On TV – Mad Men -my main reaction to the season finale was it was ….good. Not great. Not bad. In usual Mad Men style, there was a cliffhanger, but not with the same magnitude. They used up all their “wow – factor” in the previous two episodes. Suits started up again last night and it didn’t disappoint. Harvey really knows how to play hardball! But my pick for My Friday Favorite this week is:
- Dallas!! The original Dallas show ran from 1978 – 1991. That was from when I was five years old until I graduated high school. It was literally a fixture on the TV in my house my whole childhood. I went from being told to go to bed, to finally being allowed to join in all the fun. John Ross and Christopher have stepped right into J.R and Bobby’s shoes and another generation of Ewing sagas have begun. My favorite quote: “Blood may be thicker than water, but oil is thicker than both of them.” -J.R. Ewing. My DVR is set.
