Heat can beat the Spurs iff all of the Big 3 have a great game. Can that happen four times in seven games? Yes it can. Heat in 7.
You are on to something here. I think the term you are looking for is "evil". This is someone who from an early age was not simply selfishly concerned only with his own happiness, but also was enraged by other people's happiness. "Evil" is a good short-hand for that condition.However, I think its a mistake to think about it as an either/or question, as in either he is evil or he is mentally ill. After all, it could be both. Apparently, schizophrenics aren't much more...
That's just his negotiating open with the City of Seattle on his deal on a new arena.How many hours does Bird give Vogel before firing him. Loaded team has a major meltdown; gets a new bench of solid contributors elsewhere and they turn to crap. Crappy old bench go elsewhere and become solid contributors. Something's wrong there.
Seattle Clippers has a certain ring to it.
I really liked the final scene,both as a visualization of Draper's appreciation of Bert Cooper's enigmatic and whimsical style, belatedly just taking a second to simply like the guy; and a great tribute to the career of Robert Morse. I also liked the way Weiner fucked with us, making us think for a second that Bert had faked the whole thing to engineer a reconciliation.
Wasn't there also a couple of episodes where Joan worked as a fill-in for Harry in the TV department and was extremely competent, but then Harry came back and dumped her w/o even thinking about it?
I think if you read through this thread, there are a lot of posts along the lines of "Why doesn't Don just bang the chick from Scream and take the job with the dude from JAG?" It seemed worthwhile to highlight the line that is supposed to explain everything about what has been motivating Don this season. And, yes, it has been obvious for a long time that Don has a lot of self-hatred and insecurities, but, no, I don't think I would have been able to capture that as the sort...
One of the best parts of this show is when they dramatize the creative process. Peggy starts out proving that she has mastered the art of being Lou Avery, but when she is confronted with the possibility that being "adequate" may not be good enough in 1970 for a chick, she decides needs to figure out how to be Don Draper. Don teaches her the secret is to figure out how the product could fill the hole in your own fucked up life. Don reveals his deep fear that he has done...
I admit, I thought they had painted themselves into a corner with Don, where if he got back into action it would inevitably be sad. That just goes to show how little imagination I have! Don got the best fun of 1969 like he got the best fun of 1960. Loving Draper vs. Cutler. Don looked bold at then end, but Cutler going after Commander cigarettes was like breaking into Don's back row with his queen. Ginsberg got a network sitcom and got written off as clunky as any TV...
