my mad career as a screenwriter [Jun. 28th, 2013|11:06 pm]

I have a great idea for an episode of Mad Men where they're all trapped on a yacht, adrift at sea, with no cigarettes. Eventually they start smoking the boat and it starts sinking and you think "they can't try to smoke the keel! it will ruin the structural integrity of the boat!" -- but they light it up. Then you think "they can't possibly smoke the transom, they'll start taking on water!" but after a long standoff Betty makes the first grab for it and they all rip it apart and start stuffing it into rolling papers while they take on water like they backed into Niagra falls......

Those people smoke to freaking much.

Uh. This makes me wonder what *you've* been smoking, considering there's been a whole lotta pot smoking on this past season. lol

Ah. Then you're in for a treat because season 2 is good, but seasons 3 and 4 are killer good. So much love for them.

That was an actual script at one point ... but the actors smoked it.

I adore this show. Even got a housemate into it. That's rare. (Breaking Bad would be impossible. I may take up Justified to keep the place stocked with masculine badassery.)

Justified will work for that. *g* Also hunt out the British series, Luther. Idris Elba is most awesomely badass in it.

My mom got really mad years ago when a bunch of people started protesting all of the smoking in movies and on TV. She finally quit at age 70 because of chronic bronchitis. She has an oxygen machine and an inhaler she has to take everywhere she goes. Now she smokes e-cigarettes. We do live in the future.

They smoke about as much as people did back then.
