Don is edifying but depressing. Roger's Misty Mountain Hop is inevitably pathetic.
Don hangin in the break room, every show is something I've never seen on TV before. Still, I thought this show was best when it worked on both levels, you could enjoy the adventures of Draper and Sterling, and at the same time see emotional sides of people that dont get on screen much. Somehow, I think they're short-changing some of the fun adventures Rizzo and Ginsburg must be having (and don't get me started on Trudie Campbell's erotic journey, Im working on some...
I thought the last 5 or so episodes were great.
Another great episode. I liked how the part where Don was marking his whiskey bottles to remind himself how much he drank was a product placement. "We here at Canadian Club urge you to enjoy our product in moderation. But if you are going to be a white knuckle alcoholic anyway, we are good for that too."
Admittedly, the cool part of Mad Men is that (since the first season) it has asked "If the characters have rich enough emotional lives, how minimal can you be with the plotting and still create a compelling TV show?" After the first hour, though, I worry they might be pushing this question beyond the breaking point. Many/most of the plotlines seem no more inherently interesting than my own actual life.

Kind of humorous they had a lockout last year to cut salaries on the pretext that small market teams couldn't make any money.
Fair point. Though, I always thought the Infinity Engine games had the best mechanics ever, just Torment didn't use them well. Did you get the EE of BG or BG2?
Played it, liked it but didn't love it. I've never played a game with a better story than P:T, but I've read hundreds of books with better stories. Like it or not, the thing that video games are really good at is presenting manageable strategic or tactical situations or puzzle solving. P:T didn't do an exceptional job at any of those things.
I like this post and mostly agree butBasketball players are definitely a lot biffer, than they were 30 years ago. I bet the average guy on the Miami Heat spends more time in the weight room than all of the 77 Blazers combined (including Maurice Lucas).The stuff about people getting hammered for dunking is more the 60s than the 80s. There were plenty of dunks in the era of Clyde Drexler and Dominique Wilkins.Defense wasnt that physical in the 80s, at least until the era of...
