my impressions is we were discussing "idealized" in the sense of what version of the show would most satisfy you.

I guess I'd like to know why that "sounds terrible" then.

Melissa W, Friday, 27 April 2012 23:35 (1 year ago) Permalink

I'd keep Roger barfing if it helps.

Melissa W, Friday, 27 April 2012 23:36 (1 year ago) Permalink

I don't think it sounds terrible, though it would most definitely be a minefield that could get very terrible, very quickly.

It's not this show, though.

what interests me is seeing the characters talk through ad campaigns, have a moment of inspiration, pitch the campaign, run the campaign.

while this is fine - most campaigns don't go this smoothly. insert after "pitch the campaign", "get shot down by client, come up with even more inspired concept, get shot down, present a safe, uninspired pile, run campaign."

which is more similar to what we were seeing with those fucking beans!

it seems the AMC series "The Pitch" is gonna scratch that itch

It's not started yet. They just had a preview episode on a few weeks back. Reality series about ad agencies (or teams of ad men or whatever) pitching.

what was megan's original ambition? to act?

supreme sundae (reddening), Monday, 30 April 2012 03:19 (1 year ago) Permalink

never really been revealed

Grimy Little Pimp (Jimmy The Mod Awaits The Return Of His Beloved), Monday, 30 April 2012 03:23 (1 year ago) Permalink

yes "acting" but that's probably a metaphor or some shit

Great episode. Tableau at the end of the awards dinner was awesome.

Just realized that was Julia Ormond.

when megan first explains her idea for the heinz thing she really acts like peggy (in season 1)

seriously, THIS GUY (daria-g), Monday, 30 April 2012 04:24 (1 year ago) Permalink

I couldn't get a read on how Megan felt during Peggy's congratulations. It sort of felt like "uh, thanks."

Johnny Fever, Monday, 30 April 2012 04:26 (1 year ago) Permalink

I figured it was her feeling a little unsure how to take it, as though maybe she felt semi-guilty for accomplishing something via Don even if it really was all her. Maybe I'm just reading into her dad's speech though.

GoT SPOILER ALERT (Gukbe), Monday, 30 April 2012 04:33 (1 year ago) Permalink

peggy: "this is as good as this job gets!"

could be that megan is thinking, really? this is as good as it gets? get me the hell out of here!

i mean, maybe she doesn't actually want to work in advertising

seriously, THIS GUY (daria-g), Monday, 30 April 2012 04:49 (1 year ago) Permalink

Yeah, that's what I got out of it. "ok, we landed a pitch for beans. great. why does everybody even care."

new Bobby looks *younger* than previous Bobby. Eventually Bobby Draper will just be played by a muppet and voiced by Frank Oz.

they've got to be setting roger up for a hard fall, economically speaking -- the first few episodes see him paying off everybody for favors, and tonight we hear he's still financially supporting his first family, and didn't jane say something last week about how the divorce was going to be difficult/contentious, money-wise?

hard fall onto the pavement from the window u mean

i wonder if matthew weiner has someone on staff who combs through social media every week and says "now they're all saying it'll be roger who jumps out the window!" and matthew weiner laughs and gets out the show bible and changes it to, like, harry or something

INT: DON AND MEGAN'S APARTMENT

BOBBY runs towards the balcony and slips on his own toy, falling to his death. DON looks on, unconcerned.

There was an author on The Daily Show the other night named Robert Draper, who was probably roughly the age fictional "Bobby Draper" would've been now. I pretended it was him the whole interview.

Johnny Fever, Monday, 30 April 2012 06:25 (1 year ago) Permalink

That was an understatedly masterful episode. Roger and Sally were just delightful together.

Just realized that was Julia Ormond.

Hah, I thought it was the same actress who plays Lane's wife at first.

post-LSD Roger is a hoot. I was wondering if he was going to go back to Mona, seems like that was kind of a "thing" for that generation, marrying the same person multiple times (cf Liz Taylor etc)
