    I thought this was a Chris Hansen thread.

    So I only caught the very first episode of this ... and it felt slow. Does it get better, or is it just a pacing I may never get used too? Like, how many episodes in before I should make a concrete decision to sally forth?

    The first four episodes are hard to watch.

    I think I watched the first episode with Vivienne, she didn't watch the second and I gave up after that, then six months later I gave it another go and then I got hooked.

    I actually didn't enjoy the first two seasons much. I'm all about 3, 4, and now 5 though!

    Huh. I found Mad Men interesting and compelling from the start.

    The first four episodes to me, was the actual pilot. It just felt they put down so much back story (and it pays off in future episodes) it was hard to really get into as the story wasn't going that far forward at the time.

    Granted, it was interesting at the start, and that's why I kept watching. But there's something about the latter seasons that I'm enjoying more.

    Yeah I didn't find this to be the case when I was watching it. The pacing was a bit off and in all it was an awful lot of exposition with not a lot of promise as to where the plot was going to go.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I stuck with it because I love the show now, but I definitely struggled at the start.

    The first season did spend a lot of time creating this entire little world and setting up all of these people's lives while kind of begging you to hold on for the payoff when it seemed to be taking extraordinarily long

    But hey it fuckin' worked so

    I was hooked on mad men from the getgo

    and by from the getgo I mean when it took me years to start watching it and always being two seasons behind

    and then finally due to the long break being caught up

    honestly I plowed through it too

    there was never enough for me

    there still is not enough

    I love that world

    Also, someone already posted the Carousel pitch scene from the finale of season 1 which is a powerful and superb scene. But damn, that closing scene when Don is coming home and he has his little dream and then comes home to the reality. Oof.

    Yeah, I've done that. There's nothing cool about getting stuck on an amazing woman and then finding out that all her friends are complete holes and losers that aren't even remotely as interesting, clever, or unique as she is, but there they are...reciting what they skimmed.

    I know the show's already got 2 more seasons signed and all, but a huge ratings bump still rules!

    Friends, we are having a Mad Men party this weekend and I'm trying to figure out what the hell I should wear. I could just go with a plain suit which is my fall back, but I figured since they're in the early 60s now I could always try and have fun with it. I don't have any super loud blazers, so outside of finding something at goodwill here are my options:

    olive suit, charcoal pinstripe suit, blue suit, grey houndstooth suit. Also have a blue blazer and a tweed blazer. Tons of vintage bow/ties... I also have a pair of yellow pants that are just dying to be worn. Also blue pants, khakis, white pants, etc.

    I was thinking maybe the yellow pants/blue blazer with an appropriately colored bow tie.

    My other idea was to go as "just got out of bed Don" bathrobe, white boxers etc.

    the walking dead sucks because they couldn't afford the show runner and they apply the comic's hook of prolonged agony without allegory
