• Missing Kids, Everywhere

    I used to spend my weekend working.  After so many years, I decided to reward myself a bit, by occasionally not working, but spent the time while kids are asleep to indulge myself into watching series, especially those critically acclaimed type.  Due to that, I have watched #MadMen, #BreakingBad, #Fargo, #HouseOfCards, #OrangeIsTheNewBlack etc. Quite often I also read the online recaps and reviews of the episodes of series which I have yet to read about or yet to discover.  So, guess what, I discovered #TrueDetective just few weeks back.  Got the whole series, but only have the time at night to watch them, after everyone is asleep.  Also, #TrueDetective, just…

  • We Are Family

    “What if there was a place you could go where there was no TV? And whoever you were sitting with was family?” That was the line by Peggy while she was preparing the pitch for the Burger Chef.  I kind of like the idea of no TV, as most of the restaurant tend to have TVs on, of which the kids would be starring on the screen instead of having conversation with the parents. Rather irritating?  No?

  • Watching Favors

    I just had the time to watch the episode 11 of season 6 Mad Men last night, after the 50km ride with Adrian and team. First impression, Don Drapper was coming to term in dealing with his ego on the post merger. I do not like Sally Drapper that much.  Since the beginning of Mad men series. The part when Sally saw Don having sex with Sylvia (aka Mrs Arnold Rosen), he told her later that, he was comforting Mrs Rosen who was very upset.  Wait a minute.  That seems to be a really bad and probably concrete explanation for many men out there sleeping with someone else’s wives.  Well,…

  • How I got inspired instead of turning mad

    I was not a fan of Mad Men until I had an opportunity working on a pitch for AMC recently. Whether we got the job or not, that’s secondary, but the experience of watching and probably falling in love with the show, and until recent week that I was actually inspired by Don Draper’s character, his charm and his passion, as well as charisma in creative field. I am not saying that I will be nor inspired to start sleeping with whoever I am attracted to, as I remain faithful to my dear wife (must clarify this LOL), but his willingness to take risk.  Ok, I know it’s fiction.  Nothing…

  • Mad about Mad Men

    I was not a Mad Men fan, until I had a conference call with a partner in UK, whom spent almost 30mins on the call telling me how exciting he was with Mad Men season 5.  At that point of time, I was like, what the heck, seriously, I am not that crazy about any series, other than CSI: Las Vegas, which I do not watch now.  And perhaps LOST, which I was lost half way. So, with the Apple TV we have at home, I decided to spend some time to watch Mad Men randomly (because not all episodes and seasons available until beginning of May), and I find…
