Painted Black, Soundtrack drama and other excitement

leave a comment »

Mad Men is so cool. I can understand why the BBC have chosen to tease the British public with a season trailer soundtracked to the Rolling Stones Painted Black. But it’s just so heavy handed and c’mon this is a show where the characters live and breathe illusion and advertising, somehow the show deserves better, not to mention that Painted Black wasn’t even written until 1966. I know Season Two skips ahead from where we left it in late 1960 but 6 years? That’s Desperate Housewives territory. Anyway, this is seriously exciting.



There’s not much I can add on the topic of the return of 24, Charlie Brooker’s summed it up perfectly. My only concern is I don’t think they’re going to catch anyone or avert any terrorist acts unless they get Chloe back on coms. Frankly anyone would be better than these fools in the FBI who can’t even get a satellite link up. I predict two things from Day Seven though – Jack’s going to fall in love with FBI agent Walker, or she’ll die. She’s currently buried under a plastic sheet and some dirt but this is 24, she’s nowhere near dead yet.

Fashion Police

The SAGs Fashion Police was much less bitchy than the Golden Globes. One of the most peopular searches for my blog was Taylor Swift, mentioned in last years FP post, so hey, I’m going to go for tags:

Tina Fey’s looked pretty in her Bryan Reyes dress, but.. hey I don’t want to be namechecked when she collects her next award, the fashion police can ‘Suck it’.

tf1To summarise – everyone from Desperate Housewives looked awful but Peter Perfect has a crush on Dana Delaney so he’s forgiven her green leather! Kate Winslet looked amazing but she got a mixed reaction. Angelina on the other hand was praised for more chic (read boring and back to front) frock wearing. Brad Pitt was claimed the spitting image of Cary Grant. Finally the Mad Men cast – how weird is it to see them a la 2009? Christina Hendricks in David Meister and January Jones in Luxotica. Fashion forward people.
