Pete Campbell: Mo Money, Mo Problems
posted on May 8 2012

Slate interviewed Vincent Kartheiser, the actor who plays Pete Campbell on Mad Men. This episode has been out for a couple of weeks old, but I thought it was neat.

Slate: He’s a man of ambition, but he seems to get more unhappy the more he achieves. He’s achieved many of his goals—Trudy had the baby, he got a bigger office, he’s dominating Roger—but he seems to get crabbier by the week. Do you understand why he’s so unhappy?

Kartheiser: With success comes a level of sadness. You think, “I’ll reach this goal, and then I’ll feel a sense of completeness, of wholeness. I’ll feel that I have accomplished something. I will see myself as a worthy man.” And it doesn’t really exist.






So this MetLife commercial is awesome

Tha last 7 minutes of Friday Night Lights
posted on Aug 20 2011

It’s been over for some time now, especially when you consider that it was on DVD after airing on DirecTV, before completing its run on NBC, but the wife and I only finished it last night. We didn’t want it to end and prolonging our DVR viewing was the only way to cope.

Not going to ramble about insights or angles on this final montage, but in my opinion the last 7 minutes of the show were its finest and fully embodied the constant overtones of the show… a show I consider one of the finest ever produced.






“What is Seattle?”
posted on Jun 20 2011






AMC’s ‘The Killing’ is excellent. Excellent.
posted on Apr 5 2011

And not just for the fact that it is set in Seattle. Nor for the gratuitous skyline and scenery flyovers.

It’s an excellent show, and we’re only two hours into it. Watch the two-hour first episode here for free.

(Also, it’s filmed in Vancouver.)
