Up there as my fave along with Sopranos and possible now Fargo.

watched about 2/3rds of the first series, quite boring.

1/5 for the ‘man men’ thread

fucks sake

Watched the first couple of episodes and found it incredibly tedious. Gave up.

my experience too. Not sure if I should rate it… maybe watch 3 episodes I think and didn’t feel it, but as the type of bellend that constantly tells people you need to watch 4 episodes of The Wire before it ‘clicks’, maybe I should abstain…

Tried to get into it three times and couldn’t, got bored with the first three episodes.

The fourth time stuck. 5/5

So you’re saying you need to give it 4 episodes eh

It caused everyone to get into Ayn Rand so it’s directly responsible for the mess we’re in these days.

Four and a half.

Now you’ve got Norfolk’s maddest men

One of the most impressive analysis of toxic masculinity there has ever been, and will ever be. Once the first season “twist” of Don is out of the way the show really expands and proves they knew what they were doing.

Bar maybe Betty Draper who feels massively under used and wasted in the latter seasons.

5/5

Doing this for the first time currently. It’s very brilliant. Peggy is the best one. 5/5

This is what I hoped it’d be like but I stopped watching cause don was driving about trying to uncover some mystery that seemed really dull but was treated like some huge thing. I also quite liked in the early episodes when it’d focus on a company trying to sell something which was dumb but enjoyable and replacing that with don being boring wasn’t for me.

Did it?

I really really like Mad Men. I love the pace and the design and the clothes and characters, it’s good shit

Laine Pryce was a good character wasn’t he?

One of those I’ve been meaning to start for ages but there’s so much of it it’s always quite daunting. Will come back to this thread in five years or so.

5/5. Loved it. But can totally see why people don’t
