    MADMEN”?


    Stay in your wheelhouse. Nerd culture references is this strip’s thing. Geeks bite the heads off of chickens at the circus.

    Smoking, drinking and affairs!?
    Yeeeaaahhh!

    But how ’bout the drugs?

    TV is made for entertainment – it is not video instructions on how to run a business. I see this going very, very badly for MMM.

    @Sack of Rabid Weasels

    That’s an old fashioned meaning for ‘geek.’ It’s rarely used that way anymore. Languages are not static, they change. Nerd, however, is still a different thing.

    I think Rita has been chatting with the Alaskan base commander.

    “Make it so.”
    Mad Men with a Star Trek crossover.
    Captain Kirk’s behavior with Captain Picard’s tag line.
    Picard’s Enterprise had a lot of naked dalliances, too.

    Rita’s been using ‘make it so’ for years. She probably has no idea where she picked it up; she just thinks it sounds commanding.

    Either Jay put way too much creamer in his coffee, or I forgot to color it…

    Jay’s just sad he’s not been commanded into the stairwell with Dana.

    I am sure there are Mad Men geeks. :)

    I WAS initially watching every episode of Mad Men (and participating in the comment boards over on Slate). After a couple of seasons the lack of accuracy got to me.


    Having lived those times, they can’t fool me. I was married in ‘59, divorced in ’76 and I worked in engineering offices (not advertizing) but I understood all the office politics. And earlier I worked in a hot dog store (with fries and fried chicken too). I know more about the work environment from all the small manufacturers and consulting firms, and I was a woman doing "a man’s job" as construed at the time.


    Strip today just shows the present trend of tying sex into everything, but I DO remember feeling very relieved when I found out that a future boss of mine was gay.

    @DAZZ

    Rita, of course, trusts the accuracy of the show without question. It’s on TV, therefore it must be true.
