I can't believe we don't have a thread for this show. If I missed a pre-existing thread, I apologize.

When I saw this in the last episode, my jaw hit the floor:

Season 4 is in a month? Should I spoil it for myself by figuring out which actors aren't coming back?

I'm caught up.

BTW, as enjoyable and excellent series go, this one is surprisingly difficult to talk about.

Any opinions as to why that is?

Style over substance? It's not so much lines (though I still find myself laughing at the Roger-Peggy coffee exchange* from last season's finale) or plot developments as it is how cool everything looks/is. Weaker writers and a weaker cast could've had this cancelled a few episodes in (OK, it's AMC, so it would've made it a season). Of course, I've slept very little since last Monday, so who knows.

*Roger Sterling: "Peggy, can you get me some coffee?" Peggy: "No."; where is Johnny from Airplane! when we need him?

I've thought it's got something to do with the setting - not just how it looks, but the era. The series feels like it's already happened, so discussing it is like discussing history.

And yes, the coffee exchange was hysterical. And with lesser writing, the lawnmower incident* could have been a serious shark moment.


* G n' R refers to this as "The Lawnmower Incident?"

See also: Band of Brothers and The Tudors. OK, The Tudors happens to just not be even close to as good as the other two series, so that's not so good an example.

Perfect example.

Slash('s ghost writer**) makes "The Spaghetti Incident?" (as a title, punctuation oddities and all) make sense, even if it is little more than a directed barb at one person. One of many small reasons I enjoyed that tome.

**Is it a ghost writer if he's referred to explicitly (on the spine, etc., with a "with" credit)?

Flavorpill's Official Mad Men Drinking Game

(kind of meh, but I applaud someone actually writing one down ... even with the requisite/gratuitous "[take a drink] for every drink that gets made [on screen]")

The episodes are usually rerun several times throughout the week. Check your local listings. :)

Is there a show with a more worthless "scenes from next week" segment than Mad Men?

Almost the same question was asked earlier tonight at my house: "Is there a show whose 'next time's have less information about subsequent shows than Mad Men?"
My response: "Arrested Development."
