Days in New York...


For a full explanation, please see the start of the countdown.


Mad Men
1x03 Marriage of Figaro
1x04 New Amsterdam
A well-paired, er, pair of episodes. Mad Men is the sort of on-going-story-based show (which most dramas seem to be these days, of course) that works well when watched in multi-episode chunks, because the storylines flow across episodes. Of course, it means the line between what happened when is harder to remember -- and there are obvious pacing issues in reducing a one-week gap to one-minute!

On another, related, note, Blu-ray is annoying -- the films/TV themselves may be pretty, but the slow games console-style loading times and ugly menus are a right pain.
