... does anyone else ever do that?
Also, I am enjoying Mad Men with caveats.
The dialogue for this show (at least in the first series) is almost always incredibly boring and said with such a stale delivery, even by the good actors, that I find this detracts from my appreciation of the design. The design is gorgeous, in every way - the sets, the costumes, the composition of each shot, the colours and patterns. I'm working my way towards feeling sympathy for a few of the characters - which I think has been my biggest hurdle so far in actually wanting to watch an episode. But yes - bad dialogue, said stiffly. If this is a style thing, maybe I can appreciate it too, on some level. But mostly I just want to give the characters new, interesting lines to say that would convey deeper forms of the same sentiments.
