I intended for this blog to be positive. I don't enjoy hating on things, but Mad Men is really not grabbing me at all. I trudged through the first season with very little investment. I did enjoy learning how Jon Hamm became Donald Draper, but that's about it. It's very common and popular to shit on shows that are well known and loved, and I don't enjoy doing this.
A great TV show should grab you from the first couple of episodes, if not the first. Not the first couple of SEASONS. I really want to like this show, because I've heard such great things about it, but I just watched Ep. 2 of Season 2 and was bored out of my TITS. I hate Pete Campbell, he is a Cunt. I'd like to stick a fish hook through his neck fat and dangle him from a two story balcony. Somebody needs to die and I think it's him. Most great dramas have deaths that occur early, and if they don't there is some really seedy shit going on that compels you to watch the next episode.
Watching guys in suits sit around and talk advertising is not interesting. I love Jon Hamm, but I don't understand how they kept this show after the first season. There are a lot of people having sex, but I'm not into it. Kill somebody, or have somebody sodomize Pete Campbell with a dry umbrella.
I'm sorry America, but I'm not a fan of this show. Maybe I'll feel differently after trudging through seasons 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8.
