Pretty cool, the best bit imo is the intro recreation.

Now the black people are protesting outside, as if threatening to become actual characters. I see go-go boots and shorter skirts and blocks of trippy color. I see the first hint of plumage on the men. Don and Megan’s new high-rise apartment is a splash of white carpet and zebra-striped pillows. It’s like their world is about to burst, as we’ve always known it must. This updated “Mad Men” is a mind-blowing retrogasm.

It's like when you watched the Beatles Anthology for the first time and halfway through everything started being in color.

I honestly feel sorry for anyone who doesn't have it, because watching hockey would be a pitiful affair without it.

Ya pretty sure CBC planned it that way!

A Little Princess btw (s1ocki), Friday, 23 March 2012 22:37 (2 years ago) Permalink

i wanna host a screening party on sunday night but i dont have cable is the thing

A Little Princess btw (s1ocki), Saturday, 24 March 2012 15:12 (2 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, I think you're probably out of luck on that unless they do something odd about the digital release schedule or if someone has pirated and uploaded the preview copy.

mh, Saturday, 24 March 2012 15:14 (2 years ago) Permalink

hoping for the latter :D

A Little Princess btw (s1ocki), Saturday, 24 March 2012 15:18 (2 years ago) Permalink

do you have any neighbors with cable? bribe them with snacks to run a really long cable from their place to yours for a couple hours.

I wonder how much of MM's popularity rested on early 60s fashion (more than one'd think, I expect), and how damaged that popularity will be by late 60s fashion (which I feel like is relatively hideous to most modern eyes).

Dan I., Monday, 26 March 2012 00:28 (2 years ago) Permalink

I wonder how many critics will be like "They're overdoing crazy late 60s styles!" cuz it's almost hard to believe how weirdly people actually started dressing

Dan I., Monday, 26 March 2012 00:30 (2 years ago) Permalink

I wonder a lot of things haha

banana republic might have some trouble selling/marketing the 1966 stuff to its target audience. although it'll do fine in other places that don't capitalize on drabness.

suspect that the major & cooler characters will stay a step or two behind the times in this regard

For Mad Men we made turkey meatballs with quinoa with a yogurt sauce with roasted squash!

JacobSanders, Monday, 26 March 2012 01:08 (2 years ago) Permalink

10 more minutes and then BOOM, to the DVR!

Peppermint Patty Hearst (VegemiteGrrl), Monday, 26 March 2012 01:09 (2 years ago) Permalink

We're doing the same, waiting till it has recorded and then playing it so we can skip ads

Lolling at Megan's Québécois swearing.

LaMonte, Monday, 26 March 2012 03:34 (2 years ago) Permalink

the baby wipe scene was some seriously lol-trolling. took me a clear couple seconds to decipher the image, half in horror that my tv had actually been hacked and i was reliving goatse all over again.

kelpolaris, Monday, 26 March 2012 03:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

WHen did Don tell Megan about Dick??

JacobSanders, Monday, 26 March 2012 03:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

scene with roger and harry had me rollin'

-Joan and her mother getting on each other's nerves, maybe my favorite thing about the whole Ep... Sooooooo perfect. Every tiny little jab and raised eyebrow, mwah

- is Megan going to go crazytown, or am I projecting?

- Pete's plaid jacket at the party was outstanding.

Peppermint Patty Hearst (VegemiteGrrl), Monday, 26 March 2012 03:53 (2 years ago) Permalink

SHHH! it's just starting on the west coast...

Fozzy Osbourne (contenderizer), Monday, 26 March 2012 04:00 (2 years ago) Permalink

t-minus how long until we figure out megan is not who she says she is?
