Season 4 premiere is good.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

There is not a single new clip of footage in any of the promos for season 4. Have they always done this? I know Weiner and Co. are crazy secretive, but I wonder if it's because this new season jumps way ahead in time or something.

They have always done this.  Season 2 promos were GREAT but was a special shoot (not season footage).  3 and 4 are just clips from previous seasons.  Weiner won't let them release any footage until the premiere.

Just got the new Rolling Stone, which has a review of the premiere.  Thought this quote was quite amusing and apt:

Quote from: Rolling Stone
When Don talks about the creative side of advertising, he sounds uncannily like Burt Reynolds as the seventies porn king of Boogie Nights, who muses, "What keeps them in their seats even after they've come?

I get screeners for work because I work with AMC.  But I'm sworn to secrecy or Weiner will have my ass.

I'm just glad it was capitalized!   :yabbse-undecided:

Thoughts on the Premiere?

It was odd seeing Don being stripped of his essence.  But for the most part I loved the theme of as everything changes, the more it stays the same.  It's hard to single out the first episode because you know that it's part of a much larger context. 

I must be in the minority of finding the best part of the show is the story of Don's interrelationships.  That's why I thought Season 3 was by far the strongest of the bunch.  Rumor has it that we will be seeing more of the office as opposed to Don's personal life, which is a shame.

I love Nora Zehetner to an unhealthy degree, but she shouldn't try to do accents.

And will someone please finally get the balls to tell Matthew Weiner that his creepy kid is not an actor?!?

seriously. it was okay for season 1, then in season 2 it got more than a bit awkward. and now it's like.. i'm not sure if they're writing him as a psychopath because that's what they want to do or because it's their only option.

awesome season so far though. much better start than 3.

I would be totally cool with them casting his other son, though.  That kid is a pimp.

Marten Weiner doesn't bother me too much, because I think he fits the character.  Of course, I am under the impression the character is a complete psychopath. 

I have this dread that they are going to start moralizing stories this season.  They threatened it a bit last season when discussing about the bombing in Birmingham and civil rights in general.  Luckily Betty put it back on the straight and narrow with the line, "I hate to say this, but this has really made me wonder about civil rights. Maybe it's not supposed to happen right now."
