They’re back.

That’s former Detective Chief Superintendent to you. He’ll be needing a 00 now.

We’ll have to smoke the dress

Previously on Mad Men…

Richly deserves a large screenshot gallery, but for now I’ll content myself with these. Recaptioned as the original dialogue was lost in a time capsule.

The flinch factor

Speaking of Boardwalk Empire, the main problem I have is all the flinching. Take the scene where prohibition agent turned iron salesman Nelson Van Alden gets mercilessly teased by his coworkers during a demonstration of his doorstep patter.

Anybody whose attention isn’t divided between their iPad and TV has a pretty good idea what’s going to happen.

Which doesn’t make it easier to watch.

Close on the heels of the flinching issue (I’ve been contemplating a tip sheet about how to survive an encounter with Gyp Rosetti, but with season 3 about to detonate, it’s difficult to see him being a problem beyond the next episode) is fatigue from counting the people getting whacked, and in the case of Owen, packed.
