I know comparing Mad Men and Game of Thrones is ridiculous—a case of apples and oranges—but this week’s episode really kept me on the edge of my seat! Much more than the season 3 finale of GoT even, imagine that.
Be warned: possible spoilers ahead!
“Did she go to China for that tea?” That awkward moment when the mother of your secret ex-lover starts talking about the physical satisfactions of love.
My 3 favorite people at SC & Partners having a good laugh. I highly approve!
Is it just me or does Ted look like James Spader here? Think Secretary and Boston Legal days. Anyway, he is fast becoming my favorite ad man.
I woke my roommate up with my poorly muffled squeals as this scene was unfolding. Just the funniest most uncomfortable thing ever!
Oh Sally babe, you don’t know what you’re unlocking.
Burn in seven hells, you disgusting pig. That’s after the flayed men have had their way with you.
In other news, my girl Peggy got herself a cat. Let’s hope it does a cleaner job in mortally wounding rats!
That’s me right there, though nearly not as cute.
From the 13 shows I follow only 2 remain: Mad Men and Game of Thrones. And while both Sunday dramas are entertaining enough, I’ve always needed a palate cleanser. The Good Wife usually did the job, and so did my Monday sitcoms, How I Met Your Mother and 2 Broke Girls, but they’re all on hiatus now.
I watched Girls, an entire season of it, to serve as replacement, and I don’t know… It has its moments but I don’t get what the hype is about. Conversations while taking a dump, boobies just because, non-lesbo girl-on-girl action from out of nowhere, the whole YOLO destructivity… the rawness of it feels so contrived.
I’ve dropped Hart of Dixie a long time ago but I watched an episode recently to see what’s been going on… and then I remembered why I bailed on the show in the first place. I love Rachel Bilson but the show can get unbearably stupid sometimes, even for a fluff show.
Jumping ship on Criminal Minds for the same reason. I’m sorry Matthew love but enough is enough, eight seasons is loyalty enough!
How I Met Your Mother is getting really sloppy, writing-wise, and I want to drop it too. But I can’t. I’ve got a ticket to Farhampton and it seems to be non-refundable.
CW’s tying Nikita with a 6-episode season and I must say I’m quite relieved. It’s gone on for far too long now and the whole star-crossed assassin lovers arc is starting to piss me off. For serious.
There was really nothing wrong with Suits but I wasn’t really getting anything out of it either so I dropped it as well.
I don’t know what went down with NBC and Dan Harmon but Community is not the same without him. For Chang’s sake, how did they expect to pull off something as insane without its creator? I know it doesn’t make sense but I wish ABC’s Don’t Trust the Bitch in Apartment 23 were aired in its place instead!
Giddy excited for the return of Homeland, Good Wife, Big Bang Theory, and Newsroom… in that order. And for this as well! The twist is so obvious, but shit, three words: JAMES FUCKING SPADER!
Currently watching Scandal. It reminds me a lot of BBC’s State of Play, though it isn’t infinitesimally as brilliant. Watching just because I haven’t found anything else better. Suggestions, anyone?
