I am a Mad Man

In Uncategorized on April 7, 2013 at 5:31 AM

Well, its almost here! The season premiere of Mad Men. I am both happy and depressed by this; happy because one of my favourite programmes is coning back, but saddened because Paul Kinsey and Peggy Olsen aren’t returning. Paul left when the guys split to form their own company, and Peggy left because Don didn’t respect her. I admired Paul because there was a fellow pipe smoker on television, and I thought Elisabeth Moss was cute, and she just fit the show so perfectly!

When I first started the show, I thought that it was decent, but didn’t expect it to be a major hit for the network, nor did I expect it to win just about every award that it is nominated for. I have since grown to enjoy the programme. The thing that troubles me most is that they bring Paul back as some Buddhist monk-type with a ponytail that starts at the back of his skull, and they write him off just as quickly! What the heck, man! I know that they cut him because of budget issues (there was a major story about it, hence why almost every week they cut players or relegated them to guest stars) and his character didn’t have chemistry with Don, but I would love to see him in the coming season.

They let Peggy go, and I can only hope that she will return somewhere, even if she winds up humping Don at some point. They brought back Ken Cosgrove, just to piss off Pete, but no one calls Salvatore? I get that in the show he was stymied by the fact that by the mid sixties the ad companies where going to cheaper and easier photography for their ads, thus killing the art department, but I always felt that he and the other seconds had great chemistry, but what do I know, I’m just a fan.

I’m hoping that this season will continue to piss me off by not having that pretentious d-bag Paul (whom I loved, if you remember)!
