I've actually replaced a scene or two from other shows and found I did not hear what I thought I'd heard.
Actually, "frak" (or is it "frack"?) was used on the original BSG (1979-80 timeframe), much less used than their standard expletive "felgercarb".

I guess the latter was too hard to get out (4 syllables!) and was consigned in the new BSG as a brand of toothpaste. biggrin.gif

It was originally "frack" in BSG TOS (1978), but now has become "frak".

I think his relationship with Anna (the real Don Draper's widow) was perhaps in the same category. He always seemed a very different, relaxed, honest person when he spent time with her. Perhaps because she knew his truth, he could relax with her.

If you call making sure Ted and Peggy's romance doesn't further grow "open hearted" -- then sure.

It's amazing Don's Mistresses don't know about each other by now... lol...

I thought for a sec I thought Megan snapped out of being an idiot. Guess not.

That's because the internet hasn't been invented yet and nobody's posting about what a douche he is on their blogs.

I was hoping for something along the lines of if Tiger can do it... But yeah true I suppose.

The 2013 Emmy nominations list


Lead actor in drama series - Jon Hamm, Mad Men

Lead actress in a drama series - Elisabeth Moss, Mad Men

Drama series - Mad Men


Excellent!

Both should win....no brainer.

It's about making the viewers believe in the characters being portrayed by the actors, and IMHO, they succeed, hands down

No brainer? Breaking Bad has a lot more nominations overall and I'd take Bryan Cranston over JH, though it could go either way. But far from a no brainer.
post #2261 of 2329
In recent years, Mad Men has won Best Drama four times and Bryan Cranston has won Best Actor in a Drama Series three times.

I'm kinda ready for the two series to reverse those outcomes, with Breaking Bad winning Best Drama and Jon Hamm winning Best Actor in a Drama Series. But Cranston continues to impress.

As much as I like Mad Men, I feel Breaking Bad is possibly the best show ever on TV (w/ Rescue Me a close second) and I'd like to see Cranston and Paul win again, as well as the show taking the honors. But if BC doesn't win, I'd have no problem w/ JH taking it.

I guess my love for Mad Men is that I have lived during the times and can better relate to it.

I think one thing that hurt MM was the one season they were not on due to conflicts between Weiner and the studio, that kept them out of the game.

Society likes violence, so no surprise Breaking Bad is popular....not taking anything away from Mr. Cranston's acting ability.
post #2264 of 2329
And next year at this time, Mad Men and Breaking Bad will likely be going head to head again in the nominations based upon each show's final seasons. And Dexter, for that matter, though they don't seem to get much Emmy love.
post #2265 of 2329
Very true. Thank goodness for DVR's.

I was alive then too, but not yet a teen, so while I remember the zeitgeist, I didn't really experience that world. But that was such a formative time for our modern culture; it's great to see those times from the perspective of Madison Ave., which was so instrumental in creating this new world.

Our society loves sex too; MM has that while BB has the violence (though there's much more menace from the possibility of violence than actual scenes of it in that show). But Dexter is much more violent and has more sex than either BB or MM, yet as much as I like it, it's not quite on the same level as those two- even though Michael Hall ranks w/ BC and MW in the acting department. Shows story still trumps all (not to say that Dexter hasn't had some engrossing storylines).
post #2267 of 2329
Michael Hall is a very good actor too....excellent in 6 Feet Under series before his interlude into Dexter.

You joined 5 hours ago, have exactly 1 post, and you've already got 10 thumbs up? Well done.

Oh, and among those who've seen it, who doesn't love the show? Welcome.

I believe you start off with 10 thumbs for some reason.

The Roger character (and performance) might be the best ever created.
post #2275 of 2329
Mad Men is one of those shows that show up in my Que and I sort of shrug and watch it relatively with little interest and then the lights go down and the show unfolds and I am moved and maudlin and impressed. The next week rinse and repeat. I (alone) and with no one to see stood and applauded the last episode of season.

I love Mad Men. It is the best show. My favorite characters are Peggy, Peter, and Don. Mad Men is my favorite show. smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif

It will be interesting to see how MM carries out to the final fade out.

Having lived through this time period, and having a brother in law that was a NY ad executive, adds to my intrigue.

Here's to hoping for a knock out final season!

Well, you're going to have to wait until 2015 to see how it ends. eek.gifmad.gif They're splitting it into two parts - 7 episodes in spring 2014 and 7 episodes in spring 2015.
