Well, when A. They are both up for the same Emmys every year and B. People look me in the face and tell me that Mad Men
is the best drama on tv, not only do I take particular offense, but I also, naturally, draw comparisons.
I know it's a soap opera, I know that it's not gonna have any real action, but I just can't bring myself to care about most of these people. Most all of them are pretty awful (some more than others) and while everyone was not particularly awful as usual this season, I still couldn't bring myself to give a shit.
I won't say that it's a bad show, 'cuz it's not. It's got a great cast, it's well written (most times) and it looks gorgeous. However, the fact that a soap opera can take the Emmy for "Best Drama" 4 years in a row is just absurd to me.
Drama: These fuckin' Madison Avenue pansies don't even know the meaning of the word.
