The Playboy Club

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Ok, looks like a derivative from the Mad Men episodes with Lane's girlfriend. Other than the cleavage, anyone else think this show has nothing going on for it and will fail spectacularly for NBC?

Gonna be awful. Anyone else not like Amber Heard at all? (no homo)

Yeah, probably going to be a fail. Amber Heard can't act, but she sure is hella hot.

I'm putting my money on a fail as well. The only promising thing about that promo was that they actually had music from a Norwegian band (the one that went like "Beggin', beggin' you, Put your loving hand out baby")

How can they put this on network TV? Or is NBC's newfound sway over the FCC going to be enough for them to say "screw you" to the haters and and let them do whatever they want in the later time slots.

I'm pretty sure it's from Madcon, actually. They used to play it on the radio 24/7, and even though the lyrics are the same, the one from the video seems to have a stronger beat. Compare for yourself; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=edtun2odUyc

Sounds like you are right....I listened to the open and the voice sounds the same...

this looks horrible.

Wow, did NBC really greenlight a show that seems to be about a guy who walks around doing a half-assed Don Draper impersonation all day?

The whole Playboy image and brand has gone downhill and is far from the status that it once was. It's a shame too.

Enjoy paging through the The Playboy Club Bunny Manual (July 1969).

Sad but true.

I'll probably watch at least the first few shows to see how it goes, but I agree with both of the above statements.

Oh well, with Mad Men not back until probably next April, this will at least feed some of my ongoing need for a fix of early 60's style.

There's also another show, about Pan Am Airlines coming to ABC in the Fall as well that is again very similar and looks like another Mad Men rip-off... http://articles.latimes.com/2011/may...rdess-20110518

Gotta love the TV networks, when something works they are very quick to duplicate
