Mad Men is back tonight, at 9 pm eastern, with a two hour premiere, directed by Jon Hamm. Here's a poster!

This show has been off the air for a long time. 525 days, apparently. Who's pumped up to watch Don Draper smoke and drink and womanize once again?

The previous episode, "Tomorrowland", aired in October 2010, so if you need a refresher, AMC has put together a video for you.

    I would totally be watching the premier, but comcast service is a piece of shit in my area and the basic plan doesn't carry AMC. I watched the entire series (thus far) on Netflix this past summer/early fall.

    Just finished watching series so far last week.

    Mad Men is one of the few shows on TV that really interests me.

    I watched season one of this

    It's a good show but my god it is the slowest moving thing in the fucking universe.

    It is like a snail race up a molasses hill

    Maybe it's just none of the side plots seemed bad/dragged for me, but I couldn't get enough of it (I would watch swathes of episodes each day if I had the time over the summer). The initial half of season 2 for AMC's walking dead however...

    Is that a forum conceit, or...?

    Because most places I go in real life people still can't fucking shut up about it

    I still refuse to watch it

    I do wish it featured more Don Draper being a dick to beatnicks

    That was easily my favorite part of the first seasons

    oh maybe it's just like the one or two people I know who liked it who have caught on

    basically people were like hey mad men has kind of a slow plot and weighty themes

    let's make a bullshit zombie show where nothing happens but we'll put it on the same network as mad men

    just scoop some tedious melodrama and bad writing that jackasses can't tell from good but assume it's good because it's slow and delivered badly aaaand we're golden

    basically walking dead is the zombie mad men

    in the sense that it is a brainless shambling wreck but at a casual glance an idiot might not be able to tell between the two

    isn't that the premise behind like every amc show?

    I mean Rubicon

    well I mean except breaking bad

    man mad men is so good

    I've seen every episode eight or nine times but I still catch new stuff every time

    the avclub articles are a great companion, plus just a goddamn stellar example of the right way to do TV criticism

    As always, when you have muppets parodying you, you know you've arrived.

    Really, spellchecker? You don't think muppets is a real word?

    I thought the second half of season 2 managed to pick up some steam that was sorely lacking from the earlier episodes, but yeah the sloppy writing became really apparent when AMC stretched the plot for season 2. I'm still capable of suspending enough disbelief to watch the show and then reflect on its flaws after the fact. This has also allowed me to continue watching Dexter which has gone to all sorts of places before and after the trinity killer season.

    I enjoy walking dead

    It's got a lot of really stupid shit but manages just enough moments of legit good TV that I keep watching

    AMC is certainly not doing the show any favors with the budget cuts and shit, though

    the first season of walking dead wasn't so much bad as it was utterly unable to live up to the promise of the pilot, which was pretty dang amazing
