There were some real shots taken at “Mad Men” around these parts yesterday by Mr. Jon Bois. While everyone is certainly entitled to their opinion, as Warming Glow’s self-appointed temporary attack dog (*barks once, sniffs intruders shoes, lays down, farts in sleep*), I looked high and low for a relevant story so I could bring it up. Well, Mad Men Yourself is back. So there.
I get that people may think it’s a little slow developing. But I think the bigger issue is that it’s slow-er, not slow. A generation that grew up on a two second shot that cuts to a one second shot that smash cuts to BAMPLOWKABOOM *kazoo noise* would understandably get fidgety watching a show that paces its story and takes periodic detours. That’s not to say if you don’t like “Mad Men,” you have ADD and/or are an idiot. Nor does it make me some cultured, douchey TV connoisseur (which I assuredly am not, based on my last few posts if nothing else). I just find it to be a very good show that actually tells a good story involving interesting, multi-faceted characters. Something there ain’t a hell of a lot of on TV right now.
Yikes, that was a crappy argument. I’ll leave the elegant wordsmithing to Matt from now on, and stick to what I do best: completely unnecessary cheap shots at those I disagree with.
Jon Bois: *pushes glasses up nose, begins sweating uncontrollably* Hi, I’m Jon Bois. I was told there would be fingerbanging at this address?
Woman: Dear God, did you bring an accordion? And a donut?
Jon Bois: *fondles accordion, looks embarrassed* Yes, I like to play. And the donut is for my blood sugar.
Woman: Sorry, you’ll not be fingerbanging me. I’ll wait for that debonair Danger Guerrero from the banner pic. He knows a woman like me does not want to be asked before a fingerbanging. He knows to just do it when the moment is right.
Jon Bois: Oh, hamburgers *takes long drag off inhaler, shuffles away*
SORRY JON! STILL LOVE YOU!
