is the final season.. no, psych! It isn't, we're having a second half" thing and I'm still anxious to watch it.

Ok. Then why would you care if its starting again. Just ignore what you can't stand. You'll live longer.

And let those who enjoy what you don't enjoy it and leave you alone in their revelry.

by Anonymousreply 1003/04/2013

I love Mad Men I have been watching it from the beginning(can't wait for it to start up again). But even I hate the hype it gets. It is a bit like the HBO show "the girls."

The media latches onto shows and talks about it endlessly even though the show is watched by less than 2 million people. People in the media are detached from society. I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of the attention it gets is simply because they buy off columnist to talk and rave about it.

Didn't Weiner's demands have something to do with other shows on AMC getting their budgets cut?

I don't know anyone who watches this show.

Hey R10, is the refulgent irony of your post lost on you?

It's a discussion forum, toots. You know, "pointless bitchery" and all?

Run along and revel elsewhere if you can't take it.

Why start a thread about a show you hate? You pay $18 for this? You sound stupid.

I assure you, R17, that of the two of us, you are clearly the dumber one.

Year old thread but I love Mad Men.

Don't be so sure about that, R18 / R16. You're the one making a sad moron of yourself spewing your rabid little fandom in a thread about a show some people want to mindlessly bitch about, all while failing to see the irony in your own rant.

Run along now before you miss your short bus back home.

Will Sally be on the tampoon when the show comes back?

by Anonymousreply 2103/04/2013

I loved it until Don married Teeth and turned boring.

by Anonymousreply 2203/04/2013

"At this point, does anyone really care about this show anymore?"

Yes, it's a soap opera and nothing much more. I am dying to see Meagan dump Don this season. It will happen!!!

Starts up in a month.

Breaking Bad and Justified are much better shows.

by Anonymousreply 2603/04/2013

Boring and overrated. Gays love it because it's essentially soft core porn. But it's so vacant and yet so in love with itself. It had the potential to be a truly great show were it able to get out of its own asshole.

There hasn't been one profound or truly memorable moment in the entire run. It won't have legs in syndication.

Agreed!

by Anonymousreply 2803/04/2013

R27 -

There are several memorable moments:

The "it's toasted" speech.

Don giving his brother 5K.

Bobby telling Don that he needs a new daddy

The Carousel speech

Don visiting Peggy in the hospital

Don "I don't have a contract" line.

And those are just from the first two seasons.

OP, [R's17 & 20] Can one of you start a new thread titled "Stupid, Stupid'ER, & StupidASS? I'd like to watch that!

by Anonymousreply 3003/04/2013

Very excited about the new season.

by Anonymousreply 3103/04/2013

I enjoy the Mad Men program. But I don't understand why it only seems to be aired early on Sunday mornings in Canada.

by Anonymousreply 3203/04/2013

Tried a couple of times and couldn't get into it. The clothing and decor are fun but not really my "type" of show. Find it boring.

by Anonymousreply 3303/04/2013

It's my favorite show, by far. Yes, sometimes I wish the pace was faster, but it has a lot of pay off and the acting is excellent. My other favorite show is The Good Wife, so I don't know why the earlier poster made it seem like being fans of both shows is an either/or.

I've tried to get into Breaking Bad and Justifed, but I couldn't. I would like to have another drama to be into, since I've given up on Once Upon a Time, Revenge and Smash, and I'm about to give up Nashville. I watch True Blood American Horror Story and Game of Thrones, even though they are kind of silly. I don't like any of the Showtime shows other than Homeland and even that was spotty last season.

I just miss the shows I was *in love* with like X-Files, Buffy, Felicity, Once and Again, Lost, Gilmore Girls....

by Anonymousreply 3403/04/2013

You were in love with "Lost"? Your taste is now questioned...

Well R17, I am not R16 / 18, but personally, I saw a thread that was entitled simply "MAD MEN" and assumed it would be a place for fans to discuss the upcoming season - a logical conclusion based on the title, if you ask me. If the title had said something much more clear about the OP's opinions and intentions (i.e., "Does anyone else hate MAD MEN?") then you'd be well on your way to having a decent point.

by Anonymousreply 3603/04/2013

I'm embarrassed for R17/R20. Trolldar it, he posted 4 times in thread about a show he claims to hate, and has the self-delusion to slam other people for liking the show. Freak.

by Anonymousreply 3703/05/2013

Don't you hate it when you are tied up and forced to watch something you hate, OP?

My sympathies to you.
