Mad Men

First 6 or 7 episodes were boring as hell. The last couple episodes on season 1 have gotten a lot better. Started season 2 this weekend. Hopefully it only gets better.


It's not a very eventful show. I thought so the same, but eventually you learn to love it for what it is. The events leading up to and the end of season 3 is the show's peak so far I think.

I'm currently watching Breaking Bad (started 2nd season) and Entourage.


I will never understand the love that Mad Men gets. I understand it is a drama and all, but nothing will happen of note for weeks sometimes. I tried watching it because a few friends suggested it, but I just got bored watching it most of the time.

It's a deep character development show, insanely well written, with a pretty amazing insight into a different era. The events that happen are very subtle, outside of a couple things. If you go in expecting some wild plot or developments, you come away disappointed. Well into the 1st season I felt exactly like you did, but either you learn to appreciate it for what it is, or you stop watching.

Just got into raising hope. Such a great show.



You gotta watch the episodes you haven't seen. That show is one of the funniest on television. I love it.

Exactly, it thrives off of subtext. Too many people watch that show, have everything go over their heads, and then bash it.

Don't get me wrong, I understand completely fine, I just don't find it interesting. I watched most of the episodes actually and didn't mind it until I got caught up and realized how little was happening on a weekly basis. I even wanted to like the show really, but I was basically just waiting for anything to happen of note on a weekly basis. Also, how much have the characters actually developed throughout the series? Not many of the characters have really changed for a character development piece. Just because I don't care for the show doesn't mean I don't understand.

Well character development usually means when a character is fleshed out and given more information with which the viewer can judge and think about them, not necessarily the character him/herself going through changes.

I like Mad Men a lot, but it's a show I can definitely understand people not being able to get into, and unlike the Wire I don't encourage people to "stick with it" if the first few episodes aren't their thing.

I personally like a little development over the amount of time they have covered. The Wire is another show that I couldn't really get into, but I don't care for cop shows in general so that makes sense, I guess. Both were just a little too slow in story lines for my liking.

Just finished the end of season 1 of Supernatural. It ended like I thought it would, and some endings to a season are just correct and don't need some odd twist to make them better. I wish I didn't have to work tomorrow so I could watch the start of season 2. But the end of the NIT semi will have to do. Go Gophers.

Battlestar Galactica

Like 5 episodes in. I'm a big Sci-Fi guy so I like this.

I think these last few episodes is where the Don Draper character began to grow on me.
