Mad Men. I’m so late.
I did a post about Entourage the same way, like 3 seasons after it started I was like “OMG. hav u seen like this awesome show where they r just like rich and live super awesome lives?!11 its called liek Entourage or sumthing. so good!” Ha. Ehh. So yeah, I just wrapped watching the first DVD from season one. Wow, I’ve been missing out heavy. Brilliantly acted, produced, shot, etc. So entertaining but in a low-key, almost relaxing way I suppose. I’ve never worked at an ad agency but all of us here at THE BRILLIANCE either have run, are running our own projects or have freelanced in this arena at some point - so fun to look at the roots of the industry, or at least an interpretation of it. Especially seeing as how..corny ad agencies are now. No more suits, just a ‘cool jeans convention’ at most agencies now, ha. And a competition of who has the squarest, literally in shape, glasses. Ha, I’m sorry - I suppose I just wish it was like it was back with the Mad Men a bit more, a stack of fresh white dress shirts in your drawer to get sharp if you didn’t make it home the previous night before your 9am meeting. Dig. Although, the sexual harassment and lung cancer can stay back in that era, yikes.
