Mad Men – Season 4 is Killer

Has anyone been watching the fourth season of Mad Men? That show is off the hook. In the past four or five episodes (about half way through the 13-episode season), it’s shifted into a whole near gear. It’s sublime. It’s more cinematic than most movies I see in theatres these days. Here’s a season 1 trailer that won’t give anything away:

I didn’t think they could beat season 1, and they didn’t with season 2 or 3. But now, I don’t know what’s going on, if they’ve hired new writers or producers, but each episode plays out like a work of art. They’ve dispensed with all the melodrama that was over-taking the storyline in seasons 2 and 3, and they’ve dug deep. Real deep.

Check out Jim Emerson’s blog for someone who seems equally impressed with the show. He has a lot more insight into all this cinematic stuff than I ever will. And it’s kinda cool.
